Election Results

>> Tuesday, November 02, 2004

I've had a number of people asking me about the results so far. Just so you know, if you hear any numbers before the polls close, they are not official. The numbers quoted before the polls close are from "exit polls", meaning interviewers asking voters after they've voted. As with other polls, they don't mean much unless you have a huge sample size.

One US Territory, however has already closed because it's on the other side of the date line -- Guam. Less than 30,000 total votes, but it's 2 to 1 for President Bush.

Let's keep up the momentum. Call every Bush supporter you know and make sure they've voted. President Bush needs to win BIG. As Hugh Hewitt says, "If it ain't close, they can't cheat."

Here are a few sites posting results:

More here as I get them...

UPDATE: Well, it's close. It looks like President Bush took Iowa by 36,000 votes. This is without counting absentee ballots, so that total will change over the next few days.
Most news stations have President Bush at 269 Electoral Votes, but the other guy at 244. Iowa, Wisconsin, and New Mexico are still too close to finalize. Ohio was called for Bush by 136,000 votes or right around the total number of provisional ballots. Let's hope Kerry takes the high road and keeps the lawyers out of this and lets the states finish counting and accept the results. What a night.

UPDATE 11/3/2004 @ 10:30: I just checked the State of Iowa results and Bush is still up, but the margin is at 14,000 votes. We won't know for a while what the official Iowa tally is until all absentee ballots are counted. However, with Kerry conceding, this doesn't effect the outcome of the race.
