Bush hasn’t won…yet

Well I stayed up until about 5 am this morning. At that point most everybody was calling Ohio in favor of Bush. Now, it looks like Ohio, New Mexico, and Iowa are too close to call. The current count is 254 votes Bush, 252 votes Kerry. Whoever wins Ohio and its 20 electoral votes wins the election. Bush leads the popular vote by 136,22 so it looks like Bush will win. However, no offical statements have been made at this point.

I hope Kerry will win, but that looks unlikely.

Update: According to CNN as well as local Boston TV station WCVB, Kerry conceded around 10 am this morning and will make a speech at 1 pm in Boston.

  1. Hi Dan,

    I’m preparing a presentation on blogging for some librarians in NC so was trying to find some library blogs in other states (besides my own) and I came across yours. I like the name so I decided to check it out.

    Turns out we are birds of a feather. You may enjoy my election 2004 posts. I notice you haven’t managed to post since the debacle. You’ve got to get back on that horse….
