I get some thoughts now on wealthy we can expect this evening from syndicated columnist.
Washington good evening Charles.
Well -- let me just say that a and one thing that we can predict unequivocally.
-- -- -- barring a hanging Chad or two here -- there.
We can be sure that our long national nightmare will be over.
And that means the election but you know we've been talking about these -- These exit polls I'm not sure how much say and if -- on either side you can -- a little bit of solace for Obama of course is the fact that.
The wrong track number which was pretty high is a little bit lower now than it was but these but these -- early returns and I suspect it will be up -- -- the safety.
Percent range by the end of the evening.
But for Romney I think there's something interest in which I think the -- alluded to I was also struck.
By the fact that in the Virginia numbers and Virginia's one of the two really key states here.
The other being of course Ohio.
Government workers -- -- him a majority of them went for Romney 51% which I'm not sure you have expected now they are concentrated.
In the northern part of his state which is what Obama will it will depend on.
To carry him through and I think if you already have.
Romney with a majority of government workers that bodes well for Romney so I think either side can look at the numbers are so preliminary and there's so.
Say give me a question and I'm not sure it points anywhere right now I think all we know it -- be over tomorrow and as of now it's as tight as we thought it was yesterday.
Charles I'm not even sure that we really know that I mean this some of these states are so tight that it may not be over tomorrow but you never know -- hanging Chad in two years Israelis there's always that that we can have another nightmare.
What do you think.
You know you talk a lot about Virginia because it's early in the night and will tell us a lot.
But but other states that you think throughout the evening really will paint this battle tonight about the path you talked about yesterday draft.
For Romney as you said.
Well look everybody of course after we get the first wave -- the Florida and Virginia and New Hampshire is gonna look at Ohio which goes -- have passed seven.
But I remind you Ohio is -- slightly -- state because of the fact that the auto industry the bailout is a factor that stands out there.
And because Obama -- Obama has poured in so much negative ads starting in the spring in the summer.
So there aren't even if Ohio.
Doesn't go Romney you've got the -- the Romney firewire I think is elsewhere.
I -- about that last night that's Wisconsin.
Iowa and Colorado you take those three you don't need Ohio you know he -- at New Hampshire you don't need anything other than the south.
So I think that's a secondary -- it's out there but -- won't start to come until 9 o'clock.
Charles thank you.
