Dixville Notch Surprise: Obama!

For the first time in forty years, a Democrat has won the Presidential vote in the the tiny New Hampshire village of Dixville Notch. Here are the results, just announced a few moments ago:

Barack Obama: 15 votes

John McCain: 6 votes

Ralph Nader: 0 votes

The last Democrat to win in Dixville Notch was Hubert Humphrey in 1968. See our earlier post about this quaint New England village's tradition of voting at midnight and counting the votes immediately.
