UPDATE 6:54 pm – Here are some exit poll numbers.

As always, I’ll be live blogging Virginia’s election results as they come in tonight (polls close at 7 pm – make sure you stay in line and cast your ballot!), with results from the State Board of Elections, the Fairfax County Board of Elections, VPAP, etc. [also, check this out] I’ll also be keeping an eye on Twitter feeds from Virginia political gurus like Not Larry Sabato (Ben Tribbett) and others (e.g., Dave WassermanJ. Miles ColemanChaz Nuttycombe).

By the way, according to these tweets by Charles “Chaz” Nuttycombe, he “should be able to call a winner in Virginia within the hour after polls close” and “should be able to map out the initial results by locality as they come in,” so definitely check out his Twitter feed tonight. Ben “Not Larry Sabato” Tribbett, who has been tweeting all day in expectation of a Biden blowout win, responded to Nuttycombe, “Call it at 7. This isn’t close.” We’ll see soon enough!

One big question tonight is whether the final Virginia polls before the primary – which had Joe Biden up by a big margin over Bernie Sanders, with Mike Bloomberg and Elizabeth Warren trailing – will turn out to be accurate or not. And, beyond Virginia, will Biden’s momentum coming out of Saturday’s blowout win in South Carolina continue, or will it fizzle out? We’ll find out shortly. We’ll also see, after Super Tuesday, whether any other candidates drop out of the race, assuming they don’t do well tonight.
