Election Night

12:51pm – Fox has announced Ohio for Bush. Kerry is 140,000 votes behind. It’s pretty much all over. I don’t know what to say.

8:14pm – CNN and MSNBC reporting:
Kerry: Mass., Conn., NJ, Del., MD, DC, Ill. (77)
Bush: Okla., Ga., Tenn., KY, WV, Ind. (66)

7:53pm – With 61.5 percent reporting in Kentucky the democratic senate candidate Daniel Mongiardo is up on Jim Bunning, the incumbent.

I think I’m going to try to get some updates in during the evening while we wait to see who our next president will be.

First off, Zogby has projected Kerry winning the election with 311 electoral votes to Bush’s 213. It’s a poll of 955 likely voters with a margin of error of +/-3.2. It’s not a huge group and it’s a fairly high MOE, but here’s to hoping Zogby’s correct.

Here are the Wonkette exit poll numbers
