    Florida had 8.4 million votes in 2012, is expected to go over this year. Current vote count (as per Guardian) is slightly below 8 million, so still some hundred thousands coming in at least. And the difference is only in the ten thousands.

    On the other hand, media outlets are often accused of jumping the gun, in a bid to get the exclusive scoop on a particular result.

    Not many states have completed the ballots yet. And the states still to go, there's more people living in the blue ones than the red ones.

    Yep, that's where I saw the 12000 figure. BBC has 61% counted though instead of almost all.

    By the way, what is Krauthammer? (i am sure german, ok :D ). I mean i don't know if he is something deemed positive or not (only saw him now) but he seems to have some issues re speaking/inhaling and overall :o (sorry, this is the first time i have watched Fox live, it looks a bit miserable LOL)

    Breaking news: Trump is leading in Maine with 100% of the vote.

    Disclaimer: Less than 1% of precincts reporting, total of 2 votes reported so far.

    I'm not sure I like this constantly-updating map more than the old TV updates method. Especially when so few precincts are reporting, things are changing all the time.

    On the plus side, Clinton leading Texas with 1% of precincts reporting looks nice, and Rhode Island is no longer leaning Trump.

    Let's hope so! The alternative is only slightly worse than those new Toblerone bars!

    He's paralysed, I think he had some sort of accident which severely disabled him. He's actually one of the more interesting Fox pundits, because he's considered an intellectual force behind conservatism (not just a media personality).

    He's a neoconservative activist who masquerades as a journalist.

    Trump seems to be pulling ahead in Florida, now up a hundred thousand, with not so many left to count

    Well he sounded somewhat disgusted (he was talking to O'Reilly though, so it might just be due to that ^^ )

    Apparently, Broward County and Palm Beach still have some large percentage still to report, which might give Hillary enough votes to win...

    He's been one of the voices on Fox most critical of Trump.
