Great News For McCain! – Maybe Not

Published by at 9:06 pm under 2008 Elections,All General Discussions

PA too close to call – McCain is very much alive. What worries me is FL and IN. Would like to see those go McCain.

Update: Some networks called PA based on exit polls alone – but Fox News notes there are ZERO election results to make any assessment. It is now up to our PUMA allies to bring in OH and PA.

Florida is really too close, which is worrisome. 

And of course it is disheartening to watch GOP moderate senators fall (Dole and Sununu).

Update: CNN and Fox News just called PA. I know this is heavily reliant on exit polls. If this is a 2000 rerun then we would see it here. Let’s see how it goes and if it holds up.

    ABC and NBC have both called PA for Obama

  2. crosspatch says:

    NBC clearly said their call for Obama was based on exit polls. It wasn’t based on any actual vote counts.

    Mc still leading by 10% in VA that is a swing of 16% from the final poll avg on Pollster

  4. CatoRenasci says:

    So much for nominating a moderate RINO

  5. MerlinOS2 says:

    Va closing due to hitting some Obama favorable areas
    Mc 935k O 903k

  6. crosspatch says:

    I am having problems with Fox’s automatic mouse-over flash map. The vote counts keep going up and down. I can’t make heads or tails of it from one minute to the next.

  7. MerlinOS2 says:

    Fox total fubar for me

    Va almost dead heat now

  8. crosspatch says:

    And what numbers Fox has is completely different than what the Ohio state government is reporting. I know there might be some lag, but a 10 point difference with only a 3% difference in precincts?

    I have to wonder where Fox is getting their numbers from.

  9. MerlinOS2 says:

    According to pollster Ohio called by all networks

    If they are correct with CA, OR, and WA BHO wins

    I just question the numbers in a whole bunch of the states since they vary so much from net to net and from the state sites

    Also the polls are looking to be totally wrong if you look at final poll tends and projected results on Pollster

    Penn for example had polls +7.2 and projected +15 win for BHO

    Some Conclusions: We live in a country filled with people who would rather feel good and get stuff than live free; our fight has just begun; even assuming the loss, the polls were embarrassingly wrong; the media has sold it’s soul and has zero credibility; and Republicans everywhere need to realize that if the MSM likes your candidate (McCain) then he is probably not a good choice for our party.

    Personally, I long to live in a country where knowingly violating election laws or threatening the free elections of our country are treated as treason.
