OH or FL. I suspect OH falls slightly to Obama while MCcain wins Florida slightly. This is with about a 4 point win for Obama.

Last time, I thought Florida. Now I think Obama has Florida barring something major.

This time, I'm going with Indiana although North Carolina could be right there, with Georgia as a "surprise" battleground state. Missouri will break one way or the other near the end (as Missouri often does) and won't be as nail-bitingly close as people think. Expect mischief and accusations around the St. Louis vote, as always, which is usually reported late and has erased many GOP slim statewide margins over the years.

But I don't think MO will be close enough for that to matter.  If I had to guess now, I'd say it will end up about 50-47.5 Obama with Barr/Nader/other getting 2.5 percent.

Very interesting thread.

I've picked MO in all the polls, if consistency counts for anything.

I voted NM last time on this poll....

Now I would have to say NC, followed by MO, and then IN.

I suspect the race will tighten up by 1-2 points, and considering early voting and ground game for Obama that NC will be the closest by percentage.

I think Misery will be the closest when it breaks for John McCain and when it does, it won't matter.

If I had to guess a week out- this is what I am looking for-

National - 51.1-47.1-1.8

Big Three
Ohio - 51-48-1
Florida- 50-48-2
Pennsylvania- 53-45-2

The Upper "South" 
Indiana- 47-52-1
Missouri- 48.8-49.1-2.1
Virginia- 51-47-2
North Carolina- 48-50-2
Georgia-  45-54-1
West Virginia- 42-55-3

The New West
New Mexico- 52-46-2
Colorado- 51-47-2
Montana- 44-53-3
North Dakota- 46-53-1
Nevada- 50-47-3
Arizona-  46-52-2
