12:44p Romney to make speech within the hour
12:13a Obama wins. The people lose. We have to re-energize to fight for the Senate in 2014.
11:57p No tweets or FB posts from Romney campaign for awhile…
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.
11:26p Only 911 votes separate Obama and Romney in Ohio. We still think Fox called Ohio too fast.
11:23p Although the MSM is calling Ohio for Obama, we’re not there yet.
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
9:11p Fleischer tells us how VA results are looking good for Romney – I only need a few more precincts to call VA
9:09p Florida much closer than I expected.
8:57p Sean Spicer tells us that the GOP picked up a house seat in Kentucky
8:36p Fleischer thinks exit polls oversample Dems
8:20p Exit polling in Ohio showing near 2008 black vote turnout – could be a problem in that swing state for Romney
7:51p Ari Fleischer talks about exit polling data and young vote in NC
7:50p Wisconsin and Minnesota close next – 10 mins to go
7:38p Vermont exit poll data showing strong liberal Democrat turnout – calling it for Obama
7:29 Ohio, NC and West Virginia just closed
7:23p Florida razor-thin with 8% in
7:09p Paul Ryan tweets about Indiana call
7:08p Florida reports that southern district votes may not be tabulated until tomorrow morning due to high turnout
7:06p Virginia exit polls show close race, but Romney doing well with middle-class and only 8 points down with women
6:50p Polls to close in Georgia, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, parts of Florida, New Hampshire at 7pm
6:49 Exit polls show most voters knew who they would vote for before October
6:42p Continuing to peruse the exit polling data: 34% Conservative, 22% Liberal, 44% Moderate – center-right nation?
6:30p Obama takes 60% of urban vote while Romney takes 60% of rural vote (exit polling data)
6:25 Kentucky going as expected, strong for Romney
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): http://www.conservativedailynews.com/2012/11/even-losing-ohio-romney-wins-election-prediction-map/
5:52p Obama campaign staff in panic mode. Throwing out campaign videos and begging people to vote:
5:48p Romney Press Secretary Andrea Saul tweets that exit polls showing that voters care about what Romney is strong on – the economy:
5:44p RNC Communication Director Sean Spicer tweets about encouraging voter turnout in Colorado – a state CDN predicted Romney would win
5:37p KatlainSmith89 tweets this pic of Virginia Beach, VA polling location line (heavy R district): http://instagram.com/p/Rs9EzEMw1i/
5:18p CDNs prediction for Indiana and Kentucky was for Romney to take both. That would give Romney a 19-0 electoral lead in the first two states to have statewide polls close.
5:07p Redstate reporting that GOP poll watchers are being denied access on a technicality: http://www.redstate.com/2012/11/06/gop-poll-observers-being-blocked-in-north-carolina/
