Welcome. Watch for some fodder from early exit polls after 5 p.m. ET.
First "exit poll" fodder: Economy was No. 1 on voters' minds.

As it attempted to land today in Albuquerque, Republican presidential nominee John McCain's jet had to abort the approach because of traffic on the runway, the Chicago Tribune's The Swamp blog reports.

USA Today On Politics: More from the early exit poll results: 62% said they decided whether to support Democrat Barack Obama or Republican John McCain sometime before September. Of the rest, just 6% made up their minds in the last week.
USA Today On Politics:

Taxes will rise whether the next president is Republican John McCain or Democrat Barack Obama, most of the voters surveyed earlier today as they left voting places told pollsters. According to the early "exit polls," which a news media consortium commissioned and which USA TODAY has purchased information from:

• 70% said taxes will go up if Obama is elected.

• 61% said taxes will go up if McCain is elected.

"Yes We Can. Thank you, God bless you, and may God Bless the United States of America."
