Results coming in, not enough to make predictions

By Tyler Davis

Results are starting to come in. Of the first three states that closed polls, only New Hampshire was considered by pollsters to be a swing state. The other two, Kentucky and Indiana, were expected to go to Mitt Romney, and that’s exactly what happened.

The first big battleground state to begin reporting results is Florida, where polls closed at 6 p.m. CST.

A Romney victory in Florida, which so far isn’t out of the question, would mean a lot. Florida’s 29 electoral votes are among the small handful that are really up for grabs. Those results are already coming in.

According to The Huffington Post’s predictions earlier today, only 66 of the 538 electoral votes are up for grabs.

Virginia’s 13 and Ohio’s 18 electoral votes could also go either way, and precincts there have started to report results.  Until more precincts in these states announce their results, it’s hard to tell which candidate the state is leaning toward.

It’s a little too early for any of these results to mean much, but we will soon start to get an idea of whom our next president might be. Unless of course, an Ohio recount delays official results until December.
