Live Update

CNN has given Iowa to Obama. Big, big blow to Romney.

Earlier, NBC gives California, Hawaii, Washington, to Obama.

North Carolina, Idaho and Montana, to Romney.

228 electoral votes to Obama, 176 to Romney, says CNN. SKY has it 244-203.

Comparing the Jewish vote now and four years ago is going to be interesting. If it is 68% for Obama this time, that would be a fall of about 6 percent. Ira Sheskin, the nonpartisan demographer, says it was around 74% last time.

Unlike Romney, Obama is said to have prepared two speeches. Unlike Romney, it looks increasingly likely, he will get to deliver the victory one.

Word is that Obama is somewhere near his pulsing, packed, delirious Chicago HQ. At Romney’s Boston HQ, by contrast, “you imagine there’s some rewriting of his speech going on now,” says the SKY reporter. “A pretty somber mood for the last hour,” he reports.
