2012 Presidential Election Results: Where to Watch as They Come In

Hot List 2

presidential electionUnless you're completely removed from society, it will be pretty hard to not stumble upon election coverage on the 2012 Presidential Election tomorrow night. This whole Obama/Romney race is kind of a big deal. But, since I am here to make your life easier, more efficient, and less annoying, here are the best, easiest-to-navigate places to watch election night returns. Get cozy, everyone. Could be a long night.

Stiff drink optional.


ABC. Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos will be anchoring, while Barbara Walters will be offering historical perspective, and Katie Couric will be taking care of social media.

NBC. Brian Williams will be leading the team on this network. Savannah Guthrie and Tom Brokaw will be reporting, as well.

CBS. Scott Pelley of CBS News will also be anchoring his first Election Night broadcast.

Fox Business Network. FBN will be providing live continuous election night coverage on Tuesday, November 6, starting at 5PM.

C-SPAN. If you can't stomach anything Fox, and don't want to go "mainstream", head on over to C-SPAN for up-to-the-minute coverage. 

MSNBC. Another great place for election news, as it breaks.

CNN. Anderson Cooper. and Wolf Blitzer covering. Need we say more?


Everybody has their favorite political websites, but a few sure to have top notch presidential coverage are:


The Daily Beast


The Stir -- duh!

And, of course, if you're more of an old school kind-of-person, you can always hop in your car and listen to NPR. A nice, long drive around town might be exactly what you need tomorrow night. 

How are you spending election night?

Oh, I love these soda cans! They are so adorable! I can't decide between NBC (I love Savannah Guthrie) or CNN (I love Anderson Cooper).

An article that should be simple info on where you can watch the election results and the writer has to diss Fox.  Honest to God, the bias even on "mom" websites if truly ridiculous.
