LDVUSA – join us here live from 11pm

by Stephen Tall on November 4, 2008

The Lib Dem Voice collective will be live-blogging the US election from 11pm tonight, via the magic of CoverItLive. So keep the site open as you watch/listen/browse your way through the twists and turns of a truly historic night. As well as our chat and your comments, we’ll also have a couple of posts from Our Man in Grant Park Chicago, Lib Dem councillor Paul Elgood. See you in just over a couple of hours.

Oh, and by the way, if you see any exit poll leaks on t’intenets, (i) ignore them – they’re probably wrong; and (ii) post the links in the comments thread below, ‘cos we’ll all still want to obsess about them 🙂

Enjoy reading this? Please like and share:

I knew you’d fall for CoverItLive eventually 🙂 I think IainDale is doing a massive CIL too, so I’ll have to book mark you both!

Oh good, I was beginning to wonder if there was going to be a LibDem competitor to Dale’s thing. See you in a bit!

You can see the Indiana results coming in here:

http://edition.cnn.com/ELECTION/2008/results/county/#val=INP00p9

and compare to last time’s here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/elections/2004/in/prescounties/

and from what I can see there is a pretty big swing to Obama in the ones that are reporting so far.

Vigo County for example: 46% Kerry last time, 57% Obama so far this time.

MSNBC say Indiana too close to call.

That’s got to be good news for Obama and suggests the polls are not too far out.

Not on my PC it isn’t – there’s no comment box.

or do you mean your new fangled ‘CIL’ thingy that I can’t get onto at all?

Fair ’nuff.

Even I can’t get on my new fangled CIL thingy at the moment. (But that’s cos bloody O2 has chosen tonight to have a major server failure. Grrr.)

CNN Ohio exit poll puts Obama 6% ahead.

Pennsylvania called straight away for Obama.

Obama 1% ahead in Florida in CNN exit poll and well ahead in Missouri

I can’t see how McCain can win now.

Obama is clearly ahead in several Bush states and McCain isn’t going to win any Kerry states.

Libeal Neil, I agree. Now ITV graphics have been corrects to Obama 103, McCain 34
