If It's Tuesday, There's a Primary Somewhere...

This week Indiana and North Carolina are up. Come on Hoosiers and Tarheels...bring this thing home for Obama! I will post returns here as they come in. Feel free to follow along and post your predictions in the comments.

Update at 7:30pm: NBC and CNN call North Carolina for Obama - no numbers yet. Clinton is currently leading in Indiana 57% - 43% with 20% of precincts reporting. Stay tuned. PS MSNBC calling Obama's win in NC HUGE! WooHoo!

Update at 8:50pm: Indiana still too early to call. With 63% of the votes counted, Clinton is leading Obama 54% -46%. According to Chuck Todd, NBC numbers guru, the precincts still not reporting are strong Obama areas. Here's hoping for a very tight race or an outright win. At this point it's possible...either way, a great night for Barack!

Update at 10:00pm: Word is that the Indiana numbers won't be in til 11:00pm (maybe midnight) - I really think Obama's going to pull this off. If he does it's over.

Update at 11:45pm: Wow. Looks like Lake County is breaking 75/25 for Obama, with votes still not reported. If that trend continues, Obama wins. Just 9% left to come in, but that 9% could decide the nominee. This is great stuff!

Update at 1:00am: Hillary declared the winner in Indiana by a small margin, 51% - 49%. Whatever. Doesn't matter.

poe's predictions: I think Obama takes North Carolina by 9 points, and they split Indiana roughly 50/50. I'm going to go out on a limb here to say that after tonight it's essentially over. Fingers crossed...

I hope Obama takes them both! I predict Obama by 10 in North Carolina (I like double digits)and Clinton wins Indiana by only 5. I hope the gas tax issue backfires on Clinton. Siding with McCain should be a wake up call about Clinton and help people appreciate Obama's courage to stand for what is right!

Hey, looking at the numbers right now, he could take them both. Indiana is tightening by the minute! Woohoo!
