    BTW, Maryland is voting on a same-sex marriage issue tonight. Wonder how they will fare on that.

    Like I said before, they must have strong exit polls, are comparing their votes to the exit polls, and calculating how accurately the polls seem to reflect the vote. That is my guess. (And exit polls are supposed to be stronger than just polls, because you are asking people how they already voted, not how they "might" vote... at least if your sample is random and accurately reflects the demographic.)

    I dunno. That's my guess. If someone else has more knowledge of what they're doing, feel free.

    So far, Fox and Huffington seem to be calling races quickly, CNN and AP not so much (Fox called Wisconsin for Obama, btw).

    Huffington has Florida at 85% of the vote in, and Obama is up by .2%. Unless something breaks soon in either direction, they're heading for a recount.

    EDIT: 87% of the vote, and Obama opened up to a .5% lead. But it looks like Santa Rosa up in the panhandle is missing yet, and that's Romney territory. Yeah, I think they're fubared... unless the remaining 46% of the vote in Miami-Dade REALLY pushes Obama's numbers.

    EDIT2: 0.6% lead for Obama now in FL, at 89% of vote. But I think it's likely for Romney to take both VA and NC at this point.

    Well, Nate Silver put it at 90% For Obama the day before the election. Other stat monkeys have had a similar forecast. Even if they were right, it's not going to be the results of this election unfold any faster.

    And that was actually with Obama behind Romney. I don't get it.

    I will say that of all the so-called swing states, Wisconsin going to Romney would be the biggest upset. It seems very unlikely based on polling figures up to this point.

    Looking at the map, VA might have a little play left in it, but it's coming down to Florida, Ohio, Colorado, and I suppose Iowa's worth a few points although it leans Obama. I think everything else will play out as expected in the west.

    Romney is up about 2.5% in the popular vote (about 1.4 million), but that's going to close up pretty quick once CA comes online.

    A woman at McDonalds said that her friend voted for Obama because Romney is against tampons. This is gonna be a close race.
