Obama 341-197

Sorry for bumping. But I like These 'Final Prediction' topics. And I wanted to see if our newer members had anything to add.

I goofed up with Montana, Missouri and Indiana (quite possibly North Carolina too, I can't remember though)

I certainly didn't predict Indiana for Obama.

At that time I was a Republican hack (and not on the forum), so my map went a little something like this:



McCain--343
Obama--195

In all honesty, I don't know how I could believe something as ridiculous as that map.  I think I was thinking that the Bradley Effect and disenfranchised Clinton voters would both help McCain.

Had this been the results MSNBC's Election night coverage would have been very interesting viewing. Wink

This was mine; I thought Obama would be in the low 300's.




Obama- 319
McCain- 219

I based it on 538.com's forecasts. It was a pretty good bet, apparently.

Our numbers are dwindling. Our words are confused.
Some of them have been twisted by the enemy
until they can no longer be recognized.

Now what is wrong, or false, in what we have said?
Just some parts, or everything?
On whom can we still rely? Are we survivors, cast
away by the current? Will we be left behind,
no longer understanding anyone and being understood by no one?
Must we rely on luck?

This is what you ask. Expect
no answer but your own.

Here's what I had:



Maybe a little optimistic in a couple spots, but I only got 3 states off (plus NE-2) so I think it works. I did use this as my prediction in the office pool and came in second. I would of won if Obama had gotten Missouri.

I'll come up with one later.
