Election prediction game!!!

i'm too lazy to type so here's the gif from the CNN Prediction tool

You left out D.C. ^
 
I don't believe it's going to be a landslide. I think it will be closer than any of us may think right now. Honestly? I don't believe that Obama will pass the 300-mark in terms of electoral college votes. But we'll see.
 
Judging from CNN's poll closing time map, I think it will be about 11pm CT when a winner is called.

I agree. My earlier post:

Perhaps I can swap Virginia and Washington state?

I believe you should for I cannot see WA as a red state. I used to live there and it bleeds blue.
 
It appears that I won't be starting any new threads.

Mine, is actually pretty close. I look like I missed NC, which I think I meant to put in Obama's category, but I'll have to check my original map here.

Wow, if Missouri was swapped with Indiana (which I still can't believe Obama won) that would pretty much be my map. Nice.

Wait... has Indiana been called yet? I just woke up and checked Politico and I guess I got mislead because CNN has it too close to call.
 
So there are still 37 electoral votes to be decided...Missouri, Indiana, and North Carolina.

Indiana has not been called yet. Local news has the difference between President-elect Obama and Senator McCain at 20,000...in favor of Obama.

I was kind of hoping Obama would lose Missouri, just so it would put an end to all that "bellweather state" bull**** we have to hear every 4 years.

Mine's accurate in number, just have to switch Indiana with Missouri

I never dreamed that he'd own McCain that badly in the electoral college, or that the popular vote would be as dominant as it was for that matter. I really thought we were looking at a 2000/2004 situation. But the will of the people seems pretty clear.

In looking at my own precinct, I noticed that hundreds of people must have voted Obama at the top and Republicans the rest of the way down because he's the only Democrat to win.
