Watching the news, I have seen reports that the exit polls have been showing a Kerry landslide. I have two thoughts on this:
1. Are these polls being conducted in big cities? Hello! We all know that Bush's support comes from the smaller towns and rural areas, not the Upper West Side or downtown Seattle or Michigan Avenue.
2. I expect to see a shift to Bush as the people who have jobs finish work and vote. As I type this, it's a little after 6 PM Eastern time, so the people in the midwest are just getting off of work, and the people in the Mountain and Pacific zones are still working.
We'll know by tomorrow morning whether or not Kerry won; we'll simply need to look at the number of lawsuits filed. If it's low, Kerry won. If it's astronomical, then Bush won.

I think We'll know tonight. At 10:30 eastern, the numbers from FL and OH are shaping up fairly solidly, and the upper midwest looks to be trending Bush.
MSM still treating OH and FL as radioactive.
Really, really obvious FL2K syndrome. The MSM folks probably wish they had Radiation Suits to cover those two states. They aren't going to call them till some chick over 450 lbs starts doing some karaoke.
