    Hi Folks,
    The first polls will begin to close shortly. In an effort to keep things centralized and avoid a bunch of threads about the same subject, please post comments on the subject in this thread. Others will be merged into this one. So please save everyone the trouble and keep it here. Also, I am sure there will be plenty of emotional content in here. Please keep things civilized, the Mods would rather not have to hand out warnings and infractions.

    -The House of Politics staff

    So far it seems to break down with McCain winning Kentucky and West Virginia, Obama taking Vermont. So far no surprises.

    it surprises me that it hasn't been a land slide yet as they had polled. There are a bunch of states too close to call....

    CNN as well yet there are 0 precincts reporting there...I'm thinking we'll have a better idea (and the rhetoric will get stronger) around 10-10:30-11

    Democrats now have to run the table on Senate elections to get above the 60 mark.

    Your link shows 15 seats undecided.... where are you getting 1 more state from?

    It shows (with projected wins) a total of 52 seats. You need 60 to be filibuster proof. You will have to win the remainder of the close toss ups. It is not undoable, but it is a challenge.

    Barring some miracle (such as California going red) you are correct I would say.

    The Senate races are the big story now. Getting 60 is still a tall order.
