(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.
OBAMA for life, for ever and ever.
For always will.
He will get the top anyway.
No one will be able to stop him.
The weapon is going to form, but it doesn' t mean its going to prosper, in the name of Jesus, Obama will be our new 44th President!!!
