In fact, he's making a huge swing through there next week.  Fact is Gore barely won the state in 2000 and several polls have shown Bush ahead.  so why would he pull funding?  A simple 5 point win for Bush would easily carry Oregon and Minnesota, and New Jersey will come into his column by less than1 percent.

My prediction-the three states that'll really determine it are WI, OH and WI. If Bush wins OH, he wins; if Bush wins NM and WI, he wins; if Bush win OH and NM he wins, if Bush wins OH and WI he wins (4 possibilities).

If Kerry wins Ohio and Wisconsin he wins; if Kerry wins Ohio and New Mexico he wins (2 options).

Therefore, a 66% chance of Bush winning (and I predict NM will go Kerry, WI will go Bush and OH will bve very close-but for Bush)

Of your four scenarios for Bush, two are redundant. If Bush wins OH, he wins, so in that case it doesn't matter what happens in WI and NM. I would also add IA to the mix, since it can pair with WI just as NM can for a win.

I would amend your analysis to read:

Four states will determine the election in a close race: OH, WI, IA, and NM.

Bush wins in three cases:
1) Win OH
2) Win WI and IA
3) Win WI and NM

Kerry wins in two cases:
1) Win OH and WI
2) Win OH, IA and NM

It's so close I can't tell you who will win. If you look at my map, I have Kerry wining the election. Bush will win FL, and Kerry will win PA. Ohio is slightly Kerry now. If Kerry wins Ohio and Iowa, but loses New Mexico, he could have only 269 EV, that also puts Bush with 269 EV. SO CLOSE!

I suppose Bush can win NJ, but he won't lose NH and PA simultaneously.

   Bush is ahead by 3 in NC, which makes NC a tie.

   Given that challengers historically do better than the polls indicate while the incumbent stays where the polls indicate, Bush will be at 48 to 49 percent of the vote on election day.

   Kerry is leading in the battleground states 50 -46.

   Predictions for election day:

   Surprises:  Kerry wins North Carolina and Colorado.

   Post election day disputes:  Missouri, Colorado, Florida, Nevada, WV, and NJ

    Kerry wins OH by 3 and PA by 7.

    Bush wins FL by 2

    When the votes are counted Kerry gets 313 electoral votes, Bush 225 electoral votes.

     None of the challenges from either party to election results will be successful, or be heard by the Supreme Court.

NC is out of play. Bush by 6% at least.

   Survey USA poll this past week.    NC  Bush 50  Kerry 47.

   North Carolina is similar to VA in this election, except without as much of a military vote.  It's a world apart from South Carolina.

Doubt it will end that close. Kerry has never lead in any poll in N.Carolina.

Bush 286
Kerry 252

Minnesota and NH are basically ties.

If Kerry gains Wisconsin and NM, and puts it at 271-267, a Colorado legal struggle likely decides the election.

I think you'll see answers galore around here without people directly answering you.
Are you in any way related to josh_22?

Kerry 272- Bush 262

It will be a squeezer. Ohio and Florida will be decisive!
The Colorado thingy might play into this as well...
