    Last night, Kornacki almost decided to get a nap in, but instead he and his map stayed up:

    Forget grabbing sleep, there's still votes coming in in PA. I'm heading back to the studio. In the old days, there was USA Up All Night. Tonight, it'll be MSNBC Up All Night. Come on along for the ride.

    At the time of this post, there have been 120K tweets about him and he has gained 163K new followers on Twitter this week alone. He also has his own hashtag: "#TrackingKornacki."

    Seriously, like the Energizer Bunny, he just keeps going and going and going:

    My attempt to give @SteveKornacki a break lasted for 10 minutes. I think he went to the bathroom, returned and told me I’m free to go to sleep. That dude is a machine #Trackingkornaki

    And going and going and going:

    I’ve known @SteveKornacki for years now and I can honestly say I’ve never seen him eat or drink. There’s been some reporting he may be a robot. #TrackingKornacki

    Naturally, the internet has been impressed with Kornacki, and they've dubbed him everything from "chartthrob" to "map daddy." Here are some of the best tweets:

    At this point the only reason they’re not calling it is that they want to see how long Steve Kornacki can stay awake.
