    McCain has 81 Electoral College Votes, not 64. At this point it still doesn't put him ahead but the night is young.

    I think CNN has totaled up Senator Obama's electoral votes incorrectly. Currently CNN has him at 174 electoral votes, but you project him winning the following states: IL (21) + PA (21) + MD (10) + DC (3) + DE (3) + NJ (15) + CT (7) + MA (12) + NH (4) + VT (3) + ME (4) + MN (10) + WI (10) + MI (17) + RI (4) + NY (31) = 175

    Ankur-

    Maine is not a winner take all state, so they can't count all the electoral votes until the vote tally is completed.
