    Perhaps McCain can make his last stand at the Alamo? Because eventually that is all he will have left.

    This is a big blow to Republicans I would think.

    The last time Colorado voted Democrat was for Bill Clinton in 1992.

    I am extremely glad to see my home state shift back from far right. The state I grew up in was much more independent and centrist. We had more of a live and let live view than what has been prevalent there for the last 20 years. That view seemed to get lost with an influx of far right evangelicals in the 80s who moved into the state. I am hopeful that common sense will prevail and that the people of Colorado will continue to reject a mindset that has turned out to be hypocritical and bigoted.

    As I said before, I thought you needed to be able to get it up in order to pull out

    RealClearPolitics - Electoral Map

    according to this map Obama has 286 EV and McCain has 155, with 97 up for grabs.

    The states that are up for grabs are as follows:

    NV 5 (B)
    ND 3 (B)
    MO 11 (B)
    IN 11 (B)
    OH 20 (B)
    WV 5 (B)
    NC 15 (B)
    FL 27 (B)

    (B) = Bush in 04

    so that means that Obama could lose EVERY one of those states AND VA with it's 13 EV and STILL win the election with 273 Electoral votes.

    Something extraordinary would have to happen IMO for McCain to win.

    I think it's a forgone conclusion that Obama will win. I'm just wondering what kind of 'test' we'll see in the near future.

    I hope it's not geography related...Clearly Obama thinks there are 57 states :eusa_whistle:

    I don't see that happening x. Especially not if Obama immediately tightens security at our borders and ports, which are sorely lacking.
