Check out this Election Day scorecard: Politico offers a “quick list of benchmarks insiders will use to predict the evening’s winners and losers.” A sample:
“SIGN MCCAIN IS IN HOT WATER. If Obama wins any one of the following states: Ohio (7:30 p.m.), Virginia (7 p.m.), North Carolina (7:30 p.m.) or Florida (8 p.m.).
“SIGN MCCAIN IS COOKED. If Obama wins two of them.
“OBAMAPOCALYPSE. Obama is more or less finished if he loses Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida — with the stat wizards at FiveThirtyEight.com giving him only a 9.76 percent chance of victory if he loses the battleground trifecta.”
