The Election Line: 2:00 pm ET Update

More

An anecdotal canvassing from sources and reports across the nation.


Yes, btw, there ARE exit polls. No, I don't have access to them yet.

Democrats in Virginia say that GOP base precinct turnout is lower than what they'd expect for a race that's not supposed to be close. GOPers need to run 10-11 points ahead in base precincts in the aggregate, as of this AM they were about even. Some anecdotes about lower-than-expected GOP turnout in Richmond too. Note, though, that there's always a drop-off from about 10am to 4:30 pm, and that turnout is still in the range of a solid GOP victory across the tickets.

Turnout in Maine is high. In Bangor, it's over 50%, and that bodes poorly for ME 1, which would overturn the state's new same-sex marriage law.  High turnout seems to favor gay marriage; low turnout seems oppose it.

The folks at Public Policy Polling: "Many people who approve of Obama not voting for Owens, Corzine- that's the candidates' fault, not his."

Republicans are excited about what they're seeing in Virginia and not very excited about seeing about New Jersey.
