    Too close to call

    What does "Too close to call" mean? That it is impossible for one to be able to decide which one of two things is better, bigger, etc. because they have that quality to the same extent?

    Re: Too close to call

    It's normally used when it's impossible to say who's going to win, so an election could be too close to call, to predict.
