The home state bounce might be enough to push Obama over the top, but I think Bush carried every county in the Chicago metro other than Cook, though I'm not sure how the Cook County suburbs voted.

Kerry won the Cook County suburbs:

Kerry 594,928 (58.9%)
Bush 407,867 (40.4%)
Other 6,942 (0.7%)

Bush's margin in the collar counties was only a little over 100,000, about half than what he needed, and less than he'll likely need in 2008.

Sorry if I missed it, but I scanned quickly. Also, in WI which will be a swing state, Obama wins big in Milwaukee & Madison

Obama is NOT winning the Milwaukee suburbs. No chance.

Kerry didn't even win Milwaukee County outside of Milwaukee city.

The Philly 'burbs are questionable.

LOL. This guy's track record is just awesome.


As much as I appreciate the Pavement binge, stop being a creeper.

BRTD, it was an unreasonable prediction.  It was an unreasonable prediction in May.  It was an unreasonable prediction in 2006.

It's stupid that he won't own up to it.

It's stupid that he won't reform his predictions accordingly.

But you should criticize his current predictions on their merit (or lack thereof) instead of mining the archives like this.

Why?  Because it makes it seem like you can't articulate a current criticism of his ideas and have to attack the messenger.  Which is, by the way, a logical fallacy.

And it's creepy.

Quit it, or stop using my work product to justify it Wink.
