Election Results Live-Blog I: Is Obama Already Winning?

* CNN continues to drop big hints, mostly encouraging for Obama (bellwether county in Indiana going for Obama; Romney pollster said to have shown Obama winning Ohio by 5 yesterday). White percentage of the electorate down from 71% to 67% in Florida.

* Markos Moulitsas says voter suppression real, but won’t matter.

* A little bird just told me from a source deep within Republican-land that Obama’s going to win pretty decisively, winning PA, OH, WI and IA. Romney may win FL, and VA is too close to call. But the ultimate prize isn’t in doubt. Don’t know how reliable this is, but still: wow. Source also says it will be called earlier than everyone has expected.

* Polls about to close in Virginia and a bunch of less-competitive states. A new thread is on the way soon.
