Election 2008 Electoral Map Prediction

With only 40 days until the election, I've decided to go ahead and put out my prediction on the electoral map outcome of the 2008 United States presidential election.

If you want to make your own, go here and use the CNN electoral map calculator.

With McCain's horrible decision to add Sarah Palin to his ticket, the extremely unpopular Bush administration, the crippling economy, and the unfavorable war in Iraq, I've predicted that Barack Obama will win the presidency.

Here is how I expect to see the map go in 40 days. When we do have the real results I will compare and see how correct or incorrect I am.

334 Electorial College Votes Go To Barack Obama
204 Electorial College Votes Go To John McCain

Even though, yes, I am Barack Obama supporter, I am not predicting his win because of that. In the 2004 election I was a Kerry supporter, but I was not surprised to see Bush win because the war in Iraq, the fear inducing campaign against gay marriage, and the lack of Kerry fighting back against the smear Bush campaign.

Despite all this. I'd much rather have an Obama presidency than a Kerry one. Everybody get ready to start saying, President Obama.
