Take all of the Red state/Blue state boundries we have been used to for the last couple of decades and throw the map out the window

I honestly believe all 50 states are in play this time around..that also means Republicans can assume anything.

this is looking like a 1932 or 1980

A political shocker driven by Obama and his cronies like Andrew Cuomo in NY.

The “O”conony is in the tank and all the Democrats of NY can offer to the working class folk of the 9th District is “gay marriage.”

The economy, a big social issue and support for Israel all help to drive this race.

VERY happy for my NY friends! Even if some of them are upset tonight! LOL They’ll come around — I hope... Hopefully they’ll realize for the first time in almost a century that the Dems have been doing them a DISservice all these years!

Way to go NY FReepers (and other NY conservatives). You definitely deserve to celebrate tonight!

The articles I read say that the delay in announcing is due to the change in that district regarding new voting procedures (they switched to paper ballot with scanners). Takes longer than the previous method.

What’s with the AP’s reporting? The precincts counted had totaled 480 something, then reverted to 455, and now stands at 448 for the past 30-60 minutes (now 2:13AM EST).

Is there some kind of “vote holding” going on now?
What kind of dirty tricks are the Dems up to THIS TIME?

“Everybody seems to be getting a bit too excited here.”

I doubt that they can steal that many votes but the excitement reminds me a lot of the aftermath of the Scott Brown election.

Misplaced enthusiasm, it turned out.

Alan Grayson lost last November. Weiner is forced out of the House and a pubbie wins the replacement election.

I expect the Obama-Nuts to start attacking Jewish Voters as traitors and stupid for this. Believe me the Obama White House will punish Israel for this.

They can't. Far too many potentially vulnerable Jewish Dems are up next year. I predict Obama will suddenly act like Israel's best friend for the next 14 months. But it won't save him, and I count at least 5 of those Jewish Dems who could well fall.

A Public Policy Poll taken days before the election found a plurality of voters saying that Israel was "very important" in determining their votes. Among those voters, Republican candidate Robert Turner was winning by a 71-22 margin. Only 22% of Jewish voters approved of President Obama's handling of Israel. Ed Koch, the Democrat and former New York mayor, endorsed Mr. Turner because he said he wanted to send a message to the president about his anti-Israel policies.

Thanks for that lovely morning dose of schadenfreude; it was genuinely fun to read the comments of those brilliant and sensitive sophisticates over at DU, especially the ones that made such thoughtful and creative use of four-letter words to express their ever-fulminating rage.

It always seems to make me feel warm inside when I can imagine Progressives' eyes bugging out and spittle flecking computer monitors in Mom's basements all across America.

Hussein’s been spanked again. Even if he is capable of acknowledging the “shellacking” he refuses to understand or learn from it.

Any chance Turner is going to be another Scott Walker?

He, like most leftists, see rejection of their ideas and ideology by the masses

simply as proof that their ideology is superior to the thinking of the masses.

This is why they’ll never be introspective over a “shellacking”.
