Most Excellent news on the turnout front! In the Big 4 battlegrounds: Ohio, Florida, Michigan and Pennsylvania, turnout in Democratic precincts/ demographics is exceeding comparable Republican areas/ demographics! And check this out: The African American and Hispanic turnouts are FAR exceeding expectations: Up to 144% of historical turnout rates!!

**Update: So Kos and MyDD claim to have gotten some leaked exit poll results that show Kerry leading in all 4 of the above Big Daddies. If you assume the rest of the states go as previously projected from most recent polls, that give Kerry a huge victory - 311 electoral votes (270 needed to win). So nobody's really taking this seriously *quite* yet... except for the stock market, which according to this article is dropping due - apparently to the influence of said liberal blog reports.

You have GOT to be kidding me. Liberal bloggers causing the stock market to fall? I don't think so. On the other hand - it's pretty apparent the net is going apeshit from all the desperate attempts to find any kind of information. Blogger is freezing up and every other political site being linked to by bloggers. So you know there is *some* serious attention being paid to bloggers in general. But the stock market? Come on!

*****Day After Update: I will never believe a fucking "exit poll" ever again. As long as I live. So help me, Maude.
