Much better than I expected. I thought Obama would trail by 10-15%.

I wish Rasmussen would poll Indiana now.

The GOP is going to have to defend another state that should be a cakewalk for them? Cool.

Yeah, McCain only spent 400$ in Montana in 2008, Obama spent 1.5 million $.

Yeah, this seems more plausible than that R internal (lol) that someone posted a while back.

It's nice to see Montana polled. I find the state to be fascinating for some reason.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

Isn't Montana comparable in area to Germany, but has about 1% of the population? That itself makes it fairly fascinating.

I think it's hilarious how the border between Montana and Idaho is shaped like a profile of Ronald Reagan.

Alaska is far bigger and has fewer people.

I don't really get the border between Montana and Idaho. For part of the way it's the Continental Divide, but after that it isn't (otherwise it would connect with the border between British Columbia and Alberta). What is the border in the northern part?

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Yes but we all know why, it's an empty frozen land. Montana is located in a habitable region.

Doesn't shock me. I feel like Montana will be very close no matter what in November.

I'm calling it like this:

50.1% Republican
46.9% Obama

Marginally habitable at best. There's little question as to why Montana is so sparsely populated also. I was there in late June and it was still chilly. The highway through Glacier National Park was still closed for snow clearance, which was a major disappointment. The Eastern half of the state is just an extension of North Dakota, a dynamic that I'm sure you're very familiar with. The Western half is also extremely remote, but rugged also, which made for a fun vacation, but not a practical place to live. FWIW, Wyoming has an ever lower population density.

I was in the area twice. In late August 2010, the first time, and while it wasn't closed, I experienced temperatures around freezing on the main highway through Glacier (with light snow flurries). Fascinating place really. But probably not the most convenient place to live.
