(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.

    Two too many, indeed. The Republicans have proven that they cannot effectively make decisions about the future of this country! Let's hope they don't have another four years!

    Good luck liberals...with this economy, you'll all be out of jobs in two years and Obama will make Jimmy Carter look like a genious. Looks like a Republican route in 2012.
