IN R40L R50L It looks like McCain will reach 50% here.
MT R50S R50L Obama is catching up here, but I don’t think he’ll pull off a win.

Version: 28

I've never been one for ties, but I think MI may go Obama, and that gives us 269-269. That means we have President Obama.

Version: 27

Montana for Obama was a stupid prediction. Back to R50L.

Version: 26

With Ron Paul now on the ballot in MT, I say it'll go D40T instead of R50L.

Edited to fix several (or many) errors that I had (MN going Republican????) - so this is the fully corrected version (I think). Also, I switched MI back to McCain (for now).

Version: 24

Updated to reflect McCain picking Palin instead of Romney (and I had meant to change PA and OH over before):

Version: 12

OK - I want MO back in the Rep. category. I really like the whole Romney/Hucakbee idea - and I think that this would give Romney MO barely - so we'll make it R40T for now - but it may change back - we'll see.

WI D40T R40T

Version: 10

State Previous Current
NC R40T D40T
AR D30L R40L

Adding Huckabee as Romney's running mate - gives AR to the Reps, and I'm changing my mind back to Edwards winning NC.

State Original New
AR R50L D30L
IA R50S R50L
MO R50L D30T
NV R50L R40L
NC D40L R40T

AR and MO, 2 strong Bible belt states don't like Romney's Mormonism, so some defect to a 3rd Party candidate, leaving the Dems. an advantage to get around 38%.

Version: 6

NH from D40T to R40t
NC from D50S to D40L

Version: 5

Alright - I fixed the CA error, making it Strong Dem.
Changed NM to Dem.
Changed MN to Dem.

Version: 4

Romney vs. Edwards - I gave up on Hagel.

Version: 3

Alright - I took WI off the Rep. side and lowered my confidence in some R and D states and increased it for LA.

Version: 2

OK - now this is redone after I corrected my Edwards is from SC to NC thingy. All good now - thank you, padfoot.

Version: 1

This is my HONEST non-partisan opinion - predicting a Hagel vs. Edwards election - what I'm thinking will happen as of now - even if this is NOT - it's gonna be Romney v. Edwards - and in that case, it may be a little different, but generally teh same.

I guess the polls were right after all. You should've gave Obama a bigger victory.

Romney 2012!!!
