Pre-Election Prediction Thread

Personally I think the pre-election polls have probably underestimated the size of Obama's win. This is going to be a very strong year for Democrats--much like 1980 and 1994 were strong years for Republicans. These things run in cycles and Democrats have the wind at their back this election.

My pre-election predictions are as follows.

President: Obama 378-157 electoral votes, 54%-44% popular vote

Congress: Dem +29 US House, Dem +8 US Senate

I think Obama carries usually Republican voting OH, NC, IN, ND and MT and swing states like PA, MO, NM, CO, NV. I think GA will be extremely close, but I kept it in the R column.

Obama by several points, let's say 5-6 point margin.

North Carolina and Georgia might be late night affairs though.

Palin - McCain by 2 points. McCain carries Ga, Va, Ind with no problem and grabs Penn and Mich.

Keith Olberman will hang himself on air around 12:15 am. I will be asleep. Tape it for me.

I think Obama wins big.

And in two years, when all the hope and false promises from Obama fail to come to fruition, I see a large shift in Congressional power...

There is going to be a lot of "Hahaha Righty doodz." chatter tonight, but the only thing I am looking forward to is DDF. When he finishes masterbating at Grant Park and comes back here gloating... Please, for the love of god DDF don't be modest... Let 'em have it, I want a manifesto!!! Seriously. No, seriously.

decadent, I'm sure you'll type a lot, but stick with what you're good at... Like breaking mirrors.

So I if you put on an Obamabutton and sneak into a liberal election night party, is there a good chance of getting laid as a result of all the euphoria and good feelings?

Sounds like a job for Millwood.

The only manifesto you give two shits about is the one to repeal the height restriction on voting.

I hope I am wrong, but I suspect this is a wildly optimistic take on what will go down tonight.

I suspect IN, GA, NC, MO, and perhaps OH will all be too close to call as the polls close in each state.

Obama will likely get over 320, but there will be plenty of righties talking smack around here before this is over.

Bush closes all polling places by calling in the US Army.
Dick Cheney orders a blockade of Manhattan and San Francisco. Installs Bush as leader for life.
