UPDATE: New exit polls show Obama picking up an edge in Florida and Pennsylvania. Keep in mind these exit poll internals do shift throughout the night.
Below information is based on exit polls. So ASSUME THIS INFORMATION IS WRONG…. These are not vote counts.
UPDATE: Florida had a D+3 skew. 35D, 32D.
UPDATE: Exits show Obama winning OH, 51-48%. North Carolina tied at 49%.
UPDATE: Virginia exit polls are all close but Romney doing better than McCain everywhere. But is it enough? By 52-46%, voters believe Romney better at handling the economy. 62% believe the economy is the biggest issue.
Overall, in the state of VA, it’s tied 49-49% per the exit polls.
UPDATE: America split on ObamaCare:
Forty-five percent of voters said they think the 2010 law should be either fully or partially repealed, compared with 47 percent who want to see the law remain as-is or see it expanded further.
UPDATE: Better able to handle Medicare: Obama only up two in Florida, 49-47%. That’s a total failure of the media and Obama to capitalize on The Ryan Plan.
UPDATE: Better able to handle the economy: Romney up three, 50-47%, nationally.
UPDATE: Drudge, the genius, just moved OH out of Obama’s column and into toss up.
UPDATE: 50% of Ohioans angry or dissatisfied with Obama. Romney wins on the economy, 53-47%.
UPDATE: Looks like we have a D+3 electorate, at least nationally. We’ll see what the swing states tell us. As far as the demographics, 73% white, 10% Hispanic… These numbers are right on the cusp of what Romney and Obama needed. So, close.
EXIT POLLS: RACE TIGHT
R: NC, FL
O: OH, NH, PA, MI, NV
TOSS UP: VA, CO, IA
Drudge says Obama has 190 and Romney has 191 Electoral Votes locked.
Let’s look at the internals…
About 4 in 10 say they think the nation’s economy is on the mend, but more say that things are getting worse or are bad and stagnating.
About half of voters say the previous president, George W. Bush, shoulders more of the blame for economic challenges than President Barack Obama.
Just a quarter of those surveyed in the exit poll say they are better off than four years ago.
