    The "Whoever Wins... We Lose" slogan would go well with this.

    Not surprising yet. California and other swing states are the main point

    It's interesting to watch these get called and how long it takes.

    All of the sources I'm using are taking their data from ABC who seem to be playing it more cautiously. (NBC has called SC, ABC has yet to.)

    Based only on states called by ABC and the time taken to call them, FiveThirtyEight is now saying 60% chance of Hillary winning , 38% chance of Trump.

    Normally, I would feel obliged to respond to that phrase with "Cool, cool cool." But today, I really don't feel like it.

    Trump now needs 26 more points to reach 270 and win the election.

    He's currently at 244.

    Wisconsin looks almost certain to go for Trump and Pennsylvania about to be called for Trump... so...

    Looks like the world will now have to deal with a President Trump.
