Early Start Instant Poll: Who do you think will win the presidency today?

From "This Just In" blog:

The first presidential election results are in – and it's a tie.

President Barack Obama and his Republican rival, Mitt Romney, each received five votes in Dixville Notch, New Hampshire.

The town in the state's northeast corner has opened its polls shortly after midnight each election day since 1960 – but today's tie was the first in its history. The town, home to about a dozen residents, has drawn national media attention for being the first place in the country to make its presidential preferences known.

The result in Dixville Notch is hardly a reliable bellwether for the eventual winner of the White House – or even the result statewide. Although the community typically leans Republican, residents went for Obama in 2008 – the first time the majority of folks in Dixville Notch went for a Democrat in 40 years.

This morning, we're asking you to look into your personal crystal ball to tell us who you think will win the presidency today. Vote in our poll below.

    I am afraid that we won't know for sure for several days. As reported, the legal aspects have already begun. I think Mitt Romney will win the Presidency. People want the fast and easy fix. The " I want it right NOW" mentality. Regardless of how attainable or realistic that might be. I do have a question , though, is Romney winning Mass.?
