Will the Presidential Election will be settled tonight?

I don't think it's going to happen. I think it's going to be REALLY close, and whatever side comes out on top, the other side will whine and complain and bring out the lawyers. I'm not expecting it to be pretty...

I believe it'll be settled tonight, I don't believe it's going to be as close of an election as the polls indicate.

I think as long as ALL the news outlets wait until ALL the polls are closed before calling the election for ANYONE, it should work out fine. But I can't see that happening. I mean, it's America. Is anything ever easy?

It's the undecideds that will ultimately determine it. Which way will they swing? Left, right, left, right.....we'll just have to see

I want to say that it will be settled tonight. The polls that have been taken the past several weeks only polled "likely voters." That is, people who have voted in the past. However, since this election will see a record number of first time voters, I'm hoping that the election won't be as close as the polls say it's going to be.

But the pessimist in me believes that the final count will be contended and we'll see a repeat of Election Day 2000. Here's hoping I'm wrong!

Yes. I think what happened in 2000 will not be repeated.

I totally agree. For the good of the country, I would like to see it settled tonight. But I would bet it wouldn't be.

I know I'm not from the US, but from what I have read I don't think it will be.
