Someone on ABC was just like "Mitt Romney was governor of the state next door to New Hampshire."

These people have literally nothing to say.

well the MA senate seat is being called for Democrat Elizabeth Warren which is a great piece of news.
it gave me shivers that a republican had Ted Kennedy's senate seat for 2 years.

seems like things are starting to lean towards the POOTUS (i love that term Tofulish!) but i think it's waaaaaaay too early to call anything.

I dislike living in very red Indiana for a number of reasons, but holy balls, we got our shiitake together and elected Donnelly. Also, Warren wins in Massachusetts! I'm feeling cautiously optimistic, but that's probably because I'm watching MSNBC.

Looking forward to PROTUS. PROTUS sounds cool, like some kind of robot comprised of small robots. POOTUS just sounds like someone farting in Latin.

We're switching between CBS, MSNBC, Fox, and local news. So weird to see the different projections. I'm tempted to go to bed right now...streeessssss

Ha, same. This surprised me a little. It was so close!

I have four maps open. I don't even know what is happening.

Question 6 (same sex marriage) in MD is doing well. Maine also seems to be doing well on their same sex marriage initiative. Early results for Minnesota, not so good.

Can somebody explain how they "call" certain states if only 7% of the votes are in? Isn't that still a lot of votes that could change things?

i dont know how they are calling it with it so close and so many towns not reporting but she is definitely ahead.
its interesting to look at the map on boston.com because it make a lot of sense to me why i was confused when i heard Warren was in the lead during the race.
everywhere were i live (Marlboro) it's 97% Brown signs. i figured most of her followers must be in Boston and the surrounding area and that appears to be what the map on boston.com reflects. also a good chunk in western MA for her.

The senate results are looking great so far!

Yes! For the first time tonight, Kaine is ahead. By about .2%

Fairfax might just save us all.

i just pounded some tums. i think im gonna have a nervous breakdown.


Speaking as somebody that grew up in Florida, I'd say half of Florida is people that moved from red states and half of Florida is people that moved from blue states, so it's no wonder things are a mess down there.

i dont understand this either but im guessing some states just ALWAYS go a certain way.
MA ALWAYS votes for a democratic president so i guess they consider it ok to call it stoopidly early.

It is the same way they call states as soon as their polls close. They know generally which districts/counties will go to which candidate. Now there is a possibility that something could be skewed incredibly but basically they are using historical data for the states and counties. Once the vote is tipped enough one way or another, they feel safe enough to say that no matter how the remaining areas vote, the state will still go to the candidate.

Yeah I live on the south shore which- even for the presidential race- is more of a red area, so it was the same for me.

oh boy!

actually we got some really weird very aggressive religious propaganda in our mailbox today with weird cartoons of people being shoved off a cliff into hell.
basically it said i was going to die any moment now and if i didnt accept Jesus into my life i was going straight to hell to burn.

geesh!

I'm thrilled to hear about the (projected) defeats of Akin, Mourdock, Brown, and my state's personal embarrassment, Joe Walsh. I really feel like sanity is prevailing in those races.

NBC News is quoting Lindsey Graham as saying that Romney isn't losing minority votes because he's not conservative enough, but because he's too conservative. The finger pointing begins!

here it was ALL Brown signs and different local elections.

almost no pres signs. the few pres signs are mainly Romney and 1-2 Obama. it was almost like the only thing going on around here was the senate race and the majority of signs were for Brown.

made me feel like i was living on a differnet planet rather than in MA.

I kind of want to read a little and go to bed but if I do, I'm scared the country will let me down.

Oh side note... When I was in a first grade classroom checking on some of my special ed students this morning, the classroom teacher was teaching about the election using a Time for Kids magazine. The magazine described Obama as the current president who would like to be president again and Romney as somebody that thinks he can do a better job than Obama and would also like to be president. One of the first grade girls says "Yeah Romney says he wants to be president, but doesn't seem to want to tell anyone what his plan is if he is elected" The teacher then asked the kids what they would do if they were president. I was waiting for the "no homework", "more recess" etc responses instead the first few comments were: "people that have more money should pay more taxes and those that don't have much money should pay less taxes"; "we should help people get to see doctors whenever they need to instead of worrying about money for doctors"; "we should give more money to people that help other people like policemen and our troops" So interesting what these little kids pick up from their parents. Okay sorry back to results

We are only about 15% reported and it keeps flipping. Same with the Baldwin/Thompson Senate race. Nerve wracking....
