Final Entry: I've pretty much decided on this outcome. I may tweak it throughout the day until the polls close in the first states. I eliminated all the toss-ups and switched them to Lean for their respective predicted winners. I tweaked the last of the former toss-ups to >40% for their final predictions. I changed Maryland's prediction to >50%, I changed Arizona's prediction to >40%, I also changed Pennsylvania's confidence to Lean Obama.

Arizona will definitely be over 50% McCain. Despite the polls, this is his home state -he won there by 70% + in 2002. It will be close, but a clear win for McCain.

Missouri, Florida, North Carolina and Indiana are all nail-biters -but you seem very confident about them.

They haven't graded it yet. But, when they do... I probably have an A. I NAILED THAT SH*T pretty much. If I had switched out Indiana and Missouri, I could have gotten EVERY state right on the winning candidate. BUT, those 2 states have the SAME electoral value. :)prediction Map

So, wow, I just found out that Nebraska's 2nd District may ACTUALLY split its electoral votes, for the first time, giving President-Elect Obama its 1 electoral vote due to the overwhelming turnout for Obama in Omaha. And assuming Missouri is given to Senator McCain, the final total will be 365-173. My final prediction wasn't too off from that.prediction Map

Nebraska EV going to Obama really is something. I had a feeling he might eek it out here due to the ground game. The lines on election morning here were stunning.prediction Map
