What I don't get is how Obama has been declared the winner in Vermont despite the fact no votes have been counted. I mean every poll has him winning in a landslide but shouldn't they count votes first?

McCain is starting to run away with Kentucky, but when CNN declared McCain the winner he was only up like 51-48%

Indiana keeps going back and forth. It was Obama, now McCain... we will see flip flops all night, all over, as the votes come in.

I noticed that, too. Every time I check it's 50-49 one way or the other.

CNN is doing some county-by-county analysis in Indiana. Indianapolis, Bloomington, and Gary/Chicago suburbs aren't in yet. Obama is trailing by 3% despite the fact the Democratic strongholds in Indiana haven't reported.

Something is screwed up already...

FLORIDA:
Obama: 48%
McCain: 34%

So the 3rd party candidates are pulling in 18% Rolling Eyes

They kind of fixed it. It's now 55-36 (91% for Obama/McCain).

NOW it's fixed:

57-43% in favor of Obama with 2% of precincts reporting.

Some votes have been counted in Vermont:
695-328 Obama

Obama was declared the winner a while ago but this is the first time I've seen any votes counted.

How can you declare a winner with less than 1% votes in.

McCain wins S. Carolina (no surprise there) but the votes that have been counted have Obama leading confused I thought you win with the most votes, not second most confused
