Election news

Today's best election coverage? No question, it's from Scottish journalist Alex Massie, who is simultaneously liveblogging the elections and the English national cricket team's test match against New Zealand. Thus we get delightful observations such as this:

11.06: Mark Halperin posts details of a Fox News exit poll. On the question of who's best placed to beat the GOP nominee:

Ohio — Obama 52, Clinton 44
Texas — Obama 52, Clinton 41

11.11 Monty on to bowl!

and

3.09: Still no returns from Cleveland or Cincinnati. Hillary's current 19 point lead in Ohio seems likely to shrink by quite a lot. Texas still running pretty much even, but no results yet from Houston.

3.15: WICKET! Damn, missed it thanks to checking out returns from Texas and Ohio. Poor show. I've let you down readers. But Jason Oram is caught by Cook in the gully for 10.

That's just excellent.
