Live Update

Here is a completely unrepresentative sample of two Jewish Florida seniors who have spoken to the Times of Israel about their own vote. One voted for Romney today, the other for Obama.

Dr. Irwin Pasternak, 76, of Hallandale Beach, Florida, voted Romney “because he’s a good friend of Netanyahu. Obama didn’t like him at all.” Pasternak is no knee-jerk Republican, he adds. “I voted for Clinton twice.”

The Obama voter asked not to be named, but said she felt “Obama has a Jewish platform. He supports Israel. I believe all Americans should have healthcare. What Romney wants to do with social security is awful.”

For the challenger, “It looks like lost cause,” says Arad Nir, at Romney HQ.

“The feeling here is that it’s over,” reports Yonit Levy from Obama’s HQ in Chicago.

It looks like “David Axelrod does not have to shave off his mustache,” says NBC of the Obama strategist. Axelrod himself says he’s upbeat about Ohio and Virginia, and “very hopeful” about the outcome overall. Obama’s decision “to intervene to save the American auto industry… has been a key to the economic revival.”

Susan Rice is likely to be the next Secretary of State, Channel 2 suggests. Not sure how well that would go down with the Senate, says Meridor, unpersuaded.
