Exit Polls, Early Results, Etc.

We’ll try to keep this post open for early results as they come in. No doubt, there will be plenty of issues with spin and “fog of war,” so take these for what they’re worth — and if your polling place is still open but you haven’t voted yet, stop reading and hit it.

Exit polls from Drudge, 3:00 PM PDT:

Arkansas: Boozman (R) defeats Lincoln (D)

Ohio: Portman (R) defeats Fisher (D)

North Dakota: Hoeven (R) defeats Potter (D)

Wisconsin: Johnson (R) defeats Feingold (D)

From Breaking News:

Dan Burton, GOP, elected U.S. House, District 5, Indiana.

Jamie Dupree, Cox Radio:

Early returns from Indiana Senate, Coats (R) up 55-40%; early from Kentucky Senate Paul (R) up 57-43%

Mark Hemingway, Washington Examiner (3:20 PM PDT):

CNN calls IN-5 and IN-6 for Burton and Pence.

Josh Kraushaar of the Hotline:

Exit polls show Rubio +21 in #FLSEN

Update 3:40 PDT: Drudge is calling IL 49-43 Kirk over Alexi Giannoulias.

Update: 5:18 PDT (sorry for the lag — I needed to go vote as well!) From Instapundit:

FOX CALLS FLORIDA FOR RUBIO. Connecticut called for Blumenthal. Delaware for Coons. New Hampshire for Ayotte. Missouri for Roy Blunt over Robin Carnahan, whose ObamaCare support killed her. Mikulski to hold on in Maryland despite last-minute revelations of a fling with Matt Labash. (Heck — that sealed the deal for her!) Shelby in Alabama.

At Hot Air, the first Humpbot sighting of the night for Rubio, plus this:

Here’s one to please grassroots righties: Tom Perriello, who defended his ObamaCare and stimulus votes and brought The One in to campaign him last week, is reportedly kaput. That’s not an official call, but he’s eight points down with 63 percent reporting. Meanwhile, right next door in Virginia, Rick Boucher still trails by six with 69 percent reporting. That’s a huge bellwether if it holds; now we’re looking at something in the neighborhood of 65 seats or more.

More as it comes in.

Update (6:01 PDT): Since this afternoon, I’ve been part of gang contributing to the PJM election post, where I was duplicating much of my material from here. Rather than cutting and pasting back and forth, just click here and keep refreshing for regular updates.

One last update (6:10 PDT): On Twitter, Josh Kraushaar of the Hotline reports, “NBC says the House will flip to the GOP — first to call it.”
