Election Projection 2008
I just added a great little graphic to the page here. You'll see it in the top right corner. It's from a site called Election Projection and it tracks the presidential polls by each state. This is tremendously useful to election handicappers. Most new outlets give useless national polls that don't mean squat do to the fact that the Electoral College decides the President, not the popular vote (as Al Gore could painfully tell you). Right now it looks like Obama is walloping McCain, but I find it difficult to believe that Virginia and Florida would both go for Obama. McCain is going to have to pour his efforts into holding Ohio and Missouri, because he loses either of those two he's toast. With the country the way it is and Obama's massive money advantage, not to mention McCain is incredibly old, I don't see anyway Barack Obama is not taking the oath of office on January 20th, 2009.
