20. Wait a minute -- WRONG ... PA was "too close to call", then "too early to call"
and then FINALLY called for her around an hour (or maybe 1-1/2 hours)
after the polls closed.

23. It wasn't like they called PA the minute the polls closed
Like they did tonight in NC. It was such a BLOWOUT in
NC that they could call it right away ... PA WASN'T A
BLOWOUT so it took a while.

10. Two minutes.
The bigger the margin of victory, the shorter the period between poll closing and calling the election.

beforehand, but were not allowed to release them during official voting hours.

Or else the exit polls were just so overwhelming.

Maybe both.


CNN is showing


*OBAMA 40% : 870
CLINTON 60% : 1,323

0% reporting

*WINNER

So, I don't know.
