The major networks all called Pennsylvania for Obama between 8 and 9pm. But the 9pm poll closings were the real moment of truth for Barack Obama. Fox News called traditional blue states Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, and Rhode Island for Barack Obama. Fox also called New Mexico, which went for Bush in 2004, for Obama. If Obama wins the rest of the traditional blue states plus Iowa and Colorado, he will be the next president of the United States.
