Does the election end tonight? CNN Contributors Ana Navarro and Roland Martin weigh potential vote splits

After a whirlwind of an election season, today is finally the day Americans decide who will be sitting in the oval office for the next four years.

Some early polling stations are just opening up in states around the country. CNN Contributor and Republican Strategist Ana Navarro and CNN Political Analyst Roland Martin join our election coverage and share their Election Day roundup. They weigh the momentum and enthusiasm for the election and attempt to predict whether we will have a clear winner in D.C. tomorrow.

Martin thinks the winner will emerge tonight. “I don’t think it’s gonna drag on,” he says. “I don’t forsee Florida in 2000.”

However, there are already legal challenges and long lines at the polls in Florida today to imply a delay before the decision comes out.

“I don’t think it’s gonna be close enough for us to be recount,” Navarro interjects. She’s optimistic there won’t be a recount because “a recount finding is very divisive, long, difficult process,” Navarro says. “My hope is that this is over, if not tonight, at least tomorrow morning.”

Martin offers another distinction between the 2000 and the 2012 race. “The other difference is that the western states are gonna play key as well. And that’s Nevada and Colorado. We weren’t talking about those states in 2000, 2004.”

    Who the heck is Anna Navarro. I was highly upset with her comment, "The President BETTER do something regarding the Hispanic population. I am a Conservative Independent. I believe that something has to be done about ILLEGAL Immigration (What part of ILLEGAL some Hispanics and others do not understand) but to think the President owes them something. If it was not for the White and African American the President would not have been reelected Yes! Like some Americans, I wish those that are illegal could be shipped the hell out of this country and forget any part of the Dream Act because when you break the law there are consequences. Since I cannot have my way in this conversation, before you start saying what the President should do, fix your own people problem FIRST then the rest of the world. I am so sick of Hispanics who feel that because they want a better life, everyone does, that you can ener this country illegally and think you deserve something. I would like to debate Ms Anna Navarro because she has no pull or standing. She is a contributor. Any jackass could have done what she did.
