11:56p Things are looking bleak for Ohio, but it’s not over yet.

11:47p Gave Nevada to Obama as expected.. Florida and Ohio are the open issues

11:38p Florida and Ohio are all that remain. Everything else is either decided or too small to change the outcome.

10:51p Florida, Colorado, Ohio….

10:07p Wisconsin still too close to call. I know the big boys have given it to Obama, but I’m waiting for 4 precincts to report.

9:55p Colorado not showing as strong for Romney as I had expected. I hope I was not as wrong in CO as I think I was in NV

9:53p CDN is calling the Senate to remain in control of Democrats with Brown loss in Mass. 2 more years of Sen. Harry Reid.

9:35p Senate race in trouble unless Brown can pull off Mass.

9:22p Early good news is that the House of Representatives will stay Republican – Senate still up-in-the-air, but likely to remain Democrat-controlled

6:19p Romney: “I only wrote one speech” – victory or bust for the Romney campaign!

6:17p Ohio voters: Things getting better 37%, things getting worse 33%, things not changing 29% – not good news for an incumbent if voters want change.

6:05p Exit polls showing more Republican electorate than in 2008 – Gallup was right – the D+7 turnout model looks flawed – looks good for Romney-Ryan

6:02p National exit polls 46% say we are heading in the right direction, 52% wrong. Ohio: working class white voters going for Romney, government workers for Romney 51%-48%

5:59p As we approach the first poll closings, thought I’d share my predictions for the electoral map ( so you can all laugh when I’m wrong):
