0300 GMT - Obama on the cusp of victory

Obama now adds Ohio, New Mexico as projected wins, 20 and 5 respectively to hit 199. However, both are still with less than half the vote counted. However, if it goes through these are the first two states to fall from the Republicans, should mean an Obama victory.

McCain adds Louisiana with 9 to hit 78

Senate - projected 50 Democrat, 36 Republican, 2 independents (pro Democrat). Democrats will be happy.
House - projected 103 Democrat, 68 Republican. Long way to go yet.

The only ballot declared so far is Massachusetts - on abolishing state income tax - 69% no, with 44% declared.

Thanks for that. Looks like the Mass public servants came out in force for their "two ticks", eh: one for Obama and one for no to the prop!
