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...

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

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