Shannon Makes The Call: The Presidential Race

Click here for my map of the final electoral vote count.

If you don't want to do that, here is the summary of my prognostications:

GENERAL ELECTION, 11/4/08, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

Total Electoral Vote Counts (270 Needed To Elect)

Obama/Biden = 338 McCain/Palin = 200

Tie-Breaker

Margin of victory in Ohio = 3%.

UPDATE: Eric Andersson has pointed out that my Electoral College map is identical to that of one of the supreme political operatives, image makers and glorious dirtbags of our time. Who, you ask? Click here to find out.

I am not sure how to take this news.

So you and Karl both think that Missouri misses for the first time, eh?

I've heard reports that the polls and skewed in one direction thanks to very little polling going on in rural areas. I don't know if that's just wishful thinking around here, or if it's true. If it's true, there might be an election night shocker.

I find it odd that Indiana could be the determining factor, given it's long line of ruddiness.
