Some signs Mccain/Palin aren’t doing so well..

With so little time left in the US Presidential Race, you know things aren’t going well for your campaign when an analyst says this:

Obama, at least, does not look to be competitive in South Dakota or Arkansas.

Ouch. Here’s an even bigger ouch for Mccain:

It will be very difficult for Obama to win more than about 397 electoral votes, which is where he’d end up if he wins all the states where we currently have him favored, plus North Dakota, Montana, Georgia, and Nebraska’s 2nd Congressional District. Obama would have to win West Virginia to break the 400 barrier, and I don’t see that happening; the other long shot is Arizona, which hasn’t been polled in some time. John McCain’s win percentage is now 4.3 percent, down from 5.1 percent yesterday.

When they’re starting to predict that Obama probably won’t get over 400 Electoral votes, that’s probably a sign your campaign is going to get pummelled on Election Day.

    I suggest Miles Lunn acquaint himself with ACORN. Google it!

  • I agree a McCain win is extremely unlikely, still I never underestimate the strength of the Republicans. As much as I despise their party and their views, regretably far too many Americans subscribe to their ideology. I agree if an election were called today, Obama would win hands down and there is about a 90% chance he will win it, but things could still change. My biggest concern is the types who vote Democrat in large numbers (i.e. African-Americans and younger voters) tend to have lower turnouts. This time I think that will be different. However, I should note the Republicans are notorious for finding ways to depress the Democrat vote such as voter caging, having fewer voting booths in predominately Democrat precincts. In the last election, there were massive line-ups in Cleveland due to too few voting booths while almost none in Rural Ohio, so it is not unreasonable to suspect many just didn’t bother waiting and didn’t vote. And in the case of Ohio, Cleveland is a Democrat stronghold while Rural Ohio is predominately Republican.
