We just lost Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, New Jersey and Illinois to Obama!!!! This is crazy!!! Damn they just added massachusettes...Tennessee just went to Mccain...Maryland will go to Obama...Conneticut is going to Obama...Oklahoma goes to McCain....Maine goes to Obama (at least 3 of Maine’s 4)...Deleware is Obama....DC is Obama... And why is this news? I could've predicted these results 16 years ago.

PUMA? My ass. I always said BS. THey’re a non-factor

I agree, they never had any numbers. Anytime we are counting on democrats (current or former) we're screwed.

At this point you can’t know who is going to win, so why don’t you knock it off for awhile?

Thank you! Comments like that put me into a serious, deep, coma-type depression.

Latest from NC. 23.39% “turnout” (percentage of registered voters) counted, 1 county fully reported, 15 partially reported, and the margin’s closing:

Obama/Biden (DEM)
52.62% 768,411
McCain/Palin (REP)
46.62% 680,854
Barr/Root (LIB)
0.48% 7,070
WRITE-IN
0.28% 4,104

Website is http://results.enr.clarityelections.com/NC/7937/12122/en/summary.html and it’s running slow, about like FR is. :)

KY 56% to 43% Mitch McConnell (R senate minority leader) re-elected from KY over challenger Bruce Lunsford (D).

NC Senator Elizabeth Dole projected to lose to Kate Hagan (D).

RK!!! How’s it going girl?!

I know, amazing isn’t it? It’s all based on what they “project” it’s going to be. They have no idea.

Even reading this thread will make you crazy with all the contradictions. I don’t want to have false hope, but I don’t want to give up hope either.

Ignore them. They called PA before any votes were even counted!

I’m not saying O prob won’t take MA, but they called it for him already and with 1& reporting, it was 49-48.

BBC is getting their info from ABC, which is their affiliate channel.

I hope McCain pulls off a win just to knock the smug self satisfied expressions off their faces and see them desperately back pedal.

Of course, if Obama doesnt win, it will be “all down to race..”

MSNBC just called Pennsylvannia For Obama...

IF it's true....I really don't want to hear Pennsylvania complain about their 40% unemployment rate.

Their choice was clear.

THANK YOU so much for using the proper wording - PROJECT.

Until a sufficient percentage of votes are actually counted/reported, that’s all the media can do to occupy themselves. Actually, doing shadow puppets would make them more credible.

We all know that projection is the liberals favorite pasttime.

I don’t believe a minute that you absolutely knew New Hampshire would not go to McCain. Also Pennsylvania was touted here all week and guaranteed by FREEPERS that McCain would take it but he did not!!! So I disagree with your tall tale.

Jeeze. Kristol and Juan are doing precisely what McCain asked they not do --- sending out signals that the race is over. I wish they'd change the panel as I wouldn't dare go over to CNN or MSNBC to watch them gloat.

Hey there!! They won’t call Virginia for McCain with 23% in or GA with 63%, but they call NC with 4%?? that makes no sense.

Did you notice they called IL for Obama, but have NO precincts reporting?
