NBC is calling Illinois before the polls are closed there… CNN is waiting.  Different comments from the analysts, but personally I hate to see projections before polls are closed.

Granted the projections are coming from exit polls, but as we’ve seen in past elections, early projections can impact late voter turnout, which can impact other races.

The projections themselves are identical, which should be the case.

We’re watching CNN right now and monitoring NBC here on the widget at TCR (go to the Home Page).  CNN says they are being “conservative” and not calling Pennsylvania yet since no precincts have reported.  But they called South Carolina for McCain while the reported votes are in favor of Obama.
