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.

    PLEASE get on the grammar! it's "too", not "to". Whoever wrote this should be denied his or her journalism degree (if he or she was ever issued said)

    Polls "to" close to call in six key states?
    Product of a liberal education.
    And we should believe what you misspell why?

    It's wise to say "too close to call" at this early point in the night. They don't want to repeat the debacle of calling Florida for Gore in 2000 then rescinding it later.

    I thought this might be an intelligent forum but it is clear that Barrack's promise, and his goals are being clouded by people with color STILL ON the mind.

    I am a Republican, white and have a Phd...I voted for Barrack. What does that make me?

    If the law of attraction is accurate Obama will win. Global polls show that the rest of the world wants Obama to win 4 to 1 in his favor. Good luck Obama!

    What i would like to know is why are we racist if Obama losses his race doesn't have anything to do with political beliefs and if i don't agree with them then how does that make me racist? Furthermore you would just be saying the same thing if Hillary was in this race only that the country is sexist instead of racist because she is a woman. So instead of being an ignorant fool on the internet think about what your saying before hand because stupid comments like our country is racist is not needed and furthermore most likely not supported by Obama himself. Whoever wins is our president and blaming it on something none related to politics is juvenile.

    if you're not an obama supporter it does not mean you're racist. there are people who actually read and support policies.

    although i'm not saying mccain should win, just don't be contentious and confront others.

    chill.

    Please fix it – too close to call. I hope Obama improves the educational system in the country.

    Are the polls to close early? OH, my bad, "toooooo" close to call.

    Hey, McCain is doing better than I thought he would. Go John! (My dad was a plumber and a Republican when he died.)

    Hey CNN you missed an "o" in your too. Who cares. I can't believe there are people checking spellings right now. There si an election going on, maybe you should pay attention to that

    Typo in your headline:
    Polls to close to call in six key states

    Should be: Polls "TOO" close, not "TO" close

    You seem to forget who has been the majority in Congress for the last 4 years, Congress makes the laws the president signs them into law.

    I am white and I believe that if obama loses it does mean that we are still a very racist country!

    I like how if Obama loses its because this country is racist and has nothing to with people disagreeing with his policies, whereas if Mccain loses its because people dont agree with his policies. Talk about hypocrisy

    I voted for John McCain, a true American hero. I trust him. I could never vote for Obama, a man who is the most liberal member of the Senate. I don't believe Obama will win and it has nothing to do with his race. It's his values. He's way off.

    its sad that more people are concerned with grammar than the election. Although it drives me nuts to see it spelled 'to' instead of 'too'. You work for CNN for cryin' out loud!

    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.
