Well, it seems it's all over bar the shouting. I'm keen to see the final swing, and also the makeup of the senate and the house. I'm pretty sure that even despite my interest in this election, I still know more about the Australian political system than the American one.

I found out the skinny on how Maine and Nebraska split their electoral college votes; they don't get many, but 2 of 'em go to the overall winner, plus one to the winner in each "congressional district". Not a huge difference, but slightly better if you're voting against the state-wide favourite.

As for our Objectivist friend, Thomas Robert Stevens, he seems to have dropped off the chart - that 3.8% must have been from some very skewed partial data. Either that, or you just can't trust Fox News, whose interactive map gave me that weird and wonderful number. I wonder which one it is?
