Expect the Unexpected in Florida 

Looking back to 2008, 4.5 percent of votes in Florida weren't counted on Election Night, and the 2000 election hinged upon the results of a massive ballot recount there. Because Florida's more Democrat-leaning precincts are typically the last places to report, an early lead for Romney could turn into a dead heat. (Photo: Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
