Leading indicators...

The votes are in, in Dixville Notch and Hart's Location, New Hampshire. Not only did Obama win, it was an historic landslide. 

In Dixville Notch, which last voted Democrat when Hubert Humphrey ran against Richard Nixon in 1968, Obama won an astounding 76% of the votes. Meanwhile, up the road in Hart's Location, which has never voted Democrat, ever, Obama won 59% of the local votes. 

Obama might have taken 69% in Hart's Location, except for the curmudgeonly local libertarians who gave Ron Paul 10% of their votes -- even though he wasn't even on the ballot. New Hampshire is one of the few states in the Union that still maintains a true democracy, where every vote is counted. Sadly most states now ignore votes for write-in candidates. 

Go New Hampshire! Live Free or Die.
