5:39 PM PT (Laura Clawson): We're broadcasting on Daily Kos Radio. Armando, Kagro, Greg Dworkin, and a bunch of other cool people are hanging out over there.

5:38 PM PT:
In 2008, Obama won Florida's Orange County (Orlando) 59-41. Right now, he is winning it... 59-41.

I'm not covering the raw vote counts in these battleground states because they shift based on what reports. I'm more interested in benchmark counties. If we do better in them than 2008, we win.

5:41 PM PT: With 61 percent reporting, Obama is winning Hillsborough County (FL) 52-47. To win Florida, our handy dandy benchmark chart says we must win it ... 52-47.

5:42 PM PT: With Chris Murphy winning in Connecticut, remember this -- Joe Lieberman is officially history. We retired him.

5:45 PM PT: Obama is winning Florida 50.7-48.5 with 34.8 percent in, and no Miami-Dade or Broward in.

5:46 PM PT:
If FL trend holds, Obama squeaks by w/ win. Best case for Romney narrow win, which does not bode well for Romney elsewhere.

5:47 PM PT:
FL counties with 100% vote: Lafayette +.6 for O compared to 08; Gilchrist -3.3; Bradford -1. Franklin -1.9; O wins 08 +2.8.

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.
