Election Predictions!

Here are my predictions for tomorrow's elections. Please leave a comment with your own.
  • President: Barack Obama
  • Electoral College: Obama 353, McCain 185
  • Senate Seats: Democrats 58, Republicans 42
  • California Proposition 8 will pass
  • Swing States: Obama will win Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina, Florida, and Missouri. McCain will win Indiana.
Those are some of the most important/interesting ones. Feel free to make predictions on the ones I've named as well as any others.

Please note that these are my predictions, not necessarily what I hope will happen. Also, don't bother checking my math on the swing states and the electoral college totals, I didn't.

Holy Charak, Batman! You really think Obama is going to get that many ec-votes?!? That’s crazy talk. I'm anxious to watch tomorrow night. I think Obama is going to win, but I don't think he'll win FL and maybe not OH either. I’m pretty sure he’s going to lose AZ and UT; I’m going out on a limb on there.

Gosh, I don't want either party to get 60 seats in the Senate, but it could happen this time. I'm going to say 59. Coattails. Also, I think Ted Stevens is a huge nail in the coffin.

I'm not going to comment on Prop 8, but I finally decided tonight who is getting my Prez vote. I’m relieved.

I think the Skins are going to win too.

President: Obama - 382 McCain - 156
Swing States: I'm going all in. I say Obama gets: NV, NM, VA, NC, OH, CO, IN, FL, MO, MT, ND, PA, MN, IA, WI, MI, and NE (2d District). While they tip McCain, I think AZ, GA, and SD are all closer than expected too.

Senate: Dems(w/Leib.) - 58 Reps - 42
House: Dems - 264 Reps - 171
Prop 8 will fail.

By the way Christina, even Karl Rove is predicting a blow out (338-200):

Christina said...

Well, Marc, I thought the Skins would win last night so I think I'm in for a huge surprise.

It looks like we only disagree on Indiana Marc. That's about the only thing I'll be interested in hearing results about tonight (now that I've taken a stand on it).

If I could amend my electoral college guess I would now say Obama 364 and McCain 174.

I now also think Prop 8 in California probably won't pass.

That picture made my day.

Obama is going to win. Of the swing states he'll take all but Indiana and maybe Missouri.

Democrats will take 59 seats.

Tomorrow we will find out that Prop 8 barely failed.

And I will cry myself to sleep.

Proposition 8 will fail in California and George Bush and John McCain will get married. Just like your picture shows.

Marc said...

Looks like it's going to shake out 364 to 174 (Missouri is CRAZY close, but it looks like McCain edged out Obama by 500 to 1000 votes).

One thing I didn't see coming... the Prop 8 protests... are you serious?!? How dare a church take a stand.
