Final Opinion Poll(Porter+4)
Gavin Newsom/John Kennedy 46%
Garrison Porter/Natalie Portman 50%
Undecided 4%
7 o'clock EST
The polls have closed in six states. At this hour the Porter camp says they are confident they have won. The Newsom camp is waiting. But sheer confidence coming out of the Republicans. It may be they know something we do not.
Newsom: 0        Porter: 32        Undecided        270 to win
A new graphic on the electoral map tonight. In a state where the polls have closed but we cannot make a projection that state is colored yellow. The states in gray people are still voting. Panel the confidence must be in the Republicans that they feel like Garrison Porter and Natalie Portman have won by a bigger margin than the poll predicted.

Or that they have just won to begin with. We don't know a lot at this hour in terms of votes won. The Porter/Portman camp seems to be doing fine. If it were a sweep and a blowout Garrison Porter would have carried all six of the states that have just closed immediately at 7 o'clock. Winning 2 to 1 nationally was historic.

They may still carry Vermont and Kentucky and Georgia. Those states are undecided at this hour.

8 o'clock EST
Newsom: 12        Porter: 77        Undecided        270 to win
Garrison Porter in the lead still at this early hour. Maine is not colored in. Only a red and blue and gray graphic are available for Maine. Maine is undecided at this hour. We would color it in yellow if we could but we cannot.

Its pretty much what you would expect. Many of the traditional battle ground states are undecided as the polls close there.

Some trends are building tonight. Arkansas is good news for Garrison Porter. North Carolina added to the undecided column.

Another election '48 coverage update. Wisconsin and Michigan have both gone to Richard Nixon. Minnesota is too close to call. Texas is also not called at this hour but we can indicate a lead for Joseph Kennedy in Texas.

Richard Nixon
Wisconsin 12 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
Michigan 19 electoral votes
Kennedy: 0        Nixon: 322        Thurmond: 58        266 to win

Arizona also goes for Nixon

Richard Nixon
Arizona 4 electoral votes

Panel a pretty bad night for the Democrats tonight?

A pretty bad night for ambassador Kennedy certainly. The rest of the Democrats will be seen when the results for the balance of power in both houses of congress come out.

Was tonight expected to be a Nixon blowout the likes of what it was becoming?

The two options really were either an election where no nominee takes 266 electoral votes and the election goes to the house. The other option was for Nixon to win outright. A scenario where either of the other two gentlemen win outright seemed unlikely but mathematically possible.

Okay thanks panel. We have a few other projections to make right now. Some more states have just closed their polls. Ambassador Kennedy is the winner in Texas. His first electoral votes of the night. Richard Nixon is the winner in Montana. He also carries Iowa big.


Joseph Kennedy
Texas 23 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
Montana 4 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
Iowa 10 electoral votes

Utah goes for Nixon and Nevada also goes into the Republican column. Nixon carries Nevada.

Richard Nixon

8:30 on the East Coast. Two other states have closed their polls. We have one projection from a state that was previously undecided.

Richard Nixon
Virginia 11 electoral votes

Congressman Nixon is the winner in Virginia. That state had its polls closed for ninety minutes before we could make a projection. That is a state that usually but not always goes to the Democrats in a presidential election. North Carolina is a three way contest at this point that is just too close to call. Arkansas is also undecided. Congressman Nixon carries New York and New Jersey.

Richard Nixon
New York 47 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
New Jersey 16 electoral votes

Congressman Nixon is ever closer to the 266 electoral college votes needed to win. This just in breaking news now. Congressman Nixon is now President elect Nixon.
Nixon Elected; Maryland Puts Him Over The TopMaryland will cast its electoral votes for Richard Nixon and that puts him over the top.

When the votes were counted after election 2016 Hillary Clinton had narrowly been elected President defeating Rand Paul. Democrats won control of the Senate as had been predicted as probable but its likelihood unknown. Kelly Ayotte waited three days before she knew she had won reelection in New Hampshire. Mike Pence after his race being called and then retracted early on lost reelection. He conceded on Thursday November 10th. Baron Hill is the governor elect of Indiana. Mark Kirk and Michael Bennett were both defeated for reelection. Ron Johnson was too. Kamala Harris defeated Angelina Jolie 54-46 in California. Jolie has already shown interest in running for other political offices. It took more than an hour to call Harris the winner in California. Rand Paul turned off key independent voters nationwide in the presidential election.

Not A Lot Of Returns This Morning; Either An Election Going To The House Or A Nixon Win Seem LikelyElection 1948 coverage; there are six states which have just closed their polls. Tonight we will either have the youngest President elect or the first former ambassador to Great Britain elected. It could also be Strom Thurmond President or an election the outcome of which is unknown until the new congress reconvenes in January. In South Carolina Strom Thurmond is the easy winner. The palmedo state goes for Thurmond.

Strom Thurmond
South Carolina 8 electoral votes

Congressman Nixon will carry Indiana very convincingly by about 25 points statewide.

Richard Nixon
Indiana 13 electoral votes

In Virginia the race is undecided between the three candidates. Nixon; no characterization on the situation in Virginia between the three gentlemen seeking the presidency tonight. At least not right now. Senator Thurmond is the winner in Georgia.

Strom Thurmond
Georgia 12 electoral votes

Congressman Nixon carries Kentucky and Vermont. Both rather easily. Kentucky a little closer than Vermont.

Richard Nixon
Kentucky 11 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
Vermont 3 electoral votes
Kennedy: 0        Nixon: 27        Thurmond: 20        266 to win
President Dewey said that he was happy that he was not running this year. He felt like the Republicans would be better at defending the presidency without his name on the ballot we shall see.

I think some readers will be surprised by the 25 point margin in Indiana. They need to remember this is a three way race. Strom Thurmond taking a chunk of the vote everywhere tonight.

Okay we are calling now Congressman Nixon the winner in both Ohio and West Virginia. Two big wins for the Republican.


Richard Nixon
Ohio 25 electoral votes

Richard Nixon
West Virginia 8 electoral votes

The number for the Senate map count may not be exactly right. At the end of the night it will be definitive which party controls the Senate depending on the net gain and net loss acquired. Louisiana and Georgia may go to a run off.

We have no other projections right now. Back with more after this.

Hillary Clinton
Pennsylvania 20 electoral votes
Clinton: 121        Paul: 162        270 to win
Rand Paul carries Texas and Hillary Clinton New York. Two projections that were expected to come and go the way they have tonight. Pennsylvania; Clinton has built a big lead in Philadelphia and in the Philadelphia suburbs. While there are some votes still to come in from more Republican parts of the state it looks like Clinton is doing well enough where she needs to in the state to declare her the winner of Pennsylvania. We can declare Rand Paul the winner in Arizona and Wyoming and North Dakota and South Dakota.

Rand Paul

Welcome back to election 2016 coverage. There are some projections in races that have been decided but not called for the governor seats up tonight. First we are calling Joe Manchin the retiring US Senator from West Virginia the governor elect from West Virginia.

Joe Manchin
West Virginia Governor

Actually only two governor races to call. West Virginia was one. Missouri another. The Republican Catherine Hanaway is the winner there. That will be something that Republicans are excited about. It seems the Paul/Kasich ticket had coat tails in the show me state. Pulling a Republican governor in. The first in eight years there.

Catherine Hanaway
Missouri Governor

The first of any coat tails for the Republicans we have seen tonight. They did not have coat tails in West Virginia where a Democrat will be going to Washington there replacing Senator Manchin who is going to the West Virginia state house. Back to the 'balance of power in the senate.'

We have another call in the senate elections. Richard Burr will be going back to Washington as a Republican in the senate representing North Carolina. Democrats thought earlier they could pose a strong challenge on that seat but Burr maintains his seat pretty effortlessly tonight.


Richard Burr
North Carolina Senator

Panel?

What I think people discover watching that senate seat in North Carolina. Democrats do not have a lot of a bench in North Carolina. There are some Republicans waiting for Senator Burr to retire so that they can run. Republicans have a strong hold on at minimum some of the North Carolina political scene.

There is a governor race in the state that goes uncalled. Democrats have a net gain of one seat in the Senate so far. Now a net gain of two. We are calling Bill Halter the winner in Arkansas. He defeats Jim Holt and replaces retiring John Boozman in the Senate.


Bill Halter
Arkansas Senator

Jim Holt was about the most unelectable Republican the party could put up in Arkansas. Its not known if for example former governor Mike Huckabee would have been elected to the senate this year. Bill Halter is probably the most electable Democrat in Arkansas. The former first lady of Arkansas and wife of governor Huckabee may have been a better candidate than Jim Holt but Halter goes to the Senate representing Arkansas.

That's another pick up for the Democrats. Election 2016 coverage continues after this as approximately a dozen more states close their polls. Back in a moment.

Not as loud as Ohio or Florida.

Gives them something to be excited about right now. More election coverage after this.

Big call in the Indiana governors race. Mike Pence is our projected winner there. 8 o'clock on the East Coast. We can call Hillary Clinton the winner in Maine. All four electoral votes from Maine go for Clinton. Clinton also carries Massachusetts and Connecticut and New Jersey and Maryland and Delaware. She also carries the District of Columbia.

Hillary Clinton
Maine 4 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton
Massachusetts 11 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton
Connecticut 7 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton
New Jersey 14 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton
Maryland 10 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton

Some states we can call for Rand Paul and John Kasich. Alabama and Mississippi both go for Kasich. I mean for Paul. Tennessee and Missouri both go for Paul. The Clinton camp will think something about Missouri. Just what is debatable.

Rand Paul
Alabama 9 electoral votes

Rand Paul
Mississippi 6 electoral votes

Rand Paul
Tennessee 11 electoral votes

Rand Paul
Missouri 10 electoral votes

Senator Paul is also the winner in Nebraska and Kansas and Oklahoma. Pennsylvania among other states remain too close to call. This just in Hillary Clinton carries Illinois. No surprise in the windy city all the way down to the very Southern part of Illinois.

Rand Paul
Nebraska 5 electoral votes

Rand Paul
Kansas 6 electoral votes

Rand Paul
Oklahoma 7 electoral votes

Hillary Clinton
Illinois 20 electoral votes
Clinton: 75        Paul: 103        270 to win
We'll head to the balance of power in the senate before going to a break.

Thanks. We've got some states that have senate races where the polls have just closed. First we are calling Earl Ray Tomblin the Senator from West Virginia. A Democrat holds the seat. The Manchin seat.


Earl Ray Tomblin
West Virginia Senator

Republican Bill Cole we suspect will not be conceding that race for a while. That was the seat Joe Manchin has vacated or is in the process of vacating. He is running for governor tonight. Tomblin can be sworn in before January into that seat. The Clintons will be smiling about that. Were Barbara Mikulski the winner in Maryland. She defeats Ben Carson. Carson a talented physician who has done some very good work in the medical field is unsuccessful tonight in his bid for the Senate in Maryland.

Barbara Mikulski
Maryland Senator

Richard Shelby running unopposed in Alabama wins another term as senator representing Alabama.

Richard Shelby
Alabama Senator

Back to the national desk.

Thanks. Big call there in the West Virginia Senate race. We'll be right back going straight back to the balance of power in the senate after this break.



Bill Clinton was elected in 1992 with 370 electoral votes. Defeating George HW Bush and Ross Perot. Clinton was reelected in 1996 with 379 electoral votes. That time defeating Bob Dole and Ross Perot.

There are a few races that we can call right now. Two more states have closed their polls. Ohio and West Virginia. There are a few races that previously were uncalled. Both in Indiana. Mike Delph

Mike Delph
Indiana Senator

Mike Delph the Republican nominee in the state of Indiana for senate wins his race there. Delph the Republican holds the seat for the party. Dan Coats retiring there. That's a first opportunity missed for Democrats to pick up a senate seat.

Mike Pence
Indiana Governor

Mike Pence the sitting Republican governor is pretty easily reelected in Indiana defeating Baron Hill. West Virginia will cast its electoral votes for Rand Paul. Senator Paul does carry West Virginia tonight.

Rand Paul
West Virginia 5 electoral votes

Ohio is undecided between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul right now. No call in Ohio in the presidential race. The Senate race in the buckeye state also is undecided at this hour between Democrat Richard Cordray and Republican Josh Mandel. Mandel defeated Rob Portman in the Republican primary in Ohio for Senate this year. The Senate race in West Virginia. The race for Seat B in the state is undecided right now.

Coverage continues with 15 states closing their polls. We'll have something to say about some Senate races when we come back.


Hillary Clinton v. Rand Paul
President of the United States of America

Hillary Clinton v. Rand Paul
Ohio 18 electoral votes

Richard Cordray v. Josh Mandel
