    HuffPo has declared Obama winner and Politico has given Ohio to Obama as well.

    Well fuck.

    If Obama actually has Ohio, it's over. He should be at 275 adding up what he has so far and the fact that Oregon is essentially guaranteed to be his.

    In other news... The Libertarian party was pushing for Gary Johnson to get ~5% of the popular vote - which would be enough for the Libertarian party to receive federal funding for their campaign, among some other things. The projections and polls I heard of had him at 6-7%.

    Gary Johnson barely got 3% in his home state. Much, much less elsewhere. Nowhere close to the 5% goal.

    Yeah, as soon as they called Ohio for Obama, my FaceBook account and smartphone (cuz of all the FB notifications) started going crazy. That's why it took me so long to get back here.

    I have a friend claiming it's too close in Ohio and they'll have a recount, but I think she's a little loopy -- I mean, heck, Fox News just called it for Obama. See below

    Don't know about the leanings of other counties, but that is a lot of people unaccounted for. Milwaukee and Dane County, to me, is like San Francisco and Los Angelos for California. You take one of those counties out and the results ultimately becomes skewed.
    You guys haven't really been listening to Johnny and me.

    Exit polls.

    All these news orgs (liberal and conservative) are agreeing because they already know how those "missing" counties are going to go.

    True, but the one thing Fox likes more than Republicans is a sensational story.

    But assuming the consensus is right, all the rest is gravy. Obama either wins with a minimum of 275 votes or a maximum of 332. It will be interesting to see if he gets the popular vote, as it will be a real head ache if he does not.

    I don't think he'll win the popular vote.

    Technically, according to Politico's tracker, if Romney takes FL and the other remaining states that will put him at 270, right?

    Oh that is interesting. I didn't know about that federal funding threshold. Too bad about that. We could use some more voices/perspectives.

    He's only 800,000 votes behind, and CA hasn't been figured into that tally yet. So... uh... yeah, there's a pretty good chance he will tie at least. It's going to go heavy Obama.

    That's because your map hasn't given Wisconsin to Obama yet.

    EDIT: But it just did call Colorado for him. And uh.... somehow VA now has Obama leading with 6% of precincts to go. I didn't expect that... and geez, with only 4% to go, Obama has opened up FL to a 0.6% lead. Didn't expect that either.
