Live Blogging 2012 Presidential Election Results And Exit Polls

By Susan Duclos

[Update] Networks have projected that Barack Obama has won reelection.

The 2012 Presidential Election Day is here and I will be live blogging the exit poll data as it is released and the results for each state as officials are tallying and releasing results, until the final results and projected winners are announced.

Exit polling:  At 11 a.m. today, representatives from news organizations ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox and the AP were all put in a "quarantine room" to go over exit poll data as it comes in. No phones or Internet available to them until the quarantine is lifted and they can then start releasing information to their organizations for public release. Six hours after the quarantine started they will be allowed to report general trends but cannot report the full results of exit polls until the polls close.

5 ET- Preliminary reports from the exit polling data shows that six in ten voters say the economy is the number one issue facing the nation. More believe things are getting worse or are stagnating than those that believe the nation's economy is on the mend. Just 25 percent believe they are better off than they were four years ago.

State data closely matches the national numbers.
