I'm having a tough time calling this....or caring either way. I'm factoring race out of this, because as many morons will vote for Obama simply because he is black, I'm guessing that at least that many people will vote against him for the same reason.

On the one hand, I'm seeing lots of Obama bumper stickers, but that just shows that the Democrats are excited about their candidate where the Republicans are not.

On the other hand, Republican seats in Congress were lost in 2006, and I think they'll lose more in 2008. I think that 8 years of George Bush has pushed a lot of unaffiliated voters off the fence.

I do not want John McCain to be the next president. The only thing that would make voting for him worthwhile would be all the tears and tantrums from the Dems, but I learned in 2004 that the fun of that wears off in a week or two - then you have to live with the other guy.

I have to be honest - Obama is looking pretty good right now although I think that this drilling spat will hurt him. Part of me very much wants him to win. I think losing the White House and some more Congress seats might send a message to the GOP that we have had enough of this borrow-and-spend liberalism. There are thousands and thousands of unaffiliated voters in this country, and like it or not, the GOP needs us; their "party faithfuls" may not be able to cinch them the deal this time.

I call a tight race, no idea who the winner will be. :confused:

I voted for McCain. I don't like him and I don't believe he has the right policies for the things the average American is interested in: school choice, illegal immigration, small business, late term baby butchering, etc., but he's better than the opposition.

McCain is security conscious in some ways and he can add some good minds to the SC. That's it, really.

I think a number of people who claim to be Obama voters will vote their pocketbooks in the booth. It's so PC to support Obama that I believe some people are vocally just going along to get along. The exit polls may worthless. So much white guilt - so little left over for Global Poverty Taxes. ;)

No matter what happens there will be some funny lines uttered. If McCain wins every democrat in the country is going to pretty much throw in the towel. There will be some anger but it will end in complete apathy, its just not worth it. There will be a little support for McCain because most Democrats liked him before 2007, but if things don't get better expect him to villainized on the level of GWB.

If Obama wins there will be borderline violent reactions from the right, the same way after 8 years of Clinton Democrats couldn't really bear a Republican in the White House (this was aided by the Florida controversy). There will be a lot of Republicans treating Barack Obama the way Democrats treat Bush. The role reversal will be really fun to watch.

Not because he is the best man for the job, but because Americans are blind sheep desperate for a charismatic leader to take care of their irresponsible lives. Obama promises to cater to every whim of the masses while punishing the eeeeeeeeeevil rich. Dumb Americans seem to lap that message right up.

People are beginning to notice just what a liar this creep is !His biggest draw will be the PC crowd and just about all of the blacks.The usual dumb college kids and assorted Later day aging hippies.He will not get the majority of the white female vote or the white middle American male vote,

He will not get the Jewish or Latino vote.He will lose the Southern Vote and Midwestern vote.New York,Massachusetts and La La Land will no doubt go for his B.S. but he will be hurting for electoral votes.

The West Coast queers and Maoists will all go for him .All in all he will not do as well as Kerry and will lose bigtime but It will be because of so called racism by the usual suspects !

Getting back to the subject matter at hand; McCain is going to slaughter the Magic Negro. After PA & NJ declares McCain the victor on election night, the Dummiecrats can get their crying towels out. This election will not even be close; we will not have to worry about the lefties proclaiming that the election was stolen.

I think I have to agree with you. I hope I am over estimating the numbers of Americans who look upon every type of contest as if it's "American Idol", but I'm seeing that level of mentality everywhere. Maybe it's not as bad outside of my environs, in the rest of the country, I hope it is not, but I fear that it is. Lately I've been seeing something along the lines of a "Being There" effect. For those who haven't seen the movie or read the book, you should. It describes a similar situation that mirrors the Obama/Messiah complex pretty closely.

That's very grown up of you..... but not surprising. Like your bretheren on DU, politics is tied in with your identity now. Of course you're more concerned that the person you associate with is winning, than whether or not they are good for the country. That's why Obama can change whatever position he feels like. As long as he doesn't change that "D" next to his name, it's all the same to you libs.

Looking at the electoral map, it will be alot more difficult--if not downright impossible--for McCain to reach the magic number of 270, than it will be for Obama.

So I say the edge is defintley Obama's in November. If Obama picks Evan Bayh as his running mate and manages to take Indiana due to Bayh's immense popularity, then Obama will walk away with this election. Also, Bayh will help Obama in Ohio, where he is already leading. There is no way McCain makes up for the loss.

It's looking more apparent everyday that Obama will win Colorado. If he does that, he won't even need OH, MO, or Florida.

So where will McCain get 270 electoral votes? He has the same problem Kerry had in 2004: an uphill fight for the magic number.
