Make your own Electoral College map

I've updated my Electoral College map from last month. I'm thinking positive and I'm giving Obama North Carolina, Georgia, North and South Dakota, and Montana. The recent polling shows that there's a distinct possibility that he can take those states.

So what's your guesstimate? I say it'll end with 404 votes. How about you?

Bil,

I'm at 409 to 129 and 60 Senate seats + Lieberman.

Hm. I think you're being a little generous, Bil.

I have him at 357.

Actually, I think I'd like to swap out South Dakota for Arkansas. That makes it 407 instead.

Which of mine are you taking away, Alex? And what did you give him extra, JK?

274 for Obama.

If I'm right, what do I win?

"If I'm right, what do I win?"

A decent US President!

While I appreciate your enthusiasm, Bil, I don't want you to jinx us! And by jinx, I mean lulling people into complacentcy who then don't vote.

Having said that, I'm going to go with 338. But I think we should do this game The Price Is Right style. The winner is the closest who doesn't go over! ;-)

Bil,

I gave McCain West Virginia and I gave Obama Arizona. I like that sense of irony, don't you?
