OK, here it is! The poll of the two candidates, now that the primaries are over. Feel free to post comments on the election, or how it would go in a real life general with an EC.

I have posted a prediction map (Gustaf3, I think it was) predicting a narrow GOP victory in the EC. I will not try to predict the actual election here on the board yet, but I think it's gonna be close... Smiley

Hmmm, both presidential candidates come from traditional battle ground states, and both vice presidential candidates come from states that almost always go to the other party.
I'd suppose that MI is solid Dem and PA is solid GOP.
Generally solid MS and IL would be tossups.

I made MS and IL tossups in my prediction. But I left PA at lean GOP, b/c I expect a strong showing by the Dems in the steel states. Michigan, on the other hand, would be very solidly Dem, with both the state senators being well recognized Democrats.

Wait, did our chairman approve of this, because we haven't even held our convention yet?

I don't remeber any final agreement on format either.  I'm not whining, I just want to make sure that we know what is going on here, because this doesn't fit into what YoungRepub talked about at all.

Yes, where is it posted? And by the way...how are you guys making these prediction maps? Are you using the confidence and predicition maps under the 2004 section? If you are, I would think that your maps are going to become quite crowded....

P.S. I like your slogan Supersoulty. "A New Team for a New Era" lol  I think I'll be sticking that in my signature now.

Well, with my vote (for Supersoulty), this poll is extremely close.

50-50.

As a Southerner, I will be campaigning like crazy for Supersoulty-Demrepdan in Georgia and other southern states - Mississippi included.

This is the map posted by Supersoulty:

I think Nym90 would sweep the midwest minus indiana, which is where I disagree with supersoulty.

It is on the predictions page.  Thanks, I thought it was a good slogan too.

I disagree.  I think that the combined influence of myself and Demrepdan, while failing to carry Ill. would cause a surge for us in Ohio and most other midwest states.  I think that Nym90's  margin of victory in Chicago would be just enough for him to carry Ill.  Not to discount Demrepdan's role in this at all, because I think his presence onthe ticket gives us a large chunk of the mid-west.
