I'M FREAKING OUT OVER HERE

All the early exit polls looked good. Why do OH and FL now look so bad?

At least we got PA. Other swing states are too early to tell. I'm too freaked to try to do the math based on how they look right now, and electoral-vote.com doesn't appear to be updating.

Florida

CNN reports Bush ahead 52%-47% with 97% of precincts reporting. Does anyone know if that includes the early votes as well? (I'm assuming it doesn't include absentee ballots.)

sigh

Not looking good. OH does seem to be getting a bit closer (Kerry is behind by 100K right now; it was closer to 150K last time I looked, I think), but that still seems like a pretty big gap to close. I don't know what the absentee/provisional ballot situation is like there, though.

Time to stop hitting refresh on the CNN site and go to bed.
