It continues not to look good for Romney

More results in the key states from the NYT map:

Virginia, with 78 percent reporting, has Romney three percent ahead. So that looks good.

North Carolina, with 93 percent reporting, has Romney leading by 1.6 percent. So that’s looking more promising than before.

Florida, with 91 percent reporting, has Obama up by 0.3 percent, a 21,000 vote margin. Romney could conceivably close that gap with the remaining nine percent of uncounted votes, but it’s tough.

In Ohio, with 62 percent reporting, Obama has a 2.3 percent lead. It’s not looking good for Romney.

UPDATE, 11:02 p.m.: With 92 percent reporting in Florida, Romney is behind by 16,000 votes. So he closed the gap by 5,000 votes with just an additional one percent of precincts reporting. If he continues to close the gap at that rate or even half that rate, he could still win.

In Virginia and N. Carolina, Romney maintains a narrow lead. The NYT map for Ohio and Colorado is on the blink. I don’t feel like turning on Fox to find out what’s happening in Ohio as I don’t want to subject myself to the chatter. This is too terrible an event to be filtered through “conservative” TV personalities telling us that America is still a “center-right” country.

By the way, Drudge is nowhere tonight. He’s not on top of anything.
