Fox reports KY for McCain, VT for Obama. No surprises there. IN, SC, NC, and VA too close to call.

Mike November 4, 2008 at 7:02 pm

And Fox News is already screwing up their graphics. No surprise and neither are Vermont and Kentucky.

Indiana is worrying me… Mike, you’re familiar with the state. Is the county-lineup making sense?

Mike November 4, 2008 at 7:35 pm

Indiana is to Obama what NH was to Kerry. Obama spent alot of money there and lives in IL. IN will be a lighter shade of red and many counties will turn blue. I think McCain will win it. VA worries me much more.

In VA, watch the western Counties (Montgomery…where Blacksburg is may fall Obama) and the I-64 corridor Richmond-Norfolk. May be very telling…DC Metro will prob go Obama.

McCain is underperforming George Allen (2006) in a couple of counties. These counties are not completely in, but the early results are not looking good.

Mike November 4, 2008 at 7:48 pm

Culpepper and Danville

Well Gentlemen:

It doesn’t look too good. FL is looking too blue in the middle.

Mike November 4, 2008 at 8:04 pm

But VA is starting to look a little better. McCain is outperforming Webb in some counties, and those counties are turning out more than in 2004. That said, its still too early to know what’s going on in VA

Some stations are calling PA for Obama.. Not a good sign.

Sal November 4, 2008 at 8:30 pm

No PA for McCain.. Fox calls it…

Mike November 4, 2008 at 8:39 pm

YEAH! GEORGIA! Oh damn.

Chris November 4, 2008 at 9:04 pm

Fox News has it 163-81…not good.

Mike November 4, 2008 at 9:20 pm

Ohio to Obama. I’m off to have a Guinness before Obama taxes it at 125%.

Glad I stayed in tonight and stocked up on Sam…gonna be a long four years. Palin-Jindal 2012.

Matt November 4, 2008 at 10:49 pm

I think I’m going to be sick. How did this happen? At least Montalbano is gone.

Salinger November 4, 2008 at 10:58 pm

Fox is calling VA for Obama… Yikes…

Chris November 4, 2008 at 11:11 pm

It’s done…CA pushed him over. At least the Senate Dems don’t have a filibuster proof majority.
