  • Yep. It's the Electoral votes that matter in the end. As the news stations "call" each race (and they can be wrong!), they will post the proper number of votes for each candidate. So far each has 1 state but McCain's state is bigger so it has more electoral votes.

  • No it means what has been counted in certain states that McCain appears to be winning those states. Nothing the media says about who is or who isn't ahead means anything yet. It is like counting all the m&m's in a bag by color. If you count all the green ones first you might assume there are more green ones. But in the end when you count them all there may be more red ones.
