Countdown to Change in America

This blog will automatically update itself as election results are released.

I'll do a little live blogging in the comments section. Reader comments and responses are welcome.

Hat Tip to Songbird at the Reflectionary blog for posting the widget for the election results.

Five minutes until polls close in Oklahoma and already Kentucky and South Carolina are being tallied in McCain's column.

Either Oklahoma or Utah are projected as the states with the strongest support for McCain.

Let's get all the support for McCain out early. Let him sprint ahead at the beginning and fade at the end.

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

CNN just projected Oklahoma and Tennessee for McCain.

They have projected 8 states for Obama.

Obama pulls away!

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

At 8:00 NBC is projecting 175 electoral votes for Obama and 70 electoral votes for McCain.

The split is North vs. South.

Pennsylvania has been projected for Obama and Florida has Obama ahead.

It's looking good for Obama!

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

8:10 and central states in the North are beginning to be projected for McCain.

Florida, however, is close to be called for Obama.

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

8:25 and ABC is projecting that Obama will win Ohio.

That, coupled with his loss of Pennsylvania, makes it exceedingly unlikely that McCain will be win the election.

Ohio is the bell weather state, Repubs don't win without it. Nice to know homeland security wasn't called out to steal it this time.

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

10:00 and CNN projects that Obama will take Virginia.

Florida and North Carolina are still too close to call.

CNN is now projecting that Obama will be elected the President of the United States!

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

ABC, NBC and CBS have all projected that Obama will be the next President of the United States.

Dr. Bruce Prescott said...

McCain is conceding.

The election is over.
