I don't understand the focus on Obama's 'ground game'. I'd think everyone was hooked into media - perhaps it's just about convincing the right people to show up at the polls?

Basically the candidates just have to motivate their base enough to show up to vote. Most people know which party they'll support long before the campaign begins.

I cannot believe that the talking heads on ABC are talking about how "ominous" it is that the country is becoming less white. Unsurprisingly, nearly everyone who has been on tonight is white. Rolling Eyes

Wow, CNN is really trying to pick up the ratings. Laughing They just called the entire West Coast for Obama before the polls are even closed or anything has been reported. It's a safe bet, but still. Rolling Eyes

I figured that if the most famous cable channel in the world is doing, why the hell shouldn't I? Very Happy

EDIT: I might have been looking at the wrong page on CNN's website ... I blame lack of caffeine. Razz

From George Takei: "This just in: Apple Maps projects Obama to win Chile."

Hawaii also called for Obama, earlier than I expected.

Taking Oregon off the Obama column for now due to my mistake earlier. California and Washington still being reported as called.

Idaho called for Romney as well. Iowa and finally Oregon called for Obama.

This will come down to Ohio, Florida, and Virginia as was expected.

The numbers didn't lie, but I still have a big grin on my face. I have more than my fair share of reservations about Obama but I am very happy that he beat Romney. I'm also glad that this didn't come down to counting a few hundred votes in Florida given Obama's surprising lead in Ohio. Very Happy

Too tired to say much more but I had a blast following all the news here. Thanks for humoring me and my incessant map posting. Smile

Romney apparently is reluctant to concede but when FOX is calling against a Republican before midnight on election night, you know you've lost. Badly. lol!

I wouldn't say Romney lost badly, though I'm very curious to see the final popular vote. I think it's just the quirkiness of the electoral college system that let it be called so early.
