    Minnesota exit polls showed that 54% of men voted yes and 57% of women voted no, with 51% of all voters being women, which is a very good sign, as it means it should fail with around 52% of people voting no, and that’s not counting people who skip it. Weren’t the California exit polls on prop 8 pretty accurate? I’m cautiously optimistic about it, although still unsure…

    That’s a really bad run-on sentence. In my defense this is like the most nervous I’ve been in my life.

    I don’t think it’s gonna be that long of a night. Time’s about up for Romney.

    Actually that’s what politico says, but cnn still shows it as close. I wonder why there’s a discrepancy.

    I’m amazed to see Hawaii closes its polls so early. As for marriage… remembering that early returns looked good on Prop 8, but got worse as the night wore on…

    I remember early returns for prop 8 showing 54% yes, and it slowly lowered to 52.5% before the night was over. Definitely don’t remember it losing at any point.

    I’m confused why CNN isn’t calling Maryland.

    I’m stunned Romney’s crowd applauded Obama and his family. Four years ago McCain had to stop them from booing. Maybe they’re learning a bit.

    Minnesota is really close, but I want to point out that EVERY SINGLE COUNTY that has been completely tallied has voted yes so far, and every county that has voted no still has more ballets to count. And Olmstead County, which should vote no (I think) hasn’t even started yet, for some reason.

    Also, I just found out that Minneapolis hasn’t reported any results yet because they’re waiting until they count all of the absentee ballots. Another good sign, since Minneapolis is by far the most liberal part of Minnesota.

    It’s great news and I am also happy to see that WA’s Initiative 502 and Colorado’s Amendment 64 passed.
