Final Opinion Poll
John Edwards/John Kerry vs Garrison Porter/Penelope CruzPresident of the United States of America/Vice President of the United States of America
Considering his 6 point lead in the polls and looking at the map it appears Garrison Porter will secure that 6th election victory against John Edwards in each man's bid for best of 10 election victories against one another. Both candidates have shown strength and talent at winning in the electoral college. Edwards has won 3 times and Porter 5. The last time narrowly.
Given the 6 point lead this also probably means Garrison Porter will win the popular vote. That being something that does not always happen. Yes a candidate can loose the popular vote and win the election still because that candidate carries at least 270 electoral college votes. It is possible for a candidate to win 270 to 268. It is also possible that a tie in the electoral college occurs that being 269 to 269. Then the house of representatives chooses the President and the senate the Vice President. In real life that is not a computer game those votes in congress occur after the new congress is sworn in.
The question about the popular vote is how big of a margin will Garrison Porter win the popular vote. A six point lead suggests something like 53-47. That without a doubt is a solid showing. It can be as little as 51-49 and 345 electoral college votes and as big as what 55-45 and 469 electoral college votes. Pretty big difference.
Its an accomplished victory if the polls are to be believed. Look to New Jersey & Maryland & Pennsylvania & Ohio.
Candidate Porter will win the popular vote when he can hold down the Democrat margin & even carry in some cases New York & California.
Exit polls indicate the undecided votes are going in favor of John Edwards & the popular vote margin of difference is at least 10 million votes.7:00 PM EST
