Electoral predictions

OK, I've been resisting this all election season, mostly out of superstitious fear. However, I am now going to follow the advice of Oscar Wilde, "The only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it". Thus, here are my predictions for the outcome of the Presidential race.

Obama popular vote: 52%
Obama electoral vote: 364

McCain popular vote: 45%
McCain electoral vote: 174

If you really want to geek out on this stuff, click on this link to see the projected electoral map I created this morning.

Having voted early, I can now spend my day in search of free coffee from Starbucks and free ice cream from Ben & Jerry's (I think I'll pass on the free Krispy Kreme donut, though).

I will geek out on it! The Petrillo Prediction: Obama=318 & McRage=220 (I dropped Ohio, Missori, and NC as Obama states).

If NC ends up in Obama's column, it looks like you were right on target!

If Missouri breaks for McCain and NC for Obama, then my electoral totals will be spot on, although I'll have flipped Missouri and Indiana. Popular vote total looks like 52% to 46%, pretty darn close there too.
