Signs, including early exit polling, are looking decent for John McCain pulling off a surprise comeback win in Virginia. There’s not a lot of hard data at this point, but of the previously red states that the Obama campaign put a full court press on Virgina was the prime battleground. Going into today it was anywhere from Obama up 5% to a tossup, so a McCain win would be a dramatic reversal. Late breakers in Virgina are going to McCain and his success will depend on winning Loudoun and Prince William counties convincingly, which I think is a possibility.
So, the question up for discussion is whether an early win in Virginia would influence any western states that are still close or if it would shake things up elsewhere?
Update: McCain lost Loudoun and Prince William counties which cost him the state.
