In this case we can easily enough re-do the calculation based on the assumption that there are equal numbers of Democrats and Republicans in the electorate and what we see is that Mitt Romney won a narrow victory with 50 percent of the vote to just under 48 percent for Obama. Not bad!
Dean Chambers has been uncharacteristically silent today... last night he was still holding out for Ohio
from his bunker in Karl Rove Land:
"He's saying the call in Ohio was premature," said Chambers. "I think we should probably see how a lot of these votes go. The bulk of the votes left uncounted could basically cancel out [the result]."
"We really don't know yet, obviously, and no one is claiming victory or conceding from either camp," Chambers added. "These are overly optimistic projections."
projections were overly optimistic...?
