    (1) What will the final electoral count be? (270 to win, 538 total)

    (2) What will the popular vote percentage be for Obama, McCain, Nader, and Barr?

    (3) How many Democrats will be in the new Senate? (Current breakdown: 49 Republicans; 49 Democrats; 2 Independents, both of whom currently caucus with the Democrats)

    (4) How many House seats will the Democrats lose/gain? (Many people expect the Democrats to pick up 20 or more seats.)

    330ish for as McCain says 'That one.'

    51, 48, 0.6, 0.4 Terrible year for 3rd party candidates.

    Joe Liberman's gonna flip before the Sox play a real game. He's gonna lose his one Committee chair in January and then announce his change from BS Independent to straight Republican shortly thereafter. So at that point it'll be 56 +1 to 43 I'm sad to say that my man Al Franken is gonna go down in righteous defeat next Tuesday:(

    House: 253D's 182R's

    I think Obama will win with about 291 electoral votes.

    51%-46%, Barr 2%, Nader 1%

    Dems will pick up 6 seats in the Senate

    Dems will pick up 21 seats in the House

    I still think Obama will not be elected, too much time for republican chicanery.. too many distractions to watch all the players. The results will go to the SCOTUS.. nuf said.

    McCain 46%
    Others 1%

    Obama - 375 EVs
    McCain - 163 EVs

    Democrats pick up 8 seats in the Senate.
    Democrats pick up about 20 seats in the House.

    Not going to give detailed predictions but :

    I'm virtually certain Obama wins.
    I'm confident, but not virtually certain, that the Dems do NOT get to 60 in the Senate.

    So do I. But I think the Dems will pull off an upset in the Georgia senate race.

    Just a WAG:

    BO 346 52%
    JM 192 45%

    Nader 2%
    Barr 1%

    Senate-Dems get 56 seats
    House- Dems gain 16 seats

    I think BO's ground game superiority (w/o Maroney!) will make it a comfortable win, but not quite a landslide,

    Looking at Realclearpolitics:

    RealClearPolitics - Electoral Map

    I'm guessing that he'll (HUSSEIN AMERICA HATER) get 311. I think that most of their toss-up States will go to Mc Cain.

    Wins PA and Ohio, but loses Florida. Takes Virginia. I think he might win Massa-thingy but I'm not sure.. :p

    I just don't trust anything that goes on in Ohio enough to think that even if the polls are accurate, they'll be an actual indicator of the outcome.

    Yeah, Ohio is a tricky one-Diebold and so on. I think Florida will be "won" for Mc Cain on that basis.

    I also now am very worried about election fraud. I deliberately stayed away from the info about i until today because it gives me an indescribable feeling of hopelessness and anger. I couldn't help myself though, and now I'm convinced that this thing is going to be stolen by the GOP.

    I will be shocked if McCain wins. If he does, though, I expect the shocking result to not be due to cheating but due to incorrect polling processes overestimating the young vote.

    Either it'll be over quick or it'll take a while:p

    Seriously, all my moles in the exit poll tabulating room are reporting results that say the battleground states will be called early; but these results are so shocking that everyone is assuming they blew it again. So either the earliest official results will match the exit poll results almost exactly or nobody will be calling anything anytime soon.

    Looks like I was pretty damn close. I only missed Missouri and it looks like the Democrats will only pick up 7 Senate seats. :cool:
