Polls Close Soon in Two Key States
We should learn a good bit about this election soon after polls close at 6 p.m. EST in Indiana and Kentucky. House districts in these evangelical-heavy states will give some hints about whether the Democrats will sweep into power, slink into power, or somehow blow a perfect storm of Republican mishaps. These are the exit polls I want to see: Which values did these heartland evangelicals vote? Did they stick with opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage? Or did concerns about Iraq, the economy, or scandal trump the 2004 Republican gameplan?
