Default Election Coverage [Electoral Vote Count]

Obama 146 McCain 162

Alright, I'm here to cover the election for everyone!



This is what we've got right now.
Those in dark colors are heavily [insert party name], those in light colors are lightly [insert party name] and those outlines are barely [party name].

9:20 EST Update. McConnell wins Kentucky
CNN has called the Kentucky Senate race for Mitch McConnell on the basis of the exit polls. With this victory, the Republicans have a good chance of keeping the Democrats to 59 seats. If Al Franken wins Minnesota, the Democrats will probably end up with 59 seats. It is likely that the Georgia race will go to a runoff in Dec.

8:40 PM EST Update. CNN Calls Pennsylvania
Based on the exit polls, CNN has now also called Pennsylvania. Without Pennsylvania, McCain has a very, very steep hill to climb. He has now lost New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, the only Kerry states he has a chance to win. He has almost no chance in Iowa or New Mexico. That means he has to win every single swing state. He has no margin for error at all.

Sweet. Yahoo! shows 175 electoral votes for Obama, they might be projected, but I'm still excited. He's winning popular vote by a hair, though.

@ Charbok: That's odd, because on the Yahoo! dashboard, it says 175 Obama and 52 McCain. :x But yeah, let's just wait till the end of the night.

And since it's by a hair, they'll be a recount if it's close.

I hate Al Franken...

EDIT: Oh-oh, the website I was using is lying. Now McCain's just went down and Obama's went up. Goot-bye website!

I checked on Minnesota a few minutes ago and McCain had 1,337 popular votes. :U

Can anybody explain what's wrong with Delaware, though?

I think it just might be a technical glitch, but in the world of politics, you're never too safe. =P
