    I suggest that you keep updating the OP as each state is called.

    Seriously - Vermont? You want to keep the OP updated? If so, I can lock the thread I just made - we posted it nearly simultaneously.

    edit: merge is a good idea.

    I'll stick to what I said earlier.. we should know relatively early (even if it isn't called until late). If the numbers are not surprising anyone, Obama has won.

    DrPizza -- delete my lead post if you can, yours makes more sense to have up front.

    So far, the most spectacular thing about this election is Chuck Todd's cool touch screen on NBC :D

    I don't understand how they're calling states with 4% and 0% reporting.

    Agreed - Kentucky only has 4.4% of the votes in.

    Some are just obvious, for instance they could technically just call CA for Obama. In any case the only thing that matters are the few battleground states.

    Nothing so far showing any indication that the state polling of the last few weeks has been off. But it's early.
