The “media” won’t have access to the exit polls until 5 PM Eastern. Plus they’re skewed Democrat by an average of 4.7 percent. So forget the polls, just vote.
OH will show a BIG lead for Ogabe at first b/c Cuyahoga comes in first.
You will have to be patient.
MSNBC/NBC has already called the election 🙂
As my brother puts it: “Well damn, it’s already over. NBC called the election for obutthead yesterday. Darn it all. However they do show Romney has 55% of the popular vote to 43 for obutthead, but we still lost on electoral votes.”
2 min vid. Pay attention to the last 30 seconds.
Michigan and Pennsylvania always start off huge for the democrats as well. They may take either or both but the point is you can not judge a state by early returns. So if you are out west and have not voted by the time polls in the east have still vote.
I live in a fairly red precinct of a dark red county on the outskirts of that dark blue dot deep in the heart of texas known as AUSTIN.
Turnout is Heavy at the nmiddle school where we vote- longer lines than I have seen in the past few elections.
I actually voted early for the first time, and was impressed then by the large numbers.
There are a lot of elitist liberals in this area-it is on the outskirts of Austin, but the majority in my neighborhood have tended to be Romney or leaning Romney.
Texas will go R, that was a given before the primaries started, but this area has tended to vote for the winner- this precinct has voted for the winning candidate every election since Bush/Clinton in 1992.
