Pollster.com’s Trend Estimates

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Electoral College, McCain, Polls

The poll of the polls… Note that it’s more likely that Obama will win North Dakota than Florida. Pretty crazy. My guess on Tuesday is that if voters are still undecided at this point they’ll break for McCain because they’re essentially okay with Bush’s 8 years and McCain would clearly be an extension of that.

Charlie Cook Talks Electoral Predictions

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Electoral College, Video

Not surprisingly, he doesn’t see good things for McCain. In fact, it’s so grim that he essentially says that if McCain wins, nobody should trust him anymore. Pretty bold, but I have the same feelings. I know people have been hemming and hawing about the fact that “anything” could happen, but nobody has provided any […]

Philadelphia is shaping up to be a key city in a key battleground state in this election, but machine problems and long lines may plague the polling stations and voter disenfranchisement will be a serious risk. Unfortunately for voters, the people charged with running a smooth election in Philly seem surprisingly unconcerned. Philly’s veritable election czar, Marge Tartaglione (D), in particular, shocked ANP with her comments at a recent hearing. See more videos at http://americannewsproject.com

Here’s why… Reports show 1 million Democrats have early voted in North Carolina, compared to half a million Republicans. 1.4 million people […]

McCain’s Road To 270

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Electoral College, McCain, Polls, Video

Chuck Todd and Joe Scarborough break it down… Do note how Mike Murphy says, “I think they’re smoking crack,” when he talks about McCain trying to get Iowa. I still don’t get why McCain is paying any attention to that state. Long story short…it’ll be incredibly tough. Tweet

7 Days Left: Where Does The Race Stand?

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Electoral College, McCain, Video, Voting

First, Chuck Todd talks about the battlegrounds. No surprise…the trends favor Obama. And then…the bigger news: early voting. Looks like Obama’s ground game is really working. One thing I would note about those places where Democrats and Republicans are neck and neck…Republicans ALWAYS dominate early voting across the country. So even if Dems are tied […]
