To see what your electoral map looks like; Click Here.
Please post your map, if you know how, or the resulting numbers with "Swing State" explanations if you don't.

My prediction looks like this:

If you don't know how to do a screen capture, but want to; do this:
Hold down the control key and look in the upper right side above your letter keys for "Print Screen SysRq" or "Prnt Scrn" or something to that effect and hit it.
Next, open a new file in "Paint" (Probably Start/Programs/Accessories/Paint).
Next under Edit, select Paste.
Next, under File, select "save as" give it a name, and be to sure choose JPEG where it says Save as Type.
Next, open that file in your photo editor and crop off the excess crap.
Next, go to Imageshack.us by clicking HERE.
Next choose "Browse" and locate the picture of your map on your computer.
Next, untick the check box for the advertising above where it says "Host it", then choose "Host it".
Next, scroll about half way down the page, untick the check box that says "Include details" and copy the code in the box where it says "Hotlink for forums (1) "
Paste this in your reply and your map should show up when you preview it.
(You can now make screenshots of whatever you wish.)

@H2O MAN,
How come you don't have Sen McCain winning PA?
How many Electoral votes does that add up to?

@OCCOM BILL,
I won't bother to post a new map, but I'm going for your map plus GA and IN in Obama's corner for 390 total.

@realjohnboy,
Laughing I wondered the same, with that much optimism. So H2O has it 286-252, McCain. (Scary how red that middle has to get for such a narrow margin)(Well, comforting, really).

What say you RJB?

@engineer,
390-148 . Wow! That's optimistic! 242 margin has to be some kind of record, prediction-wise.

@OCCOM BILL,
Thanks, Bill. I thought about doing H-2-0' s tally for him, but it looked like a lot of work.

Well, probably b/c that's the 2004 electoral map, iirc.

He didn't use your calculator, it comes from somewhere else.

I don't predict Obama will win more than 320 ev's. But I'd love to be wrong.

where today's post ends with ...

Quote:
While the polls have narrowed as they traditionally do McCain still faces an uphill struggle and Obama has maintained and even increased his national lead. Assuming the polls are correct when all the votes are counted Obama may have a narrow popular vote win and a potential electoral vote blowout.

However in an election year where so many people have voted early, African Americans are voting in historic numbers, young people continue to threaten to vote in massive numbers, there is an unpopular war, a near financial collapse and where there is an African American male heading a major party ticket the uniqueness of this race is hard to gauge.

But at seemingly every critical moment of this race Obama has responded to the challenge and with the ultimate challenge set for Tuesday it is hard to say it is not his moment.

Actually, my forecast (and I did not fail a state during the primaries), as for today is:
Obama wins Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada.
The battle will be very close in Florida, Ohio and North Carolina.
Missouri & Indiana will end up in McCain's account.
Pennsylvania will be blue, but surprinsingly close.

That would leave Obama with 294, McCain with 185 electoral votes.

If you want to push me even harder, I'll say Obama will win Florida and Ohio. McCain will keep North Carolina.

And that'd be... lemme see...: Obama 338, McCain 200 votes.




I stand by my October 29th predictions.

@nimh,
Do you see a map where VA, OH, IA, CO, NM and NV are blue, and no other states that Bush won in 2004? End result Obama 311, McCain 227?

That's my prediction.

If that does indeed work, that would mean you dont have to go through the print screen business to share your personal map. Just go here, click the "Your Map" tab, make your own map, and then click on the blue button on the left that says "Share link to this map". And post the URL you get here.

I don't have an opinion on Indiana or Ohio but I don't think Obama's going to carry Florida.

I'm going to post something when I get back from class (and I have to think about Florida some more - I keep moving it back and forth).

317-221 for now (blue over red - I keep forgetting that the U.S. colours are backwards)

@OCCOM BILL,
There is another thread entitled "Join Us Here Tuesday Night." Very similar in focus but with a bit more analysis. No need to have both of them. If there is a way to move some of the stuff from there to here, that would be great.
I am going to predict Obama - 367 ... McCain - 157.
I see Obama winning in NC, FL, MO, and either ND or MN (if that is the abbreviation for Montana).
