Why call it so early?

The Steele-Cardin race in Maryland is extremely close. Yet, with only 1% of the precincts in (earlier this evening), everyone called the race for Cardin.

What in the heck was that? ONE PERCENT OF THE PRECINCTS in and they call it??? How many voters did that discourage over here on the West Coast?

I am watching Fox News and Michael Barone was giving Fox's reasons for calling it that way but it all sounded like SPECULATION to me. Why not wait for some actual evidence, rather than basing it off of Bob Ehrlich's numbers a few years ago?

Seems quite irresponsible to me. I'm glad Michael Steele hasn't conceded.

See the numbers at Michelle Malkin.
