Discuss with maps.

Clicked Nelson/Snowe but meant Snowe/Nelson. Clearly the forum disagrees.

Nelson/Snowe


I would expect the Nelson/Miller ticket to do much better in the South. That's my only concerns about the map Ben.

Probably the strangest 2008 map I've done but this is a hard race to pin down.



Snowe: 274
Nelson: 264

I really think CA, NY, TX, NM, MI and IL could go either way.

I don't think Nelson would be that popular in the South, even with Zell Miller on the ticket.

I think he would do better than Snowe in the south though. She's too socially liberal.

Again very hard race to pinpoint.

Nelson/Nelson

Nelson performs well in an class election pitting White Collar and Blue Collar workers against each other. Enough White Collar Liberals who are against the Iraq War vote for Nelson, to swing California to him, letting him win the election slimly.

 I'd agree with this map.  Nelson doesn't have as much appeal in the south as he does the midwest area. The only difference is I'd give him West Virginia, and maybe North Carolina and Tennessee, thanks to the Miller/

Something to that extent. Nelson isn't as appealing to conservative voters as Snowe is to liberal ones.

Nelson 298-240, though I'm not sure about it. Nelson would lose the social liberals/pro-choicers, but based on my admittedly limited information, he could probably hold the labor democrats and win with a rust-belt/dixiecrat coalition.

Nelson/Nelson. However, he is a bit too liberal of a Democrat for my tastes.
