My prediction is that, Obama takes the "Kerry States" + Ohio, Florida, New Mexico, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina* and Virginia*.

McCain, obviously will take what's left of the "Bush States".

Electoral Collage: 353 -185 in favor of Obama

Popular Vote: not sure about the percentage, but Obama is taking Over 50%, probably around 52-4% or so.


*If I’m going to be wrong, I bet it’s about these two.

with all the voter fraud potential, you cant really say...i think the election is a lot closer than it is made out to be...remember, both kerry and gore had leads, gore even had an 11 point lead.

i think mccain takes ohio and florida...but i just dont know if he can take away pennsylvania...although i think it will be very close, like 2 to 4 points the most.

i think obama wins, but i wouldnt be surprised if mccain pulled it off either...polls are usually wrong, or at least greatly exaggerated.

...i do think obama will win the popular vote though.

i'm going to take another look at some polls tomorrow, but i'm pretty confident with my prediction; Florida is another one that i feel may slip to McCain, but i'll see how things seem in the morning. My US foreign policy proff is giving my class a state by state prediction tomorrow afternoon, so i'll get to see if he agrees with me.

Some of them are more accurate then you'd think. Gallup has only been wrong twice in American electoral history (1948 with Truman and 1976 with Carter), and they just called (well, predicted) it for Obama.... http://www.theglobeandmail.com/servlet/story/RTGAM.20081102.wcampaignibbitson1103/BNStory/usElection2008/home

Well, we'll find out who the next president will be in about 36-48 hours.

Unless the decision of the US people is challanged in the courts, and there is a good chance that it will be.

7 to 1 odds on Obama.

My proff had the same predictions as me, but he also gave Missouri (ie the mobilized and enthusiastic Black population will play a larger role then the somewhat apathetic evangelical bloc) to Obama; however, i don't feel as if it's going to swing his way.

I'm throwing up nervous about tomorrow. Going to a huge party at one of the venues I work at to watch the returns come in, though. Here's hoping I will be celebration drunk and not consolation drunk.

Obama's gonna win hands down. This isn't a bias, that's my actual prediction.

I think Obama will win, but it will be closer than most people think. I don't think I believe in this "Bradley Effect" that people talk about (not anymore, I do believe it was a factor at the time), but I do believe in the "Kerry Effect." Meaning that last-minute undecideds will vote for the guy with more experience, like when everyone thought Howard Dean would win Iowa but Kerry took it.

I think it will be 318 to 220. Obama.

Sounds fun. Every time O'Bama wins, I have a drink, am I right?

I think Obama will have more votes, and he will be president, but only for 4 years. Both candidates are bad, Obama is just less wrong. Anaway, its stupid to give so much power to hands of a one single (old) man :D

I totally and wholeheartedly and unreservedly agree with mrs_hollandova. The American president has a LOT, an awful lot of power in his own hands. His job combines those of a French president and prime minister. That's rather excessive, not to say extreme, from a French perspective.

Give me something that isn't 'excessive' or 'extreme' from a French perspective. And if you say bungie jumping...

i dont care about who wil win !cause obama or mccain:their politics will be same about middleeast and kafkas countries so they re same but maybe they can be different in usa or american people anyway i guess obama is a chosen applicant by someones cause america's image is so bad now in middleeast countries-in kafkas countries and in muslim people so usa is trying to clean this bad image with obama.and their writers wrote many news about obama, like" he is muslim ,he is socialist ,he is energetic and more blablabla"i guess it was a conscicous company !these terms re not agreeable for obama . so i dont believe these properties.its not fit for him.so its just a make-up for to deceive to these angry countries,maybe they re thinking like that "hey man we can clean this image with obama,yeah we can try it "but i have to say it;his company was so successful and i think his brainteam did it!

I wish my brainteam could do it too :(

Anyway, I'm happy that Obama came out on top. I feel that this election couldn't turn out wrong, because I believe that, while Obama is the righ man for the job, McCain would have also been a great president.

Good for you, America!

Hmm, well, assuming that North Carolina goes to Obama and Missouri to McCain, i was 50/51(including DC).

Nicely done. I do believe we made a great choice due to the world's reaction.

The Congo went for McCain..... seriously?

I couldn't agree more. I really liked Clinton, but I haven't been this excited (in a positive way) about US politics in a long time.
