  • Off on a Tangent can now project that President George W. Bush (R) has won reelection with at least 274 electoral votes. This projection is based on a careful examination of mainstream media projections and official returns.
  • Senator John Kerry (D-MA) has not yet conceded the contentious battleground state of Ohio, but Bush leads there by at least two percent (over 100,000 votes) with all precincts reporting. While there are still many provisional and absentee ballots outstanding, they will not be enough to swing the election in Kerry’s favor.
  • In addition, Off on a Tangent can project that the Republican party will gain seats in both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Exact numbers will come when they are available. Of note, Senate minority leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) has lost his reelection bid to Republican John Thune.
