Huh?

The polls have not yet closed in my state, yet Yahoo's state-by state results map shows that 3% of precincts have already reported their results, and that Obama "has won" in this state. Well, yes, in this state he probably has - but it just seems so wrong for them to be announcing 'results' before the polls have even closed in this state, let alone out west!

Given the fiasco in Florida 8 years ago they do their sums right now! My husband took great pains to explain all the statistical calculations that were going on throughout the evening (yawn, he's a CPA). They don't take any chances, but yes it seemed odd.

Well, thank goodness there was no accusations of any stealing this year. Yes, I agree--the media releases info too soon --even after all the moratoriums placed on it since last fiascos.

The more I hear about the American electoral system, the less I understand it! At least high courtjudges don't need to be involved this time around. I'm off to buy my Commemorative issue of The Economist, I know it shd really be Time magazine, more iconic, but I AM British! And my hsuband wants to actually read it, so h esays it has to be the Economist
