I'm an NBC guy. It seems the least partisan to me... and I can't stand partisan coverage even when it echoes my beliefs.

Would like to here some suggestions, too. I hate Blitzer and some of CNN's bull****, but they do have a very constant stream of updates, so not too bad. The body language on Fox is...not promising for Romney. Flipping back to NBC and ABC a bit.

Linda McMahon (of WWE fame) has now spent $100 million on two losing senate runs. Wow.

Saying there are still 4 hour lines in parts of Florida? You can still vote if you are in line before closing time. JFC, what is wrong with that state that, 12 years after embarrassing itself, they still can't run a goddamn election.

New York Times has a cool graphic on how each candidate can win. Shows how huge Florida and Ohio are.

^that scenario thing looks bad for Romney.

I honest didn't vote because I haven't took the to explore each candidate and his views deep enough, however I did watch all the debates last month. Another reason I didn't vote is because I feel both of them are way too ego driven and full of themselves.

This has nothing to do with the candidates themselves but I am hating my facebook & twitter timeline right now, its black vs white on some real racist over the top exaggeration ****.

NBC calls Pennsylvania for Obama. That means if Romney doesn't take Ohio, he's toast.

Florida surprises me. I assumed that was going Romney. I'd already put it in the Romney column. But it's still too close to call and Obama is leading. Bizarre.

Looking at the spread in the percentage so far in Ohio I can't imagine it will be too much longer before that call comes.

Looks like the lead for Florida has swung back in favor of Romney.

Everywhere I am seeing its too close to call with Mitt leading. But by leading we are talking by a whisker on the end of a whisker of a lead.

Add to that the fact that in Dade Co., only 15% of the results are in and that has a huge latino vote for Obama.

Greater Miami region is only at 20% though, that should offset it imo.

If the % remains consistent in Miami, that will mean 1.2 million votes for Obama. This would also mean around 745,000 votes for Romney. That's a huge swing and when I glanced at the other counties that had a low % of the votes in and it didnt really seem like there could be enough votes to overtake this disparity in Miami-Dade Co. Again, this is based on the numbers at 26% votes being in.

Obama takes Wisconsin. That's a biggie. Looks like Ryan couldn't deliver his home state.

It's huge, yeah. Should've gone with Rubio to help swing Florida and the Latin vote.

Florida is a squeaker so far at 76% votes in but Obama with acvery tight lead and still the cvast majority of Broward and Dade counties are not in yet and those typically go big time for the Dems.... If Obama winds up taking Florida, its turn out the lights time and everyone can get to sleep early!

Big surprise. The Republicans did not vote for anything with Obama. Their agenda from the first day was to get Obama out. No jobs bills passed through the house all other bills were fillibustered in the Senate.

Anyway, this election is over.

Romney needs Florida, Virginia, North Carolina and Ohio. He loses any of those it is over.
