Polls too close to call in six key states

(CNN) – The polls are too close for CNN to project a winner in six states, including the often-critical battleground of Ohio.

CNN is not currently projecting whether Republican John McCain or Democrat Barack Obama will win Georgia, Indiana, North Carolina, Virginia or West Virginia.

    If Obama loses it just proves that God is still incontrol of this nation.

    George W. Bush is God?

    If Obama loses, that does not mean that Americs is full of racists. I think that people should just forget the fact that he's half black. It makes no difference and I don't think that someone would vote for McCain just because he is white if they disagree with his views. This election has nothing to do with the color of skin, and if people really think it does, than they really don't know enough about our country, now do they?

    Maybe some people think experience is what makes a good leader, not charisma.

    Voting for McCain does not reflect racism, but rather care for the national economy and a financial structure that is not reflective of socialism. Voting for McCain is also a vote against infanticide of children of all races.

    We are always paid for our suspicion by finding what we suspect. Cautious, careful people, always casting about to preserve their reputation and social standing, never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation, and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathy with despised and persecuted ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences.

    In a day with an unprecedented level of global attention, the United States of America elects its 44th president. So much has been written about it if there is no last-minute surprise, I am betting on Obama.
    He has done everything right in his campaign – coming across as calm, intelligent and presidential, whereas McCain has been erratic, impulsive and (in his choice of the woefully undercooked Sarah Palin as his running mate) irresponsible. If Obama were white, this would not even be a close contest. If he loses despite having run the most impressive presidential campaign in recent Democratic memory, will it mean that the candidate of change has been defeated by the one thing he cannot change – the colour of his skin??

    Just because someone doesn't vote for Obama does not automatically make them a racist. In that case.. following your example then wouldn't you be a racist for not voting for someone simply because they are white.

    Here we go,, just because someone supports McCain means they are racist. Since Obama is friends with a known terrorist does that mean if u support him then your a terrorist?

    Nothing to do with race. Dems screwed up the economy with sub prime mess.

    Come on man, why does everyone always have to pull the race card?

    If Alan Keyes or Al Sharpton ran for president I wouldn't vote for them, and it isn't because they're black.

    I support Obama, but honestly if you want to help stop racism, you need to stop pulling the race card, it will hurt your chances at getting rid of racism more than it will help them. Believe it or not, some people don't want Obama in just because they don't agree with his policies, black or white.

    I think we should wait until the votes are counted before we pull out the race card. It simply does injustice to what Barrack stands for.

    it could also be clinton supporters who are voting mccain because my whole family of 6 who voted for clinton are voting mccain! obama did not even win the electoral college against clinton what makes him think he could against mccain even though he got the supper delegates backing him! thats the only reason he won against clinton!

    I couldn't agree with you more. It's really sad to see so much hatred here in our own country. Pathetic.

    Wow. With 4% of precincts reporting, Warner (D Senate) is ahead in VA while Obama is behind. That makes me nervous. All day today I was thinking it was going to be a landslide for Obama.

    I think thats an ignorant statement. None of us should make this about race. It's about the canidates. Obama didn't make it about race and neither should his supporters.

    So if you vote for McCain you must be a racist?

    Obama supporter you should be able to do better than that!

  23. OBAMA SUPPORTER

    Not only that, it proves that dirty politics is what America stands for. The ignorance of people not voting for Obama because of B.S., i.e., he is an Muslim, the Anti-Christ, a terrorist, not a naturalized citizen. It proves that facts no longer win elections, ignorance, naiveness, and implanting fear in our brains does. Our country will suffer badly if McCain/Palin wins this election!

  24. Voted for McCain

    There are other reasons besides race that cause people to vote.
