3:31 PM PT: What, is it election night already?

Just kidding. It's about fucking time. So hey, those of you who want to play the "benchmark counties" game, this is pretty freakin' awesome.

3:34 PM PT: Those of you worrying about voter fraud, just stop it. Please. Dems are voting in massive numbers, glitches are happening here and there, but Democrats have done a good job in squashing most (though certainly not all) efforts in the courts.

More Republicans are voting as well, so let's not kid ourselves that any excitement is just on our side. But if we match 2008 turnout models, we win. And so far, not only are we matching, but we're exceeding it in many key places. We're fine. Even if the GOP had the ability to steal this election, it won't be close enough to do so.

3:35 PM PT:
With 43,000 ballots counted, the Libertarian candidate is on top of 5% in #INSen. If that holds, it has to help Donnelly.

3:42 PM PT:
Alex Castellanos looked defeated on CNN just now when talking about the exit polls. Said they must be wrong. Ouch.

They've been wrong before, so no premature celebration. Except that there really isn't much drama about the toplines.

3:44 PM PT: Daily Kos radio will be broadcasting all night -- join Armando, Kagro, Greg Dworkin and a rotating cast of guests as they cover the election results. Click on link for details.

3:44 PM PT: CNN reporting that ROMNEY'S last internal tracking poll from Ohio had them losing.

3:46 PM PT: Those Romney internals had Obama up five in Ohio. Same as all the public polling. Now I'm wondering if my O+5 Ohio prediction was too pessimistic.

3:49 PM PT (Barbara Morrill): New thread here.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
