(CNN) – Barack Obama is set to win seven states and the District of Columbia as polls close at 8 p.m., CNN projects, based on exit polls.
The Democratic candidate is on pace to beat Republican John McCain in Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, his home state of Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts and New Jersey. CNN projects he will also win three of the four electoral votes in Maine, which splits its electoral votes proportionally.
That would give him 77 electoral votes to McCain's 34. A candidate needs 270 to win the White House.
If Obama doesn't win, will not really mean it was some bs in the game but the fact that every body that posted signs and spoke of support for Obama wasn't riding with him but McCain
OBAMA MAKE THE CHANGE!!!!!!!!!!!!
Obama's winning a bunch of blue states...so, how is this news?
Obama will be the next President of the USA.

too bad. i guess we really do want the government to take care of us all.
the united states can't take 4 more years of a republican president. . . .think of what we went through the past 4 or 5 months with GAS and FOOD skyrocketing not to mention FORECLOSURES and LOSS OF JOBS. . .. .until you've had to struggle to take care a family off of 70,000 or less then no one knows, especially the weathy, of what it means to struggle. . . .
