As if watching the returns come in later tonight wouldn't be enough to give me a heart attack, one data company has decided to provide a live analysis before the polls even close >.<

Note the disclaimers against taking anything from the numbers at one point; after all, Clinton leads in Florida but is behind in Pennsylvania at the moment, and the odds of her winning Florida while losing Pennsylvania are pretty slim. http://www.slate.com...

But we will not exchange with them
Our virtue for their wealth, since one abides always,
While riches change their owners every day." - Solon, Plutarch's "Life of Solon"

The only real question now is "Will Trump lose by a narrow margin or by a landslide?"

Fl is 100% Trump. The red counties outnumber the remaining blue counties.

48/51% with 4% of the vote in. Not so fast, it's up for grabs.
