Here is what to look for in the exit polls:

On the day before Americans head to the polls to vote for a new president, a 2007 video featuring GOP candidate Mitt Romney discussing his Mormon faith has resurfaced on YouTube, rekindling a discussion on religion which he has mostly avoided in this political cycle.
"I don't like coming on the air and having you go after my church and me," Romney told Jan Mickelson on the conservative WHO-AM in Des Moines radio show in the August 2007 video while he was seeking the 2008 GOP nomination. "I'm not running as a Mormon, and I get a little tired of coming on shows like yours and having it all about Mormon."
Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has refused to be drawn into discussions about Mormonism, focusing his campaign on the economy and domestic and foreign policy issues. When it comes to issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage, he has sided with the Mormon teachings, without explicitly identifying them as the reason for his stance. more >>
SANFORD, Fla. – Mitt Romney began his final day of campaigning by addressing a standing room only crowd in an airport hangar in central Florida Monday morning. Chants of "one more day" reverberated from those who arrived in the early morning hours to help give their candidate one extra push to capture the must-win Sunshine State.
Romney took the podium just a couple of minutes before 9 a.m. for the first of five stops before voters go to the polls on Tuesday to end what has been a grueling and hard-fought 16-month campaign.
Romney was introduced by Rep. Connie Mack (R-Fla.) who is hoping to move to the upper chamber in his quest to win one of Florida's two Senate seats. Former governor Jeb Bush, who still gets shouts of admiration and current Gov. Rick Scott warmed up the crowd before Romney took center stage. more >>
The Washington Redskins lost on Sunday to the Carolina Panthers and if history is any indication, that is not a good sign for President Obama.
It has been called the "Redskins Rule" and it has successfully predicted presidential elections dating back all too way 1940, with the exception of 2004, when George W. Bush defeated John Kerry.
The rule is fairly simple: if the Redskins win on the Sunday before Election Day, the party that won the popular vote in the prior election will win the Electoral College in the upcoming election. If the Redskins lose, the incumbent will not win reelection. more >>
This presidential election season has seen some of the largest contributions ever made to a specific candidate and is already on pace to be the most expensive election of all time.
Both campaigns combined are on pace to spend more than $1 billion on ads and already the campaigns and outside groups have combined to spend $968 million, according to NBC News/SMG Delta.
In just the last week alone there has been a staggering $143 million spent on ads across the country, but predominantly in those crucial swing states, with Ohio being the most hotly contested of them. more >>
