Hey, it's about as much in play as New Jersey, which is also "lean"

Nobody has the balls to call it the way it is. Everybody's playing it safe. The only pure tossups in this election are Ohio, Virginia and Colorado. The rest are all leans/safe.

I would have to agree with you on that point. It seems as if following 2000 the big networks are being very cagey (in case they get accused of allowing one candidate to build up a head of steam). My personal feelings (which I won't commit to a projection until September 15th onwards) are:



Obama 264
McCain 229
Ind 3
Tossup 42

LOL

The AIP isn't even running a Presidential candidate.

Look at the recent ND polls and you'll see their point.

That map is my map, actually. (Not saying they stole it. It's my prediction. Not like my copyright. You know).

Well, if you go absolutely strictly on the polling data, both Montana and North Dakota are tossups.

That's the exact same map I had in mind actually, except with Florida in the GOP column.

He's basing it off polling, not his wishes. Honestly, this blind hatred of Fox is pathetic. That map is very reasonable, more so than what CNN or MSNBC puts out.

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

Yeah. One's the mouthpiece of an extreme fringe in American politics and the other's an internet blog.

I am intrigued as to why IN is being classed as a tossup. The last time it went Dem was in the 1964 Johnson landslide. They're not surely suggesting that IN is going to vote Dem are they?

let’s go to our surface. Here’s where we were in 2004, Obama being—representing the Kerry states here in blue, John McCain representing the Bush states in 2004 in red. Two eighty-six, 252; John Kerry came up 18 electoral votes short, or one Ohio. And here’s where we were last week, just to show you where the battleground was.



McCain 174
Obama 212
Tossups 152

And I want you to keep an eye as I change things to these states up here in the northern tier of the country, the industrial Midwest.



McCain 174
Obama 264
Tossups 100

And everything has moved, at least with the Kerry states, have moved out of toss-up and into the Obama column. Throw in the fact that he is up in Iowa and up in New Mexico, and right now, if the election were held today, we would say that Obama is up five or more points right now in enough states, 264 electoral votes. John McCain under 200, under 175. And as you see here, all, all of these states are Bush ‘04 states—Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, Ohio and Indiana, Colorado and Nevada.

Wow. That's probably the best map in this entire thread. And it's from France. US media fails.

It seems like Lief's posts sometimes have a sexual tint to them. I've definitely seen references to spanking more than once.
