    Color me skeptical. If those leads hold, Obama is going to have a god damn landslide.

    Interesting. Florida right now is bouncing around with about 20% in, between obama and Romney. It won't be called for awhile. And Ohio had less than 1% in. (Talking the actual vote, not the exit polls.)

    Okay, now that I'm checking again, I see that what's going on is that HuffPo refers to a lead so literally that it means virtually nothing.

    That's what I mean -- some of the numbers aren't even in, but they called them (like states in the NE for Obama and in the South for Romney) -- I assume they've got polling that already expresses the counts.

    But Ohio and Virginia, Romney is up in the latter by 16% with 20% of the vote in, and Ohio shows an Obama lead right now of the same. They didn't call them, but it's pretty clear that the vote is just coming in from regions that favor one candidate right now -- those states will end up being much closer by the end. We won't know for another hour or two (at least).

    I got asked for my ID because I was listed as an inactive voter. I guess they mail you a card that you have to fill out and send back to the City election department (oops I did not do that). If you do not, then they make you show an ID and sign a paper saying you are who you say you are before you can vote. Other people were just giving their street address and having their name checked off on a big list before they got their ballot and after they came out of the booth.

    I actually think an ID requirement is not bad, especially if there is a way to get an official/valid ID inexpensively for people without a driver's license.

    Obama won Vigo County, Indiana. If the bellwether thing holds true, he's our guy.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    What is up with CNN not calling Alabama yet? Has the latter just not posted any vote totals yet? There is simply no way its a closer state than Georgia or South Carolina....

    Florida has about a third of the vote in, and now Obama's leading again (by about 3%). It has already bounced back and forth between the two of them, switching leads, 2 or 3 times, so the results aren't dependable.

    Huffington didn't call it yet either.
