By this point in election night in 2012, President Obama had been declared the winner in Pennsylvania. Mitt Romney had been declared the winner in North Carolina.
Neither state has been called so far tonight, nor has just about any other state that will be key to winning the White House.
On balance, it's more cause for apprehension for Democrats than Republicans as they had expected some of their blue firewall states — Pennsylvania and Michigan among them — to be squared away. Perhaps Virginia as well, which at least is trending late toward Hillary Clinton.
Add Iowa and Nevada now to the too-close-to-call list at this hour, as the polls have closed in those key states. Utah, the state where a third-party candidate is a real player, is also undeclared so far.
Hang on to your hats, everyone. This could be a late night.
