Carter Picks Up A Little While Reagan Retains Lead
Governor Carter carries Illinois. The state had been leaning in the direction of Carter coming into tonight and now has gone the way of the Georgia Governor.

Jimmy Carter
Illinois 26 electoral votes

A big 26 electoral votes however whose significance it is very possible cannot be denied. Governor Reagan is the winner in Kansas and Nebraska. The lone star state of Texas goes for the Republican nominee.

Ronald Reagan
Kansas 7 electoral votes

Ronald Reagan
Nebraska 5 electoral votes

Ronald Reagan
Texas 26 electoral votes
Carter: 86        Reagan: 164        Thompson: 0        270 to win

I've heard Kentucky might be a bellwhether tonight. Whichever man wins Kentucky

It looks tonight like the Carter candidacy was overestimated before election night tonight.

There is a long way to go.

The signs are pointing to Ronald Reagan. More than likely the California governor will be the next President.

I'll have to stop you because a lot of states Ohio and Tenessee included are outstanding.

Doesn't help Carter that Illinois was not called right away.

It is in the Democratic column.

But it took an hour before there is a projection in the state. That means that the exit polls and information coming out of the state didn't show a wide enough Democrat trend to have Carter carry the state immeaditely as the polls close. 86 is a bad number. The Democrat nominee ought get busy.

Alright. There are some other projections to be made right now. Jimmy Carter carries Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Good

Someone needs to take you out to the wood shed or something. There is a declaration in Maine. Ronald Reagan carries Maine. Reagan also wins according to the information we have when all the votes are counted North Dakota and South Dakota and Wyoming and Colorado and Arizona.

Carter: 107        Reagan: 191        Thompson: 0        270 to win

Panel I was coming to you but there are three more calls that one of which will not make our friend very happy. The first is in Rhode Island.

Jimmy Carter
Rhode Island 4 electoral votes

Really no contest there. Little rhodie goes for Carter.

Jimmy Carter
Vermont 3 electoral votes

Vermont that is a state previously undecided that Democrats can count as a win for the Carter/Brown campaign. And another call. Ronald Reagan carries Kentucky narrowly; it was a close and hard fought contest in the state for much of the campaign but bluegrass country when the votes are counted cast its 9 electoral votes according to the information we have from the state for governor Reagan.

Ronald Reagan
Kentucky 9 electoral votes

Note: With a month to go the opinion polls showed Edwards with a thirty point lead (61-31). The rest being undecided. The Porter campaign invoked operation close the gap and they did with one week left the Edwards lead is cut in half. More or less about two-thirds of the undecided vote goes for Edwards. In the last week the Democrat lead is cut by another six points. Realistically the Republican campaign said if at eight weeks to go instead of four the Edwards lead were thirty Porter could well have won the election nationally. Garrison Porter conceded defeat in Knoxville after 11 o'clock EST saying that "while others would come and pick up the fallen torch the fire will never go out." Observers say Vanessa Hudgens is and was the wrong choice for a running mate. Natalie Portman would have been more effective as the Republican candidate for Vice President.

Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have closed their polls. If you are in line to vote you will be allowed to cast a ballot. There is a national projection right now.

Democrat
House Control

The Democrats will control the House of Representatives in the next congress. They maintain control of the lower chamber of the United States congress by a big majority.

Back to the presidential desk we are calling Senator Humphrey the winner in Illinois and Maryland and Massachusetts and the District of Columbia.


Hubert Humphrey
Illinois 26 electoral votes

Hubert Humphrey
Maryland 10 electoral votes

Hubert Humphrey
Massachusetts 14 electoral votes

Hubert Humphrey
District of Columbia 3 electoral votes

The Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and Republican Nominee for President carries Alabama and Mississippi and Oklahoma.

George Bush
Alabama 9 electoral votes

George Bush
Mississippi 7 electoral votes

George Bush
Oklahoma 8 electoral votes

Lets move on to the balance of power in the Senate; what it looks like at this hour. Nine of the states that have just closed their polls are considered undecided right now.
Humphrey: 62        Bush: 57        270 to win

Hubert Humphrey vs George Bush
President of the United States of America

Democrat: 30        Republican: 48        Independent: 0        51 for overall majority

Republicans are doing rather well in the Senate. They have picked up a few seats. Democrats are pretty much limited to the South right now winning contests in Florida and Tennessee and Mississippi and the gain from an Independent Senator in Virginia. Election 1976 coverage continues after this.

Election 1976 coverage. Polls have closed in two more states. Were going to the panel in a moment. Ohio has their polls closed now and the election race  there between the two major party candidates is undecided at this hour. West Virginia is a different story. Hubert Humphrey will carry West Virginia and its 6 electoral votes when all the votes are counted and verified according to our projection there.

Hubert Humphrey
West Virginia 6 electoral votes

Panel Georgia and Ohio are outstanding. The Bush lead in the electoral college just narrowed six more electoral votes. Any thoughts and or predictions right now?

I think everything is really up in the air right now. The Bush camp is looking right now if I had to guess for Georgia to come in sooner rather than later.

There may well have been some disappointment inside the Republican party tonight that we could not declare Georgia for Bush at the top of the 7 o'clock hour.

More disappointment is present that places like Georgia and North Carolina are not more solid in the Republican camp according to the polls. George Bush needs for those states to be just as solid Republican as is Alabama.

Interesting you say that. Alabama went Democrat the last election after voting pretty overwhelmingly for Barry Goldwater in 1964.

The Democrat nominee for Vice President in 1972 had a lot to do with that.

Coming into tonight the two independent United States Senators were up for reelection. One has already gone down in Virginia and the other is running for reelection and is said to be doing poorly in the polls in New York state.

That's no surprise at all. Its hard enough to get elected as an independent and more difficult to be reelected. A candidate running as an Independent has no base.

In a dream world for an Independent candidate the Republican would get the far right and the Democrat the far left. Thus leaving the Independent candidate with 50 percent and the middle coasting to victory.

But how often does that happen?

Will both Independent seats go to the Democrats?

New York is a better bet for Republicans; maybe the Independent will pull it out. Virginia was widely expected and seems solidly in the column for a Democrat pick up.

Which side Humphrey or Bush is the more confident end tonight?

If George Bush can start to win some of the states deemed undecided in the final opinion poll then he will be President. I would say the Bush camp is confident at this hour.

Thanks panel. 15 states and the District of Columbia are closing their polls when we come back. Get ready some major projections could well be coming up at the top of the 8 o'clock hour. Election '76 coverage continues after this.
