    But, be forewarned:
    Don’t get fooled again: Wonkblog’s guide to watching the exit polls

    (Oddly, Team Obama was telling the faithful earlier today not to get too distracted by early exit poll information. Seems a bit contradictory.)

    The embargo (or whatever they are calling it) on Exit Poll details gets lifted at 7:00 (or at least partly lifted at that time).

    Stay tuned.

    Nor should you, for a variety of reasons.

    Consider it mere tea leaves.

    For example: WHAT would THAT ^ tell you about the "likely" outcome in VA?

    You can also follow it here

    RealClearPolitics - Opinion, News, Analysis, Videos and Polls

    They have already started calling states, with Vermont being called for Obama (despite no precints reporting in) and Kentucky being called for Romney with 5% reporting.

    Other things to note, Romney is leading easily in Indiana (no surprise), and with 1% reporting in New Hampshire Obama has a 30 point lead.

    Dick Morris is doing some fascinating tweeting on this.

    Just said Obama winning women in VA by 5 points, which is not enough for him.
