Preliminary Verdict on the Bradley Effect

One of the big questions going into this election night was whether the Bradley Effect was real in this day and age.

My verdict from the preliminary results so far:
Obama has significantly underperformed his poll numbers in Georgia
Virginia is a slightly closer than the polls going in showed
And there was plenty of polling both states to get a good read

Other than that, things are more or less proceeding according to recent polls.

So I guess the answer to the question is, only in isolated pockets of the country.
