NBC Election night theme: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQIAzjDaZWI

'Welcome to NBC News's coverage of the 2004 US Presidential Election, I'm Brian Williams. The election between President George W. Bush and New York Senator Hillary Clinton is a closely contested race, so let's take a look at the polls and media predictions coming into tonight:

Polls:


"Light blue signifies 'Lean Republican' states, light red signifies 'Lean Democratic' states. The Medium colors represent 'Likely Republican' and 'Likely Democratic' states. The darkest colors are 'Safe Republican' and 'Safe Democratic' states. In the polls, Senator Clinton leads President Bush with 281 Electoral Votes to 257 Electoral Votes."

"Here are some media predictions, starting with our own prediction:"

Clinton: 317
Bush: 221

"Here is CBS New's predictions"

Clinton: 378
Bush: 160

"And Fox New's"

Bush: 277
Clinton: 261

UP NEXT: 7:00 PM POLL CLOSINGS (ALL BASED OFF OF 270TOWIN.COM CLOSING TIMES)

Bill Clinton helped her a lot in the states he won in '92 and '96 which helped her gain followers in not just Louisiana and Montana but also Missouri and Tennessee.

"Ok, here we go. At 7 PM, we can make our first projections of the night:

NBC News can now project that President Bush will win the states of Indiana worth 11 Electoral Votes, Kentucky worth 8 Electoral Votes and South Carolina, also worth 8 Electoral Votes. We can call the state of Vermont for Senator Clinton, worth 3 Electoral Votes. The states of Georgia and Virginia are too close to call.

Current Map:


Bush: 27
Clinton: 3
Too Close to Call: 28

"Now at 7:30 we now have polls in from North Carolina, Ohio and West Virginia. We can call West Virginia for President Bush. North Carolina and Ohio are too close to call. We can now also call Georgia for President Bush. Virginia is still too close to call"

Current Map:


Bush: 47
Clinton: 3
Too Close to Call: 48

UP NEXT: 8:00 and 8:30 poll closings

"It's now 8:00 and we have results from many states. Because there is so many, we are introducing green for Too Early To Call, and keeping yellow as too close to call."

"Here we go.

We can call the states of Alabama worth 9 Electoral Votes, Mississippi worth 6 Electoral Votes, and Oklahoma worth 7 Electoral Votes for President Bush.

We can call the states of Connecticut worth 7 Electoral Votes, Delaware worth 3, Illinois worth 21, Maine and it's 1st Congressional district worth a total of 3 Electoral Votes, Maryland worth 10, Massachusetts worth 12, New Jersey worth 15, Rhode Island worth 4 and Washington D.C. worth 3 for Senator Clinton.

The states of Florida and New Hampshire are too close to call, the states of Missouri, Maine's 2nd Congressional and Pennsylvania are too early to call.

We can also call the state of Virginia for President Bush."

Current Map:


8:30 PM

"We have one poll closing from the state of Arkansas, which we will classify as too close to call. We can also now classify Missouri and Pennsylvania as too close to call, no longer too early. We can also call Maine's 2nd for Senator Clinton."

Current Map:

Clinton: 82
Bush: 82
Too Close To Call: 104

8:47

"We can now call the state of Arkansas for Senator Clinton, carrying that state in which she was once the First Lady"

"We would like to welcome in Senator Clinton's running mate, Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa here tonight in New York City. Tom, how have your expectations panned out so far."

"Well Brian, we did not expect to win Arkansas, so that's a big plus for our campaign"

"At the 9:00 poll closings, how do you expect to do?"

"Great."

"Well thank you Tom, and good luck tonight"

"Thanks for having me Brian"

I am skeptical of Bush's chances to pull this one out. If he wins the rest of the interior West (MT, ID, NV, CO) along with AK, NH, OH, LA, TN, and FL, he will still only be at 266 EV, meaning that he will either have to win one of WI/MI/PA or break Clinton's MIMAL chain (presumably by winning MO or IA). Both are hard to accomplish, and this assumes that he wins all the previously mentioned states. I predict a Clinton victory.

Rachel Maddow: "I really see no way of Bush winning tonight. Unless he can carry almost every state left, including the rest of Clinton's MIMAL chain-"

Maddow: Wow.


Clinton: 232
Bush: 218

We also have a major projection: the state of Pennsylvania will go to Senator Clinton, as will the state of Iowa. We can also say that President Bush is the ''apparent winner'' in the state of Wisconsin."

2:09 AM

"We can now project that President Bush will win the state of Florida, meaning that this election will go down to the state of Ohio."


Clinton: 260
Bush: 258

"We now take a live look at Bush's campaign headquarters in Dallas, Texas. The supporters have just gotten the news that Florida has been called for Bush, meaning that the state of Ohio, won by bush in 2000, is all that's left."



"With 98% in, Ohio is led by President Bush by about 607 votes. This is looking like this may turn into 2000 in Florida all over again."

The Bush campaign claim was not taken seriously, and the Ohio Secretary of State did a recount and declared Clinton the winner, meaning she wins the presidency.
