Default Election results from first closed precinct in the country!!!!....... Obama wins!

This very conservative town of 21 in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire votes at midnight and they are the first to show results on November 4th.

Obama landslide!

This is the first time since 1968 that the village voted Democratic in an election!!!!

15 votes for Obama, six for McCain

Past two elections:

2004

Bush 19
Kerry 7

2000
Bush 21
Gore 5

Was CNN typical when they declared Bush and the other Republicans winners since 1968?

Or are they just being typical because Obama won?

Let's just say I don't hold the Clinton News Network in high regard.

Default Obama wins Dixville Notch, New Hampshire!

Dixville Notch is historically the first town in the United States to report election results. Residents gather in the local resort hotel to vote just before Midnight, with polls closing at 12:01 A.M.

Dixville Notchians have voted 15-6 in Obama's favor. This is the first time a Democrat has won in Dixville Notch since 1968.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come!

Obama '08
