I sat there on edge for seemingly hours after the polls closed on the east coast waiting to see who won Florida when all of the sudden Obama went from 202 to 273. Of course i thought he must have gotten Florida, North Carolina and something else.

NO.....

Cali, Oregon and Washington quickly closed the polls and posted the results thereby giving Obama the win..

Where was Florida? still counting...:rolleyes:

Yes, still counting. Exit polls were not conclusive. They waited until almost all the vote was counted before declaring the winner.

Most of the networks declared it just a few minutes after California, Oregon, and Washington.

Took awhile to get Miami/Dade county in. Plus, I think they were being extra carefull on calling anything in Florida "before it's time".

Florida is a bunch of snowbirds, northern retirees, and Haitians.
