I checked it this morning and Bush is up 327 to 211. This is awsome, I just hope it's accurate. I'm having a hard time letting myself believe it, because I don't want to get my hopes up if he loses.

Unless something really crazy happens between now and November, Bush will win this election. It won't be a tight one either.

More and more people are seeing everyday that Kerry and his group are incompetent, back-stabbing, flip-flopping, lying, senseless bafoons who are NO GOOD for our country and especially no good for the war on terror and our domestic security.

Personally, I believe it's pretty accurate, but it ain't over until the horizontally challenged female belts out a showtune.

Don't let this lull you into a false sense of security--Bush is winning, but not by the landslide we're hoping for. Continue talking to (converting) as many people as you can about the treasonous acts sKerry has committed and why he is the wrong choice for a strong America! Above all else, GET OUT AND VOTE and encourage others to do the same!

yesterday NH was slightly for bush with a total of 331 and today it looks to have swung back the other way twords kerry.

The site is obviously leaning towards Bush, so you have to keep that in mind when looking at the data. Also some of the data is more than a week old, so it's not exactly realtime data on the whole country. It's not perfect but it will give you the general idea.

Alright, South Carolina, what's with the pink stuff?

Well, if accurate, it keeps getting better. Bush is up more now than he was a week ago on this same map. Man, I hope this trend continues.

Since he uses the latest results from several major pollsters, I don't think any other state-by-state poll compilation will have more up-to-date data.

The webmaster of that site is an admitted Kerry supporter. He takes polls from all souces and plugs them into a database that generates the map. No one is polling states that are a "lock" for either candidate so some data is going to be old.

Anyone notice how most of the states in blue are also the ones that are most at risk for a terrorist strike?

I tend to think it’s accurate.

Note though that the electoral numbers are very deceptive, Bush isn’t nearly as far ahead as those numbers might imply.

It has occurred to me in my more cynical moments that the admittedly pro-Kerry webmaster might be trying to lull Republicans into a sense of security while energizing Democrats.
