NPR says that black vote in the OH exit polls were as strong as they were in 2008. There goes that right wing blog talking point.

Any Pie Left: Fox drumming the voter fraud meme already....

Wait till they shut up when Romney leads.

WhyteRaven74: And in the Ball State Toledo football game, a Ball State TE had a leg injury so bad they won't even show what happened, let alone replays...

Must be bad. They showed that guys knee being blown up in the Tennessee game a few weeks back a few times and that was gruesome.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass. I'm sure the Black Caucus has some of the chicken left that you dumped on their table.

The Guardian's Jonathan Freedland finds a nervous atmosphere at Mitt Romney's Boston "victory party":

They called it a victory party but, at least at the start when the polls had not yet closed, it didn't feel that way. Yes, the Republican stalwarts - the movers, shakers and above all donors - who had converged on the Boston Convention Center had come dressed for a party, the men in their sharpest suits, the women in evening wear of the vividest shades. But it was their faces that gave them away.

When party activists know they are on course for a win, they smile easily. They laugh and joke. They all but shine with the joy of imminent victory. They talk to a stranger with a notebook readily, eager to share what they are sure is the good news.

But when things are more uncertain, the grin is of the rictus variety. When they encounter a reporter curious to know their mood, they scowl and refuse to talk, perhaps reluctant to say anything that might betray their pessimism.

Just turned on the TV... who the fark reports exit poll results with less than 1% precincts reporting?!

Barring something truly weird, or voter suppression more effective in PA than OH or something, yeah.
2012-11-06 08:40:11 PM

MSNBC national poll: Was his response to Hurricane Sandy a factor in your decision? 15 most important, 27 important, 23 minor factor, 31 not a factor

I don't think we have seen 1 interesting development yet (which essentially is good for Obama).

Lost Thought 00: How can we as a country be so ineffective at making sure voting places have all the equipment and staff they need to handle the crowds?

Republicans. It's by design.

And as I said before. So far, Nate Silver's prediction map is looking more and more like a Reality.
2012-11-06 08:40:55 PM  
Some traditionally Republican, rural/suburban counties in Ohio are reporting for Obama...
2012-11-06 08:40:56 PM  

bulldg4life: For the 40th time....John King tells us that most of Virginia is rural and the high density pop centers matter. Thanks numbnuts.

People give MSNBC shiat, but their election reporting is head and shoulders above CNN.
2012-11-06 08:41:05 PM  
CNN's results pages starting to get Farked as everyone starts finding out they have the latest numbers, lol.

coco ebert: August11: Linda has officially lost in CT. Proud of my state. Take your 100,000,000 dollars and stick it up your arse, Linda.

I mean, just stop a second and think of that amount of money. Wow. All of that for NOTHING.

She got 26% of the vote, right? That must count for something.

/my boss voted for her because he would have rather have had Shays. I wanted to slap his bald head for not making sense
2012-11-06 08:41:07 PM  
I'm concerned about VA Senate numbers right now, but hopefully the long lines will be a positive sign for both Kaine and Obama.

/ Al Gore just called out the Voter Supression Tactics as racist.

Any quotes from Freeperville? I don't want to subject my PC to their site.
2012-11-06 08:41:16 PM  

thenewmissus: I wonder how long it will be before right wingers on fark start hollering about electoral college versus popular vote. I would give it 5 minutes. I am being generous by acting like they are going to wait 5 minutes.

Let me play it out for you:

FARK Independent: Obama didn't win the popular vote so it shouldn't count he is not my president!!

Sane person: But Bush won with only the EC and lost with the popular vote why didn't you have a problem then?



FARK Independent:b-b-b-b-b-but BUSH!!!!
2012-11-06 08:41:16 PM  
I'm comforted to have Maddow explaining this all to me.
