No... its down to the wire but Vigo says Romney will be our next President!

I would have liked a more conclusive result but I’ll take it. This is the best news of the night!

Cheers!

Indeed, traditionally Democratic area of Indiana...may be the closest contest in the entire state; as predicted, Romney carried the state handily; nice to see the Hoosiers back in the R column, and Murdock has an early lead in the Senate race to boot. Hope Romney’s coattails can carry him across the finish line, too.

We dodged a bullet there.

If Vigo had gone the other way, we would have to eat crow.

Let Nate Silver and Intrade do it instead!

Vigo County is home of two universities, Indiana State and Rose Hulman. That can explain the lower numbers for dems (low turnout)

Vigo as a national bellwether has always sided with the presidential winner - its been wrong only two times since 1892.

RCP average had Romney winning IN @ 9.5%.

Obama won it by 1.1% in 2008.

Per FL: RT @KarlRove: RT @JebBush: Great numbers in Pasco and Volusia counties in fl for Romney. I predict he wins!

That's Jeb saying "I predict," not Rove

Also, FYI, Cuyahoga 170k below 08. Smells like victory to me.

Thanks Ravi. Indiana may be flickering until the fat lady sings, but the ultimate result will be worse than this for Zero.

If this were a big win election for our side, we would have won this.

I am concerned.

It will likely be close.

Obama is ahead with 99 percent in....just barely...but ahead.

Wish it were better but it’s still a 14 point swing in a moderate county over 2008. Nothing to sneeze at. Keep your chin up.

With 99% reporting O was up 125 votes for what it’s worth.
