The Last Night Before the Election - Rove's Prediction

The final Rove & Co. electoral map of the 2008 election cycle points to a 338-200 Barack Obama electoral vote victory over John McCain tomorrow, the largest electoral margin since 1996. All remaining toss- up states have been allocated to the candidate leading in them, with Florida (27 EV) going to Obama, and Indiana (11 EV), Missouri (11 EV), North Carolina (15 EV), and North Dakota (3 EV) going to McCain. The two candidates are in a dead heat in Missouri and North Carolina, but they go to McCain because the most recent polls conducted over this past weekend show him narrowly ahead. Florida, too, could end up in McCain's column since he's benefited from recent movement in the state.


  1. I for one will be glued to my seat tommorrow night, i want to see History being made!


  2. um good job Ken!
    I wish that the economy was not in the flophouse..
    (or wait , after Wall Street's debacle, should that be the nuthouse?)
    I love your guys running down the lane!
    p.s. bet you and Beth will stay up for most?
    yes ?no? wink

  3. I can't believe tomorrow is election day, and a historical one to boot. I'm excited but very nervous because it really is thisclose. I think I'll be exhausted come Wednesday!

  4. I'm hearing vastly different reports...landslide for Obama, narrow win for Obama, narrow win for McCain...

    LOL on that last one! :)

    Interesting to see Rove's prediction.


  5. It has been an interesting ride hasn't it? I haven't, in my lifetime, been in the midst of so much excitement and interest, for any type of election...EVER! Who ever wins...its been a tough fight!

  6. My goodness, I have to calm down! I'm going to burn myself out before tomorrow ends!

  7. I'll take that map and smile. But I would dearly, dearly like to turn my home of NC blue.

    Ironically, Liddy Dole may have helped to do that in the past four days with her down-in-the-gutter attacks on Kay Hagan.

    And now wouldn't that be some irony? Trying to play the Jesus card in the Senate race and unintentionally helping to elect our first black President in the blow back.

    Sweeter than sweet tea.

  8. Looking forward to seeing the outcome of your Elections ~ I never pay any attention to "Polls" they never seem to come out as predicted :o) ~ Ally x

  9. I am just waiting for tomorrow morning, to be sure.

  10. I hope All goes Well!


  11. Exciting times! Can't wait to see how this plays out and what, if anything, gets better in the upcoming years.
