Oh, and watching CNN, they just did a short piece from the GOP boondoggle in Phoenix, and WHAT of ALL THINGS is going on there right now?

Ya think Texas is any different? Do ya? Well??? The land of steers and queers can't beat out suburban Baptist radicals. I hate radicals who never recognize they are radical. Piss me off.

Sure looks like it, OH or VA should be enough to seal the deal if either falls Obama's way...

The far more conservative CNN has it at McCain 34, and Obama 102 (just gave him PA).

It usually means that it's not a close contest in that state. They arrive at that conclusion from exit polls, pre-election surveys, and other analyses..

Exit polling of the voters prior to the polls actually reporting or even closing.

It really depends on where the early reporting counties are located in relation to their demographic/historic voting trends. It's entirely possible to project the probability of a turnaround in outcome based upon a small sampling like that, if the early votes are coming from major urban centers or rural areas if there aren't very many urban centers to counteract the former.
