Rather Late start to US Election Live Blog

03:36 Apparently Massachusetts and Michigan have approved decriminalising cannabis.

03:31 Remember that Republican who said Obama was unAmerican and called for an investigation and her Dem opponent then raised $1.3million in a week? She is 5% ahead with 24% of precincts in.

03:29 I was talking bollocks about Virginia at 03:21 - I got it mixed up with West Virginia........

03:24 Gap widens in Virginia - now 39000.

03:23 - Nick Robinson just made a point about US electing a novice........

03:21 - my Virginia obsession continues. The highest Democrat vote in recent history was Clinton's 41% 12 years ago. For Obama to come so close - and he may yet win - is good.

03:17 - is Missouri going to get it wrong for the first time in ages. McCain ahead there....... Colorado still looking good. Obama 7% ahead with 16% in.

03:11 I'm getting obsessed with Virginia - now 30,000 votes in it in Obama's favour. If he wins that, then maybe I'll be convinced......

03:04 - Only 12000 votes in it in Virginia - Obama ahead - that's close
02:50 - early days, but Obama 9% ahead in Colorado according to CNN. They've only just really started though and we don't know where the 8% they've counted are....

02:38 Obama projected to take New Mexico - a gain from last time. McCain needed that one. Time for another cup of tea and some chocolate....

02:35 Virginia now 50% each with 72% of precincts in according to CNN............

02:24 - Dimblebore is now saying that Obama has won Ohio. Surely the Beeb can't get it wrong........

02:05 If Fox News is saying that Obama has won Ohio, this has to be very good news indeed..... Would prefer it had come from a more reputable source, though.

02:11 Virginia, hmmm - McCain ahead according to CNN after 60% of precincts in, maybe not so good. Should not have said anything positive about the results. Now having a mild flutter of anxiety.

More significant is that Fox is admitting that Obama has won the state far earlier than it needs to...

I just wish Dimblebore would stop going on as if it's a done deal.

I want to see firm voting figures, not just projections.

I agree - projections are far too woolly for my liking!

Malc said...

Think its over though - projections or not!

Caron said...

Hope so. Virginia is fascinating, though...........
