More exit poll info:

Exit Polls: The role of government
By: CNN's Rebecca Sinderbrand

(CNN) – Voters in both parties are upset with how activist the government's been: Two out of three Democrats say it isn't doing enough. And four in five Republicans say it's doing too much.

Sixty-one percent of Democrats say the new health care law needs to be expanded. And 82 percent of Republicans say it should be repealed.

@nprpolitics 73% of voters in early exit polls disapprove of the job Congress has been doing.

@nprpolitics Republicans and Democrats both got 53% "disapproval" ratings in early exit polls.

Re: wendersfan's election results thread

The Associated Press reports that three Republicans -- Hal Rogers of Kentucky and Mike Pence and Dan Burton of Indiana -- will win a trip to Washington, D.C., to serve in the 112th Congress. All were overwhelming favorites, but Republicans are up 3-0 so far.

I'll start with MSNBC - watching Olbermann should, for once, be entertaining.

I'm watching PBS, but my wife is ready to switch to MSNBC if I let down my guard for a second.

Exit Polls: Kentucky voters

(CNN) – Half of Kentucky's voters have at least some reservations about the candidate they backed in tonight's Senate faceoff, according to early exit polls. They may not be sure how much they like the candidate they back - but they're a lot more confident about someone who isn't on the ballot tonight.

Seventy-eight percent of Democrat Jack Conway's voters dislike Sarah Palin - who stumped for Paul this fall - while 73 percent of Republican Rand Paul's voters are Palin fans.

And that was fast.

Here's hoping that Rand completely used the GOP machine to help him win and now breaks away from many of their standard positions. I'm doubtful, but one can hope.

No complaints, as long as you don't start posting in tweet format yourself.

Re: wendersfan's election results thread

Rand Paul is projected as winner by Fox
They also projected a senate winner pickup in Indiana with Coats.

Ooooh - even better Rachel Maddow's opinion on Rand. She's not happy. Her face says it all.

Rachel Maddow now ripping on Evan Bayh.

This is very entertaining.

Re: wendersfan's election results thread

Dems doing horribly in Indiana. Looks like both Hill and Donnelly probably going down.

I think I was wrong; it is going to be a 60 seat gain.
