8PM - The polls have closed in 16 states. Let's go through them.
In Alabama, a strongly Republican state, Schwarzenegger is projected to win
In Connecticut, a fairly safe Democratic state, it was actually close earlier in the campaign, but Obama pulled away, and we are projecting that he will win it.
In Delaware, no suprises here, Obama is projected to win.
In Illinois, Obama's home state, we are projecting that it will vote for it's Senator in this Presidential race.
In Maine, it is too close to call at this time. The polls have showed a very close race there throughout this campaign.
In Maryland, Obama is projected to win, again no suprise.
In Massachusetts, perhaps one of the least suprising projections so far, Obama is projected to carry Massachusetts.
In Michigan, it's too close to call. Schwarzenegger has made some inroads in the last few weeks of this campaign, can he pull off than upset there? We shall see.
In Mississippi, it is too early to call. This does not mean it's going to be close, it means we do not have enough votes to look at yet to make a projection.
In Missouri, it's too close to call. This is no suprise as the polls have been close there for a while.
In New Jersey, it's too close to call. This is a bit of suprise as the polls showed a big lead for Obama, but we are saying it's too close to call.
In New Hampshire, it's also too close to call. Again, no suprise, the polls were close here too.
In Florida, again, it's too close to call. This state of course decided the 2000 Presidential Election.
In Pennsylvania, another one of the real battleground states, it's too close to call.
In Oklahoma, we are projecting to the suprise of no one that Arnold Schwarzenegger will carry it.
In Tennessee, it's too close to call, although the Schwarzenegger campaign team are confident of winning here.
In Virginia, it's too close to call. A Democrat hasn't won this state in the Presidential race since LBJ in 1964.
In Washington DC, the least suprising result of the night so far, Obama is projected to win it.
In Georgia, it's too early to call, again this does not mean it's going to be close, although it could.
In South Carolina, we are projecting that Schwarzenegger will carry it.
And finally, in Vermont, no suprise at all here, Obama is projected to win.
Now let's take a look at the Electoral Map at this hour. The states in blue are Schwarzenegger states, the states in red are Obama states, the states in green are states where the polls have closed, but we are not yet able to make a projection, and the grey states are where the polls are still open.
Schwarzenegger - 48
Obama - 63
The next polls are closing at 8:30PM, in the states of North Carolina and Arkansas. We'll see you after the break on this Election Night 2008.
