Election Prediction

Popular vote: 50% Obama, 48% McCain.

I hope I'm off on this. I hope momentum keeps building for Obama and he ends up with 350+ electors. But I think it will tighten. We'll see if before November 4th they can find bin Laden or goad Pakistan into a war. And we'll see just how badly they can suppress poor and black voters.

Anyway, this is my prediction. I'm happy to accept wagers.....

my 300 dimes says obama gets at least 300 electoral votes...

I certainly hope you're right, and I think he's got a shot at 350.

Given the polls right now, I'll put 240 dimes on McCain getting 240 to your 300 that Obama gets 300...

let's clarify what a "dime " is...in some circles it's $1000.
Looks like he's a shoe in for 300, unless something major happens, I think 348 is my number today, taking all the swing states
NC, Virg, NM, CO, NV, IOWA, MO, OH

OK, I'm going big. I think Obama will pick up NV, CO, MO, NC and GA, so I'm going with 379 for Obama.
