Election Results Live-Blog IX: Waiting For the Inevitable

* As we wait for calls in the remaining battleground states, let’s note that (per Daily Kos) marriage equality referenda are currently winning in Maryland (narrowly) and Maine (more comfortably), while a gay-marriage ban in Minnesota is losing by a sizable margin.

* After an interminable Gergen/Bolger segment on the Mood of America, I finally switched from watching CNN to NBC. But on NBC, Williams, Gregory and Guthrie are blathering about Gridlock and the Abandoned Center. How’s about some state legislative results or something (can’t find national indicators on those yet)?

* NBC does find time to call Minnesota for Obama.

* Tweet from RCP’s Sean Trende, the perpetually Honest Conservative Number-Cruncher: “90% certain Romney is only going to flip NC and IN (and NE-2).” That would mean Obama winning OH, VA, FL, CO, IA and NV, and an Obama Electoral College Majority of 332-206.
Who’d a thunk it?
