    EDIT: Freakin' Florida. 60% of the vote is in, and Obama's ahead by about .2% (15,000 votes). What's their limit for an automatic recount down there?
    I think every place that has that rule puts it at 0.5%

    Anyhow, if Michigan really is Obama's, that makes it the first significant thing that's happened.

    Still quite surprising Romney is doing as well as he is.. I thought for sure this would be a no-brainer Obama win..

    According to their map, the pre-election polling already had it designated as likely Obama's. (I dunno -- just telling you what they said the expectation was.)

    It's kind of funny though to see Michigan and Mass go for Obama; Romney needn't fear, though, he'll still get Utah.

    EDIT: They just called for PA for Obama. Any other networks call that one yet?

    Yeah... just found this online:

    According to this WSJ article, many battleground states, including Ohio, Florida, Colorado and Pennsylvania, provide for automatic recounts if the final margin is 0.5% or less.
    Ohio will count the provisionals and absentees first before checking to see if they are still within .5% and then redoing the count.

    No way.... It's been predicted by most that this would be a horse race.

    I might end up staying up REAL late to see the poll results.

    I'm looking at you 30, 32, 37 and District 7(because it is a nearby district.)

    No-brainer for people outside the U.S.?

    huffington just called Wisconsin for Obama. Waiting for confirmation from some other media outlet, since they seem to call them early and/or without showing their work.

    <1% reporting and they're calling Wisc. for Obama? How exactly does this work?

    I thought it'd be sort of close during the tallies and votes, but that the winner would still be known before it ended.. as close as it is right now it seems like it truly could go either way.
