Schneider: Kentucky vs. Vermont

From CNN Senior Political Analyst Bill Schneider

(CNN) - It's no surprise CNN has called Vermont for Barack Obama and Kentucky for John McCain. A look at the exit polls shows that both men won nearly every demographic across the board. These two states could not be more different!

    Dude...KY is a pretty conservative state. It's no surprise that McCain won there. Get off your conspiracy "theory" kick.

    Schneider PhD,
    Tell us how you contact those on cell phones...do you generate the #? I keep thinking that the polls are missing kids like my 3 boys with cell phones only! Could there be a big underreport in the polls? Kathleen Keegan Cowie

    Javian: Chill. Kentucky is a Red state. Nobody is cheating anyone yet.

    Okay Kentucky voted for McCain,Vermont voted Obama blah blah, water is wet, the sky is blue. I'm just suprised that Kentuckians knew where thier polling stations were.

    This is extremely sad. There's no way what I'm seeing is accurate.

    Let me get this straight: Obama loses ONE state and you call "foul" like the nerdy kid in a game of pick-up hoops. Grow up. Better yet, grow a pair.

    That is the most idiotic statement I have read in forever! To think that the government is "cheating" Obama is just absurd. And if they are then good for them!

    Calm down Javian. Obama's got this, hun.

    How can you guys tell who won a state with 10% (or in the case of Vermont) 0% of the votes counted?

    Who cares about some redneck state like Kentucky anyway?

    After 8 years of G.W John McCain should receive a price for making this election entertaining and interesting!!!

    He still has a good chance of winning still.....I believe it!!!!!

    Javian,
    Who's cheating who? I am a Obama supporter from Utah and haven't heard a thing about any part of the Government cheating the votes.

    ...that is the most absurd thing I have ever heard, it's pretty obvious Obama figured he'd lose Kentucky.

    Take it easy.
    OF COURSE McCain would win a largely conservative, white, christian, previously confederate state.
    OF COURSE Obama would take a largely Liberal, progressive, New England state.
    These two hardly predict the outcome of the election.

    Obama will win this election!

    What I'd like to know is how they can call Vermont for Obama when all the major news sites say there are 0% precincts reporting. At least Kentucky actually has some precincts reported.
