McCain might pull out Ohio, but even if he does, Obama still wins 273-265.

There's also another poll showing only 44% of American voters saying that Barack Obama is prepared to be President of the USA. The same poll American voters give John McCain 64%. The poll was in USA Today this past week.
These are two very telling polls, IMHO.
Ohio and Pennsylvania are heavily unionized. As are many mid-western states. Unions are heavily involved in the 'get-out-the-vote' operations. Unions like McCain/Palin. I'll find that poll for you if you want but the findings there are similar to the linked poll here.
In Pennsylvania Obama outspent Hillary 3-1 but lost. He way outspent Hillary in other states and still managed to lose.
And the whole time I was watching the Democratic Primaries I'm thinking to myself "Why would anyone in these states ever vote for a carpet bagger, self-centered, say anything to get elected, hated by most members of her own political party, political w***e, Hillary Clinton?"
lol... this couldn't have gone in the polls thread?:P
But seriously, I'll go out and say that Obama wins 273-265. McCain can't take Pennsylvania but holds on to Virginia, Florida, Ohio, etc. Barack wins by pulling Colorado, NM and Iowa away from the GOP.
The polls have shown this to be a likely scenario and I simply don't think McCain has a shot at grabbing any of the upper Midwest. Pennsylvania has just enough cities to keep it from going right and the election will hinge on Colorado... which has been moving left for years as the entire hippie/stoner population slowly migrates to the rockies.
And I base this on how things have looked to me in the last few months, not just the last week that has been favorable to the Dems or the week before that where things look peachy for the GOP. My personal belief is that McCain will make an impact at the debates and unless he royally screws up he will most definitely receive a bounce from them. That, however, will fade down the stretch and the question will quickly become whether or not he received enough of a boost to grab the presidency.
[QUOTE=bitonti;2763184]the AA vote in Philly will carry PA. Michigan is also going Blue.
Indiana goes red, Ohio is a true toss up, likely red. Florida goes red.[/QUOTE]
I mostly agree, but I'm not so sure about Florida right now -- Palin is a disaster there (especially with older Jews) and when Obama starts running the ads about McCain's previous position on social security -- look out.
Also, AJ, there is no Union that is going to campaign for McCain Palin.
[B]BARACK OBAMA LEADS JOHN MCCAIN BY 9 PERCENTAGE POINTS IN THE WAKE OF NATION’S ECONOMIC CRISIS:

45% of Pennsylvania’s registered voters support Barack Obama for president while 42% are behind John McCain. Likely voters in the state give Obama the advantage over McCain -- 49% to 44%.[/QUOTE][/QUOTE]

Your pathetic attempt to get under my skin has and will not work. I'm very proud of where I am from, and nothing will change that, and I'm sure you ancestors felt the same. I also grateful to live in this beautiful country and am in currently in the middle of the naturalization process. So piss off.
[QUOTE=AlbanyJet;2764707]If John McCain can refrain from being an over-aggressive jerk in the debate on Friday night, Obama will lose the debate & election and these polls can be discarded on the floor.
