5. Probably not...


But it'd be nice.

Virginia is the most likely state to be called for Clinton of the three you mentioned around poll closing. But don't anticipate Florida to be called until well into the evening. Here's the time it's been called the last four presidential elections:

2012: Called on Nov. 10th, 2012 - four days after the presidential election.
2008: Called at 11:16 PM - three hours and sixteen minutes after polls closed.
2004: Called at 12:27 a.m - four hours and twenty-seven minutes after polls closed.
2000: Called officially, and without any renouncing, on Dec. 12th, 2000 - over a month after the presidential election.

The earliest it's been called was during Obama's landslide, and even then it was hours after closing time before it was called.
