The Iconic Clash: Obama/Biden vs. Palin/Pence

7:00

Good Evening America and the polls have closed. The campaigns of Pres. Obama and former Governor Sarah Palin await the results. We can project based on exit polling and what data we received that the states of Indiana, Vermont and Virginia will be going for the President this evening. As for Gov. Palin we can project the state of Kentucky.



7:30
More states polls have closed and we can project the state of West Virginia for Gov. Palin.

7:45
We can now make a projection that Pres. Obama will carry the state of Georgia.

D: 43
R: 13

8:00
The top of the hour and we have more states to call for the President: The states of: Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Maryland, Delaware and The District of Columbia.
As for Gov. Palin we can project the states of Mississippi, Alabama and Oklahoma for her.



We can also project that Pres. Obama will carry the state of Ohio by a margin of: 52%-46%. Also we have a winner in a key senate race we've been following. Scott Brown has beaten challenger Barney Frank by a large margin: 57%-40%. Also in the state of New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch has been reelected to a fifth term, defeating Executive Councilor Chris Sununu, 54%-45%.

9:00
Top of the hour once again and we can project the states of: Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, New York.
For Gov. Palin we project the states of: Louisiana, Kansas, Wyoming, and Nebraska, but we are only awarding two of the three districts to her.



D: 251
R:   56

We still have a handful of states that we are unable to call: The state of Florida and North Carolina are extremely close, with Pres. Obama leading narrowly in both states. As well as in the states of Missouri, Texas and Arkansas and Tennessee.
We can also project that Rep. Gabby Giffords has won her senate race in Arizona, beating our Ben Quyale.

9:20
We have a major projection to make in the state of Missouri. We can call it for Pres. Obama by a margin of: 50.1%-48.4%.
In state of Florida, Pres. Obama holds a razor thin lead over Gov. Palin of: 50.0%-49.0%. This was the state of the GOP Convention, so the Republicans are holding out hope in this state, but looking at the states carried by the President the feeling must be somber at the Palin campaign in Arizona.

Despite her establishing a headquarters and making Arizona her home state she was not able to carry the traditionally Republican state which vote for a Democrat only once in the last twenty years and that was for Bill Clinton in 1996, so this certainly does not reflect well for Gov. Palin nationally.

9:30
We just getting word from the AP News that the state of Florida has gone for Obama, and thus the Presidency. Pres. Obama has been reelected to a second term, he has defeated Sarah Palin.



D: 290
R:   56

Now that Pres. Obama has been reelected the question remains how big a mandate he is to receive, given the states still outstanding. However, it appears we can also project him the winner in the state of North Carolina, as well as in the state of Tennessee which hasn't vote for a Democrat since Bill Clinton.

10:00
More states to call, the states: Iowa, Nevada and Montana are going for the President, while Utah remains undecided which is very shocking.

10:10
We can now put a state up on the board for Gov. Palin in South Dakota, she takes it, albeit narrowly from Pres. Obama.

10:30
We're back and with another state to call for Pres. Obama and that is the state of South Carolina. This is a state that President had on his sights and he takes it tonight. With out a doubt this a landslide reelection for the President, just judging by the margins and the states carried thus far.

We are getting word now that Gov. Palin will be conceding at 11:30 eastern standard time, with the President looking to speak sometime after midnight on the east coast.

11:00
More states for the President at this hour. California, Oregon, Washington and Hawaii for the President and the state of Idaho for Gov. Palin.



D: 418
R:   63

We can also call at this hour the state of Arkansas for Gov. Palin, by a margin of 49.4%-48.6%.

11:45
Gov. Palin has finished her concession speech, it was very brief, but sincere where she wished the President well and that "America is a nation that is bigger than one party and politics and that we will all go on."

Also during her speech we've projected the state of North Dakota for President Obama. 51.1%-47.4%

1:00
President Obama has pulled a stunning upset over Sarah Palin in the state of Alaska, the state in which she served as a Governor.

Final Results:



D: 463: 57.9%
R:   75: 40.6%

I disagree. I don't think Palin, Bachmann, or Gingrich could carry it.

Just because you're a Mitt Romney fan doesn't mean that every other potential candidate loses by a landslide by default.

I agree with the previous post regarding South Dakota falling to Obama in this scenario. With Utah as close as it is posting here, Idaho would likely be a point or two closer then that. Obama would likely win the Boise area over Palin and parts of Northern Idaho...which along with Utah has not voted democratic since 1964.

Idaho 51/48 Palin?
South Dakota 49/49 Obama?

You seriously think Michele Bachmann or Sarah Palin could win Indiana?

Bachamann and Palin can.
Paul would
Cain would (and would sway a lot of African-American voters too)
Daniels and Pence would lock it via favorite son
Pawlenty would
Mitt would not

Paul would
Cain would (and would sway a lot of African-American voters too)
Daniels and Pence would lock it via favorite son
Pawlenty would
Mitt would not
Bachmann and Palin would decimate turnout among moderate Republicans and push pretty much all independents towards Obama.
Cain would get African-American votes? How many votes did the GOP get with Michael Steele as RNC chairman?
Daniels, yes.
Pence, probably but you have to consider his extreme views.
Pawlenty and Mitt probably would.

I dont mean to seem like Im trolling, cause Im not, but youare so far to the right it is funny. Palin is a disgrace to the Republican party. I think this map is even too lienient on her. I HOPE she does win the nomination just to show you how out of touch you are with every other moderate american out there. Not every one is a tea party loving, Obama bashing ultra conservative.
