OBAMA WINS! Romney reportedly phones Obama to concede.

CNN says that Mitt Romney called President Obama and conceded.

CNN 335 vote difference between Obama and Romney with 73% of vote in.

CNN: Dems will retain majority in Senate

“@SrWHOfficial: Why are they playing “Nearer My God To Thee” at the Romney party?”

RT @JesseBerney At 11 p.m., Obama gets 78 EVs, putting him at 240. He needs 20 more. MN is 10. Just needs FL *or* OH + [NV, CO, IA, or VA]

LOL worthy:

Carville: “If Florida goes [to Obama], the election is over.” Carville then said it looks like Obama is going to get Florida.  GOP consultant Alex Castellanos:”I hate it when he’s right…. Romney is hanging on to winning that thing by the top of his fingers… it’s looking very tough right now for Mitt Romney.”

Michael Barbaro @mikiebarb
The scene here at the Romney party is loud — but it’s not cheers. A band has started playing music. TV News volume has been cut off.

John King just said on CNN, and a good political friend just mentioned privately, that if Romney doesn’t win Florida, the election is over.

“@froomkin: If OH, FL & VA are remotely close, expect a blizzard of GOP lawsuits & no concession speech. GOP knows it’s all about the endgame.”

Senator McCaskill wins in MO over “Legitimate rape” Akin! So both rape guys lost.

French political observer friend notes that Scott Brown’s win in Jan of 2010 was heralded as the beginning of great GOP wave/Tea Party – remember they were wondering whether we should give up on passing health care reform.  Oh well.  Wave gone now. Buh bye.

“@marjoriepaillon: L’élection de #Brown avait lancé la vague GOP & TParty aux midterms de 2010. La reprise du siège au #Senat par une Dem est-il de bon augure?”

The demoralization on the right has begun to deepen:

CNN: Says Elizabeth Warren DID win, and GOP Senate candidate Richard “Rape-babies are a gift from God” Mourdock lost in IN.

“@AntDeRosa: Bob Schieffer: “It is looking much more difficult for Romney to win””

Heh.

538.com/NYT says Obama is leading in bellwether counties in Florida.

Dem Sherrod Brown wins Senate in Ohio.

FOX/NBC call WI for Obama. Ruh roh…

“@RomneyCentral: Not good, folks. RT @philipaklein: Fox projects Wisconsin for Obama”

Remember, Chuck Todd said that if Obama gets OH and WI, he wins the presidency.

Tammy Baldwin may have, or may not have, won yet in Wisconsin – hearing it might have been called too soon – stay tuned.

Fox and NBC call Pennsylvania for Obama!

NBC: ELIZABETH WARREN WINS SENATE IN MASSACHUSETTS!

“@JoshuaGreen: RT @mmurraypolitics NBC News calls that Republicans will retain the House — 240 R, 195 D, plus-minus 11 seats (218 needed for control)”

“@notlarrysabato: Obama exceeding numbers he needs in southside Virginia with a strong African American vote.”

RameshPonnuru: Sharp negative turn in the mood of conservatives on twitter.

This guy is the closest thing the Rs have to their own Nate Silver, and he’s not pleased:

SeanTrende: Would be very surprised at this point if Romney wins VA. Not getting the swings he needs.

RT @Toure: Laura Ingraham: “If you can’t beat Barack Obama w this record then shut down the party. Shut it down. Start new with new people.”

Okay this is interesting – keep in mind that Chuck Todd said earlier that a sign of a good night for Obama would be VA, NC and FL remaining too close to call:

“@ThePlumLineGS: Polling averages said FL, VA, and (less so) NC would be extremely close. They are proving extremely close. #Election2012”

“@thehill: #Obama narrowly wins bellwether #Indiana county http://t.co/1Izn68EQ by @cam_joseph”

“@DavidShuster: FL looking better and better for Obama.  He is + 100,000 over Romney with heavy dem Miami precincts still to come.

“@NKingofDC: Very interesting. National exits show Obama getting 74% of the Asian vote, up from 62% in ’08. Could be his biggest growth.”

Spock is manning the voter protection hotline at Obama HQ in Chicago – very cool:

Michael Grunwald @MikeGrunwald
Watching Fox is so much fun. O’Reilly is already trashing Mitt’s campaign, declaring the US a European nation of slackers & dependents.

“@politico: Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy has defeated Republican Linda McMahon in the Connecticut Senate race, the AP reports. #breaking”

Let’s use this as our area for the latest info, and the comments to chat.

I’m not covering the obvious stuff.  You can get the winners of states in which we already knew what was going to happen on the news sites.

“@marcambinder: Best gauge of the evening: the mood at Fox News. Just watch for a while.”

“@daveweigel: OH GOP Chairman going a rather sober “thank you to volunteers” speech http://t.co/zIxrpkaP”

     I think I just heard Tweety say that he was glad that hurricane Sandy hit the east coast, “politically speaking”.  I stepped out of the room for a minute, and Maddow went to Tweety for a final statement to end the night’s coverage, and after Tweety’s shocking statement, they ended the coverage as fast as they could.  I am a bit gobsmacked.

    With both Colorado and Nevada called for Obama, even if Romney took both VA and FL and upset every OH expectation, Obama would still have 272 EVs — which is 2 more than is needed to win.

    I know — amazing news! She’s gonna be a hell of a Senator, and a worthy successor to Ted Kennedy.

    May he accept God’s will and raise that Fail Baby all the way to term.

    Elizabeth Warren wins! :-) 52% over Scott’s 48%!

    So… the Chuck Todd estimate (even though I think he’s a GOP-leaning hack) he said Romney needed to worry if VA, FL, or NC were deemed too close to call, and if OH and PA were called early.

    So at 9:30p EDT, VA and FL are both said to be too close to call, and PA was called early. And Obama is leading strongly in Ohio.

    Sheep for sure!

  • Dave of the Jungle

    Obviously what God intended.

    Mourdock loses!  Wonder if he will accept god’s will?

     Don’t underestimate the public to be severely uninformed. The way I see it, people tune in to the local news for less than an hour a day and during which the spin we get is, “Romney the businessman ran a successful business” and “both sides do it”.
    So while the media is complicit in getting those commercial-dollars, by selling their journalistic integrity, they also play off of the ignorance of the masses who, naively, trust what the media tells them.
    Two things need to happen: The news media need to stop bowing to the corporate dollar and grow a journalistic backbone and 2). The populace needs to become actively informed and gain critical-thinking skills to judge the quality and veracity of what they hear.

    Elizabeth Warren Won !!!

    NBC has NOT called the Senate race in MA.  It is an erroneous twitter message going around.

    PA = my home state.  :-)

    “@DavidShuster: FL looking better and better for
    Obama.  He is + 100,000 over Romney with heavy dem Miami precincts still
    to come

    I switched to FOX and saw this on their screen.  WOW.    Obama has more votes now then he did with Mccain in 2008! WOW! 

  • Dave of the Jungle

    So much for Mitt’s delusion.

  • HereinDC

    I turned to FOX.  They predict Obama wins Pennsylvania

  • Dave of the Jungle

    When they call my state of Arizona for Romney, I’ll probably just burp.

  • An_American_Karol

     Jim, I agree.  I have not been able to watch the news in months.  I just can’t stomach the spin.

  • http://www.rebeccamorn.com/mind BeccaM

    Well, they just called my state of New Mexico for Obama. Zero surprise there.

  • FunMe

    Just got home from Palm Springs. Figuring out my vote for propositions. I have a few hours but want to be done in 30 minutes. 

    Voting my protest vote against the politicians who are turning our country into an oligarchy. I will vote Green. I DETEST with a passion Romney, and it was tight I may just vote for our President. But  Obama is going to win California so my vote won’t get romney in.

  • Jim Olson

    News on both sides want a close race because it makes good news, gets eyeballs on screens, and makes money.  This is not a liberal or conservative effect.  The news on both sides has been shocking in how blatantly they want this to be a tie.  Every time one of these talking heads shows us how the states can line up for a tied Electoral college score I want to scream.

  • An_American_Karol

    Waiting to see how badly the American people have been manipulated and lied to by the “liberal” news in its projections on the race for president.  I may have to eat my words, but it will be interesting to see if there had ever been a close race. 

  • HereinDC

    Nice to see the Independent to win Maine…..Kind of sets the mood …if…ya…think.

  • Dave of the Jungle

    Poor things.
