A comparison in seven counties where all votes have been counted.

County_______ Deeds ObamaKing & Queen_ 41.0  51.8Prince Edward 44.9  54.3Westmoreland_ 41.4  54.6Wythe________ 27.3  32.9Lexington____ 60.5  62.2Williamsburg_ 54.6  63.8Winchester___ 39.2  52.0AVERAGE______ 44.1  53.1

These counties are actually fairly representative — Obama won 52.6 percent of the vote in Virginia overall — so it looks like Deeds is going down to defeat on the order of 56-44. This is why some of the networks are starting to call the race.
