I think Virginia and North Carolina are going to be right down to the wire as well as Florida. Ohio looking more like a sure thing for Obama. Obama also leading in Colorado.

On Fox now a reporter at Romney headquarters. It's like watching a sinking ship and the captain assures everybody it's not sinking.

Don't give up just yet. As I recall, Jim Webb made up a lot of ground at the very end to win his election back in 2006.

CNN is just rediculous now, the backgroud music has been getting louder for the past hour and people are yelling into every microphone....excited?

By the end they will be trying to yell over 1812 Overture blaring the studio.

Unfortunately Romney will get to abort this election because it will have been a legitimate rape.

Oh, lol. I misread that.

I really hope this election finally puts Rasmussen in the compostheap of history where he belongs.

Romney's lost OH in my opinion. Just too far behind to catch up.

Agreed.. but networks will be much more careful to call that one, because it is basically calling the election

They were reminded that they're making money from viewers. I'd bet that Fox viewers are very Republican leaning; can't be having them give up and turn off the television, now can we?

Yeah the particularly large buffoons like o'reilly, hannity, whomever I don't see them. I think they're throwing the chaff and/or the less idiotic of the lot (e.g. Cavuto from what little I've seen is not a complete idiot).

That said, fox business said Palin is coming up for commentary soon.

Who in the hell could have predicted this coming out of the 2010 "big shift"?

Pretty incredible...
