Good news.

I'm also glad to see that the sKerry camp officially gave up on Missouri AND the NBC story that our boys were at that Iraqi ammo storage facility AFTER the goods were looted.

Any thoughts on AK?

Edited to add - thanks for the good updates Hiram.

The Columbus Dispatch endorses President Bush
10/24/2004, 1:00 a.m. ET
The Associated Press

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The Columbus Dispatch endorsed President Bush over Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry on Sunday, saying it was "less than enthused" about choosing between the two candidates because neither one had a stellar record.

The newspaper said it strongly opposed Bush's decision to invade Iraq and that it has repeatedly criticized the incumbent's fiscal policy. But the paper said it believes Bush would be more successful than Kerry at pacifying Iraq.

"A victory for Bush will signal to the world and terrorists that the United States is committed to victory in Iraq and Afghanistan," the newspaper said in an editorial. "A Kerry victory will send an ambiguous signal that may raise doubts about American staying power."

The Dispatch also said that Bush would be more likely to reform Social Security and Medicare, which the paper said are the type of risky political moves that a first-term Kerry would avoid.

"Bush has every reason to take on precisely this sort of challenge, especially if he hopes to ensure that history remembers him for something other than the Iraq mess," the newspaper said.

It isn't "gung ho" Bush, but thought you would like too see a little formal support from Ohio for a change.

what about this one? It's from presidentelect.org and shows the following numbers:

Kerry = 272
Bush = 266





President Elect 2004 Electoral College Analysis (10/24/2004)

President Elect's latest analysis of the 2004 Electoral College vote pitting President George W. Bush against the Democratic nominee, John Kerry, shows that if the election were today Bush would continue the trend of popular vote losing presidents failing to win a second term.

President Elect predicts that John Kerry would win 272 electoral votes and President Bush would win 266 (Bush led 274-264 on 10/17/2004).

CHANGES FROM LAST ANALYSIS:

- IOWA (from LEANING KERRY to LEANING BUSH)
- MAINE (from SOLID KERRY to LEANING KERRY)
- NEVADA (from LEANING BUSH to SOLID BUSH)
- NEW JERSEY (from LEANING KERRY to SOLID KERRY)
- NEW MEXICO (from LEANING KERRY to LEANING BUSH)
- OHIO (from LEANING BUSH to LEANING KERRY)


QUICK NOTES:

- For the first time since the start of the 2004 analysis Kerry has taken the lead.
- Nevada and New Jersey seem to be falling into each candidates' camp solidly.
- Last week I said "Wisconsin seems to be falling into Kerry's hands and will probably stay there for good". I may have to eat those words when the next analysis comes out!
- With things still this volitale 9 days before the election, the presidency is up for grabs.
- This map will be updated on: October 27 and November 1

This is the Rasmussen poll. Even if GWB doesn't win California this year, it is still a good trend.

Well, not quite. Even with California for Bush, that map still has 7 states, and DC, for Kerry.

Sgtar needs to lower the dose on his meds.

You need to stop obsessing about these polls. Polls like this are not accurate enough to guess the outcome of the election unless it is a landslide and it is not going to be a landslide.

Smart move, we don't want him here. If it weren't for St. Louis it wouldn't have been a "battlefield" to begin with. Aside from a few lesbian twits in my neighbrhood, the vast majority are Bush supporters.

Sure. Denver is the problem.
The rest of the state is conservative for the most part, but Denver (and Boulder)...

Still, I'd be surprised if Kerry wins Colorado. Even the left-leaning Denver Post has endorsed Bush (albeit for their own CYA policy more than anything else).
Link Posted: 10/26/2004 4:55:02 AM EST
Bush will take Colorado, I don't believe it is as close as the polls would have you think.

Kerry's camp has pulled funding for commercials out of Colorado, and Bush just stopped by Greeley yesterday.

Michigan should not be a blue state. At the very worst it might be a blue outline.

The Detroit News is showing Bush with a 4% lead in Michigan, and the Detroit Free Press is showing Kerry with a 1% lead in Michigan. It is by no means "firmly in Kerry's grasp".

He actually had to come back here yesterday (3 blocks from my house) to try and shore up support. The President is coming to the Silverdome (seats 80,000) on Wednesday. Michigan is still a Battleground state, and Kerry may very well lose here!

President Bush will take AR and CO (the newbie at EV just ignores all the other poll numbers from those states). that will give him 300 exactly. I also think one of the following 3 will go to the President: MN, MI, or PA. That would push Bush into the landslide area
I cannot believe we are leading in Hawaii!

The Electoral-Vote.com guy is crazy if he thinks Kerry is taking either Colorado or Arkansas. I don't think the Kerry campaign abandoned Colorado because it was so confident of a win that they didn't feel the need to fight anymore.

It looks to be shaping up for a serious ass-spanking of the Dems. They could very well lose six seats in the House, another three in the Senate AND lose the White House as well. Of course with the margins so close in all of those races, all it will take to completely reverse that is people being apathetic about the election.

Are there any exit poll results from early voting? Curious as to wether early voters are most likely Dems or Reps.

I have faith in this for some reason:

www.weeklyreader.com/election_vote.asp

"...Since 1956, Weekly Reader students in grades 1-12 have correctly picked the president, making the Weekly Reader poll one of the most accurate predictors of presidential outcomes in history.

President Bush was a strong winner in the student poll; the only state Senator Kerry won was Maryland. Senator Kerry was also in a statistical dead heat with President Bush in New York, Massachusetts, Washington, D.C. and Vermont. President Bush won most grades, although Senator Kerry did win among tenth-graders. ..."

The early voting is misleading.

It's as though all of the hardcore types come out, and come out early.
So what?
It's not as though they can vote again (oh, they'll try).
It's a drop in the ocean compared to Election Day.

Funny nowadays, with internet technology, there would be no reason why those folks can't vote with the rest of us. Since we can get real-time AARs from Iraq/Afghanistan on this forum, they sure can set it up there the soldiers can vote. There is no reason for the paper absentee ballots that we see today.

Every unit has an officer assigned to assist the men and women obtain absentee ballots and ensure that they are received in time. THIS administration has not sought to disenfranchise our fighting men and women like Clinton/Gore did... what scares me is cocksuckers like Ed Randall who came right out and said they would try to disqualify any military ballot received after 11-2... excuse-fucking-me... the law says postmarked, not received you Clinton Cunt-lapping Whore!


Actually, what I was after was this: does anyone know or want to venture a guess if the military vote would tip the scales in the swing states (or any other state for that matter)?

I am offended to see Mississippi in pink. there is no way in hell would that state go Dem.

Might as well throw my 2 cents in on this one.

I have a feeling that this election will be more of a victory for Bush than most people think. I live in the VERY Liberal NE part of PA. The election of 2000 saw this area around 70% Dem. Never saw many Bush/Cheney signs during that election. Now fast forward to this year, and man are there Bush/Cheney signs around town. I would say there are 3 Bush/Cheney signs for every Kerry/Edwards sign around here. Back in Sept, Bush came to town for a rally and over 10,000 people showed up. Granted that some of those people came from over an hour away, but that is still astounding for this area. Kerry came to Scranton and I think around 3,000 people showed up, then Edwards came to Wilkes Barre and had 3,000 people show up. More than likely the same people showed up at both events. So in this area with those kind of numbers, I Bush has a good chance of winning PA altogether.

I think Bush will win with 58%+ in the popular vote, and around 300 in electoral votes, give or take 5 either way.

If Bush gets 58% of the popular vote, then it is not likely given the current electorate that Kerry will get more than 100 EVs. Not that I don't wish it would happen...

I was scanning through DU a bit ago and they had a thread or response in a thread that said the Rep had 100,000 more new registered voters than the dems did. Thats good news. You here all of this talk about new voter registration and the dems are spinning it as proof that people want Bush gone. I guess it doesn't occur to them that just as many and in the case of PA more want Bush to stay.
