I’m seeing tweets that state that the turnout in the Southern part of the state is so heavy that they may not have the votes tabulated until morning.

Barone was just on Fox News saying that a couple of FL counties show Romney not only outperforming McCain in 08, but Bush in 04.

I lived in Florida during the 2000 election, and Gore was way, way, way up and the media almost immediately called the state for him - while some in the panhandle (central time) were still voting. Bush won huge margins of the remaining votes and actually wound up winning by a razor-thin margin.

If the order is in the same way, Obama has to have a monstrous lead in the earlier returns to win Florida.

Rove and Jeb Bush reported from the bellweather counties, Henrico, Volusia. All very good. FL will be R.

The polls don’t close in GOP heavy panhandle for another 15min & long lines reported. Those in line @ close will get to vote so chill.

Florida looks fragile because three of the big Demo counties are in: Orange (Orlando); Palm Beach (again!) and Hillsborough (Tampa). They are having a disproportionate effect on the total state vote as yet counted.

I’m not from Florida but one question to ask is where the results are from.Southeast part of the state (heavily populated) Rat Party stronghold.Rest of the state,particularly the Panhandle (which is still voting),much more conservative.

That is only with 1.3 % of the vote in. Fox has an error there.

Remember 2000 when the media called it for Florida and the polls on the west side of the state hadn’t even closed yet? West side of Florida is on Central time. Cool out.

Panhandle still voting. This section will vote heavily for Romney so as long as he keeps it close elsewhere, nothing to be concerned about.

Per Dick Morris, it’s early voting totals. He was worried at first too.

The Panhandle is in a different time zone.
Polls not closed there, yet, I don’t think.
That area is Republican.

50 to 49 Obama with 29% in, this means the Pan Handle will put Romney over the top. Bush was way behind in the 7-8PM count in 2000 and 2004

Doughty, they’ve only counted DEM counties in FL. Stay calm. We’ve got this! Panhandle where the solid Rs are is on a different time zone.

Let’s allow the polls in the conservative part of Florida, which is still voting, to close. And then let’s count their votes before we all wet ourselves prematurely.

Florida polls haven’t closed. Tabulations shouldn’t even be counted yet. The panhandle is in a different time zone and is where R will win big.

Miami Herald had an article yesterday posted on Freep; obama’s early vote advantage in 2012 less than half what it was in 2008 and even then he won the state by barely 1.5%....if the election day vote in 2012 mirrors what went down in 2008 obama is toast...

Against the rules as I understand them. A repeat of 2000.
