It looks like Obama's catching up rather fast on the popular vote as well.

well so did msnbc, and they are already celebrating in Chicago

besides, if fox and msnbc come to the same conclusion on something...
Either nobody's denying a fact, people are jumping the gun to the same conclusion, or somebody slipped pcp into my cola...

also I think Fox is not willing to get burned if they scream Romney's victory from the rooftops and ohio doesn't flip in the next half hour, let alone if florda falls on obama's side of the line.
Also my state went blue, as did most of the eastern seaboard where sandy hit, Mc. Cain was a native son culturally, romney was a govoner here, but nobody liked his job.

If ohio comes down to a recount, which it still can, and the rest of the election was real close, there will be rage and riots, but I don't think that will happen.

Nebraska (and Maine) uses the Congressional District Method, instead of the "Winner take all" method used in every other state. Although they have never split their vote, it is possible.

Yes.  Nebraska is one of two states that has the option to split their electoral votes, and is the only state to have ever done so (split between McCain and Obama in the last election.)

I was actually torn between McCain and Obama last election, then Palin opened her mouth, admitidly Biden is still a dumbass at times, but he's not a double high authoritan, people are willing to tell him to shhhh, and moreover he's willing to talk his ideas over, and bite his tounge.

Politico still has Nevada as 'Incomplete', but they've declared Wisconsin for Obama.  Even if Florida and Virginia both flip back to Romney, it's not enough.

Correction.  Politico just declared Nevada.  Now, even if Ohio was flipped back (the popular vote is still fluxing) it's still over 270.

Well, I guess in the end, Ann Coulter was right about this election, assuming that Romney is a big enough boy to admit he's lost and not challenge the rulings of the voting process.

To inform those in the dark - back when the Repubs were trying to pull everyone in, Coulter went on record saying that if they couldn't convince Chris Christie (gov of NJ) to run, then Romney would gain the nomination and lose.

Now, I'm not a Democrat, but thank GOD that they won.  Maybe the Repubs will stop all this SuperPAC/Corporations are people/Money is Free Speech (NO IT'S NOT YOU DICKHEADS!)/Corporate Favortism bullshit.

And really they shouldn't have expected to win.  You've got Romney's 47% comment, you've got Mike Turzai on record openly admitting to try and swing PA to the ex-Gov.  I talked to one of my more political friends the other day, and made the comment that if this had been back in 2000, coming off Clinton, if Romney had made as many mistakes as he had during this campaign, he would've been laughed out of the race.

The fact that this was a close race...shouldn't have been.  Part of me is convinced that half the people voting against Obama didn't do so because of his 'failed policies' (BTW, Repubs, even FDR took more than a term to bring the country out of the Depression), but because 'there's no way in hell I'm voting for that damn n*****.'

No offense meant to anyone present.  I don't believe in that sort of thing.

And now Fox is talking about if this election means that all elections from now on are going to be negative because Mitt's positive and upbeat campaign didn't work...



The mental disconnect is...STUNNING.

Anyone want to remind him about W. losing the popular vote in 2000 by a larger margin?


I break into giggles whenever I see a picture of Donald Trump. I don't know why, I can't help it.

Romney's still refusing to concede.  Bet he wants a recount.

And Glenn Beck said that the nation must be destroyed if Obama gets re-elected.

I'm kind of scared now.  The Republicans and Tea Partiers were really crazy these past years.  I'm worried that some nut or group of nuts are going to do something stupid and desperate.

Of course he does, because he can't accept the fact that, you know, he might have actually lost against the "secret Muslim from Kenya".

And Glenn Beck said that the nation must be destroyed if Obama gets re-elected.

I'm kind of scared now.  The Republicans and Tea Partiers were really crazy these past years.  I'm worried that some nut or group of nuts are going to do something stupid and desperate.

I'm not.  Guys like Beck and the Republicans - while highly placed - are still just cogs in the machine.  If they end up trying that mentioned something stupid, the voters will see them for what they are and they'll lose the next election.

No, if they really want to have a chance again in 2016 to win, it'll be business as usual.


And no, Callie, that was not a joke.  Daily Show covered a clip of her, on-camera, saying it.

Hmmm...now the popular vote count seems to be swinging toward Obama.

I almost wanted it to be Electoral for Obama and Popular for Mitt....just to see if Republicans went Anti-Electoral like Dems did before.

Would have been amusing.

Nope.  Appears she's actually not a demon from the Tenth Circle of Hell, she's just human like the rest of her idiotic brethren.
