If a exit poll has a 57/43 margin, its safe to assume a pass.

It looks like it was "Yes" across most demographics. Of course, who knows how the actual vote went. We'll see soon.

I hate TV news on election day.I only like it when Republicans win, because it's fun to watch Chris Matthews get all frowny-faced. :lol:

I'm following the races on Yahoo. If the Tennessee, NJ, and Virginia results hold, it's over for the Dems. I won't hold my breath, though.

Virginia is a 100-vote dead heat.

I just saw a news projection that Menendez is the winner. And yeah, Virginia is a dead heat last I saw.
