    That's because politico hasn't given Obama Wisconsin yet. If everyone turns out to be wrong about Wisconsin somehow, the race would still be on.

    CNN is saying Romney isn't going to concede.

    Politico has Obama at 274 now. It's a done deal, I'd say.

    What's he waiting for?

    First we'll see where Nevada, Florida, and Virginia go. If he doesn't concede after that, I guess he'll be looking for a recount.
    As another interesting piece of trivia, at that point Romney will officially become the biggest asshole in the USA.

    You all seem to forget that the majority of United States citizens are not people who are making a highly educated political decision when they go into the voting booth. Far more often it's what's safe and familiar based on what they know has worked in the past. Obama is the Tide detergent or the Microsoft Windows of the 2012 election.

    Did I call that or what? I also predicted it wasn't going to be close, I figured Obama to win by about 60 points or more. Nobody believed that!

    Obama's imminent win was obvious, even 9 months ago. It was obvious (at least to me?) that this wouldn't be a contest... maybe that's why Romney's campaign tried so hard to make it seem like failure wasn't possible?

    Currently Huffington has Obama at 290.

    I think the only weird spot on their map is Ohio, which has 80% reporting but Obama and Romney are tied percentage-wise -- the last 20% must make a big difference, based on their exit polling.

    But even if Ohio goes back into play, it's still not enough to drop Obama below winning threshold.

    CA has 13% reporting, and Obama is within 0.3% of Romney in the popular vote. Literally 300,000 votes.

    Note: Nevada got called for OBama awhile ago.

    So far he is only up about 21, which is not close to "60".

    Also, these are very tight races, so yeah, it's damned close even if the EC ends up not being close.

    That is because the most populated counties (Fairfax, Prince William, Loudoun --Northern VA) tends to lean Democratic, and these are the very same counties that have the least tallied.

    As for the popular vote. Even though we can call states like Washington and California regarding the electoral vote, they still have only a small percentage reporting. Once the west coast is tallied up, the popular vote is going to be much closer, and may even swing in Obama's favor.

    Thanks... Huffington (and maybe some other sites) do actually have the state maps and you can check tallies on them, but I didn't know the party distributions.

    Yes, my impression is that he's going to pass Romney at some point. It's not going to be a blow-out margin, but maybe a percent or two altogether.
