That was a hell of a hack piece by Peggy Noonan. No actual substantive reasoning or fact based analysis. "Ignore the massive amounts of polling that has been pretty self-consistent and just look at Mitt! He looks fresh and happy and I just feel good! Can't you feel it? It just totally feels like Romney is going to win. Obama just looks like he is losing and he knows it! Yeah!!!"
I'm predicting Virginia goes blue again.
Also, these exit polls don't include early voting, correct? If that's the case, then they are essentially worthless.
this is the first election I did not have to wait in a line(besides behind my squaw )
I live in a very blue district and the only ones out front were Reps...course nobody sane expects O to win Texas.
going from early reports I think a winner will be called tonight(and fought over tomorrow)

Florida is going Blue, Miami Dade is the only county still mostly incomplete, and it's the biggest and bluest county in FL
Formerly known as "Liberty"
It depends on how many votes are left in Miami Dade. Santa Rosa has 0 reporting, and thats a 100k vote with about 0-30 Romney split I think youre right. But it's still a tad early.

Ooooooh, Karl rove just showed up on fox. I didn't think it was possible, but his jowls have actually gotten bigger. It's like someone took a small face and placed it on top of a larger face.

The soldiers gave three cheers as they urged their tired horses north across the uneven hills. Some of the mounts, exhausted after a week of almost continual marching, began to lag behind; others, spurred on by their enthusiastic riders, began to edge past the regiment's commander. "Boys, hold your horses," Custer cautioned; "there are plenty of them down there for us all."
With VA and FL likely going blue again, my prediction is foiled. Drat. Close to being almost correct.

My prediction 330-203 Obama
Whew just under the wire.
Nate Silver is the only person that might be a bigger winner than Obama tonight. He just solidified a career as the Mel Kiper of the Electoral College.

I just can't get over a take I have, that the way people used those polls in here and "out there" has been an impressive example of confirmation bias at work, and should actually be featured in writings (or added to existing research) on the matter.
"Captain, it's a viewpoint--not one of ours! We're under attack!"
"I see it, ensign! Engage amygdala! Transfer all power from frontal lobes!
Suspend critical thinking field! Go to course heading of reflexive response 101 at full bias!
Now!'Enter' at will!"
