History repeats itself

Well S&P futures are trading at 1146 on globex but it looks a bit premature. So far the map is a repeat of 2000 with the exception of New Hampshire which has switched to Kerry. NBC has given Ohio to Bush but the Dems are not going to concede it. There was already some legal wrangling there with make shift ballots being handed out to people standing in lines and polls being kept open later than planned.

The oddest thing about it is that the NBC seems to be expecting Kerry to concede even though the vote difference in Ohio seems quite small relative to numbers for absentee ballots and provisional ballots. Andrea Mitchell is now saying that the provisional ballots are greater than the difference.
