I wasn't as into this stuff then but I remember being certain Gore would not win Tennessee.

I won $20 betting Bush to win TN.

I got 46 states out of 50 right.  I got OR, NM, WI and WV wrong.   Got FL right, though.

The only state I missed in '96 was CO - I thought Perot would do better than he did, siphoning off Dole votes.

In '92 I got 44 out of 50.  I missed GA, MT, NH, NJ, NV, OH.

Mine was that only Florida mattered.  Gore was leading in it by 2 points, and campaigning for a couple of days there with no sleep right before the election. FL was the only state where Gore outspent Bush.  

When they called FL for Bush, I noticed that the most Democratic counties hadn't reported a lot of their precincts, and immediately decided that it was still too close to call. About half an hour later the US media realized the same. I have absolutely no respect for the media.

On Election Day my civics class all made prediction maps. Mine was:



The most insane one was by a radical feminist who supported Gore, almost to a point of comparing him to Abe Lincoln:



Yes, that one made me laugh, as did the Civics Teacher and most of the class! Smiley

A Buchanan Supporter had one where Buchanan won Electoral Votes, wich would only happen if the nation was hypnotised by an evil wizard:



Yes it is crazy, I know. George Bush winning Vermont, Washington, and New Jersey. Smiley

I did not predict the electoral vote, but I thought Gore would just barely win.

There were some states that were truly too close to call, so for fun I called the following electoral tie, which I thought was a plausible scenario:



Four states wrong.

Long time lurker, this is my first post. Hello guys Smiley

I never thought 2000 will be so close. All the polls at the time indicated Bush will win comfortably. It was quite a surprise. And not only for me but for many folks I know.

I thought gore will win TN and WV but lose WI, IA, Minnesota, PA, OR and WA.

Misses:

WV, TN, for Gore

IA, NM, MI for Bush

18 EV's off

Less than 2 points.  I make all presidental predictions 4-6 weeks before the election.  I also do a forced prediction where every state must be scored.

Mine was the real result plus WV, TN, FL to Gore and ME, DE, IA to Bush. I'm not sure about NM.

Tweed. You can't be 14! You was only 10 when you did your prediction?
