It's about that time. Let's get our predictions in. Here are the rules.

1. You post your map ONE TIME. What you post is what you're stuck with, so think it out.

2. You can explain your methods/guesses, but no commenting on other peoples' maps. (Unless some idiot makes an all blue/all red map, then go ahead.)

3. This isn't a flame thread. Plenty of other places for that.

Just go to 270towin.com and make your map. Make your map and screencap it. Then post it here.

Here's my entry.



I'm iffy on Ohio, but in this scenario it wouldn't be necessary anyway.

I think both Florida, Ohio, and VA are going to be very very close. Probably recounts in Florida and Ohio before it is officially declared either way. I think there is a very strong possibility that we don't have a declared winner until a few days after election day.

I also think there is a very good chance Romey wins the popular vote by a very slim margin.

This will probably end up being a very close election.

I have a feeling the only differences in the maps everyone posts are going to be Ohio and Wisconsin. Very good analysis though.

Why not just post a real fuckin map?

Jesus, I avoid political discussion here (especially with don) but a friendly discussion of the possible outcomes should be safe for at least 2 pages.

I lean left, but I knew a few weeks out that Kerry wasn't going to win, and I think everyone knew this far out that McCain was dead on the map.

This year it really is close in several states and the map is far less certain than in previous elections, so try posting an actual prediction.

I personally am looking forward to 4 years of reading posts about how the electoral college is bullshit since I think Obama wins the map and will narrowly lose the general.

Seriously Mayr. You're being really juvenile here.

Is that one of those pictures that turns into something if you stare at it for a while?

It almost looks like O+A...this one's better:



Except I can't fit the + in anywhere without it looking all messed up.

And Romney wins...bonus!

I'll be serious and post my map...



With this map, if Romney loses Ohio, we get that dreaded 269-269 tie. I do think Romney gets Ohio, Iowa, and Nevada though.

Winning the presidency with less than 25% of states voting for you. That means, assuming the Electoral College votes are proportional to population (which they aren't), but you could theoretically have Romney winning by over 75% of the popular vote and losing the Presidency.

You know someone is going to try that one of these days. We'll see a map like that in our lifetime. And I made the exact same map a couple hours ago.

It's also interesting to see who controls the votes. For instance, if Obama could swing North Carolina and Georgia, that takes Florida out of the race. And if he managed to get Texas (unlikely but not impossible with Hispanics), that could render Pennsylvania and Ohio irrelevant.

We're quite a few years away from a map like that, but it can happen. Texas won't be red forever.

Hmm. Sorry if this sounds oblivious, but is that one of the reasons some people act so viciously and irrationally - disproportionate to what would make sense - pissy about immigration sometimes? Because those brownskins are likely to vote a certain way? It's probably obvious, but then again people who base their entire philosophies around partisan voting have always baffled the shit out of me.

All of this is still better than popular vote. You'd have the same idiots that elect 16 ounce Bloomberg and porn condom Villaraigosa picking our president.
