    A combination of a bunch of political people I follow on Twitter, CNN (blech), and 538's live blog, the latter of which can be seen here.

    MSNBC? :) (or its brother, CNN)

    Meh, for some reason now i also am hooked at this, despite being between deplorables (nominees for president) :D
    I suppose it is due to reaction, cause regardless of who becomes potus i have no reason to think it will be good news, let alone for anything i care about..

    Do you think that the news shows will hold off calling Florida and NC to maintain suspense and viewership?

    Because the rural parts are largely what've reported in. We're still waiting on the heavily Democratic NoVA area.

    Perhaps they are colluding to and have agreed to hold off until 9-9:30 ET.

    Trump is now leading Florida with almost all votes counted.

    So is there any chance this will be a win with considerable margin? Cause seems to be close. Shock as monster doesn't look much more attractive than other monster? :)

    Reuters has this noted on their electoral map too (as leading, not as having won of course).

    I read that he was ahead by 12,000 with lots of votes to count.

    538 says Clinton has 78% of winning.

    I've seen the 12000 figure else where but not the "almost all votes counted".
