(CNN) - John McCain is set to win two more states as polls close at 8 p.m., CNN projects, based on exit polls.

McCain is on pace to defeat Democratic candidate Barack Obama in Oklahoma and Tennessee, which have a total of 18 electoral votes. CNN earlier projected that he would win South Carolina and Kentucky, bringing him to a total of 34 electoral votes.

A candidate needs 270 electoral votes to capture the White House.

    In addition to my last comment, I have to bring up the fact that over and over I've heard how inexperienced Sarah Palin is. All of those people that love to bring up that argument don't seem to want to think about Obama and Biden's lack of experience!

    Why don't these stations get it right before reporting?! Obama won PA by a landslide, and the senile McCain is contesting it lol! Get a clue Johnny boy, and look at the numbers. They tell the whole story LOL!

    Who said Race was not a factor?
    If Barack Hussein Obama Jr. was not running for president the black population 'the majority' would be staying home and not voting. But when the blacks get a promise of $1000.00 dollars even for the blacks that do not pay taxes.
    Way to proud citizens.

    Our country our USA used to be a strong proud country. Truth, the American dream, independence and together we stand meant something. Together we need to rebuild and It may take this generation to sacrifice taxes and whatever else for our future America.
    Reality is we need to clean up the mess that the past number of years has left our country with on all levels. Tough job for any one but united maybe we can, Drastic times call for drastic measures. Race or party doesn't matter to the soilders that are unfortanely fighting, they are united and stand together for this country, why can't we do that on our own turf?

    Republicans you people are so blind and selfish' only thinking about their own future'what about poor people, what about equality? what is wrong with this world? Obama will change everything for good,Mccain is going to bury us all alive even the Republicans' just life Bush almost did. OBAMA is the right man to push this Country out of the "gutter" that we are in today.

    Yeah, CHANGE is coming baby. It is about time America has to now be forced to understand Muslim philososohpy and not just have Christianity as a majority. Change is good, we will build on social programs and help the disadnataged, We will get more involved in Africa and the problems there, like AIDS who is destroying this continent. instead of always being concerned with the middle east, europe and Asia all the time. OH yeah change is a comin and you better like it. CHANGE BABY..
