The last electoral vote anticipated (it's not Missouri)

Forget Missouri; it is narrowly going to John McCain.

48 hours later and we are still awaiting the final word from Omaha, Nebraska. Nebraska (along with Maine) apportions its electoral votes separately, in contrast to the rest of the nation, which apportions electoral votes in a winner-take-all fashion.

Various outlets, e.g., KPTM-TV and Nate Silver's are reminding us that final returns have not been released for Omaha area Second Congressional District. is predicting the Omaha district will choose Obama. He cited a report by "The Omaha World-Herald," of early ballots for Obama. (The rest of the state of Nebraska has gone for McCain.)
