That map seems a little bit unrealistic.

And off-topic, but... I went back to some of the previous maps and what a shift since the Carter election. The Bible belt was blue and the west coast was red.

Not to date myself, but back then (Reagan in ‘80) the Republicans were coloured blue and the Democrats red on the electoral map….

That map is the most realistic map. What do you have problems with? Florida going red? Me too.

Huffington Post is obviously a progressive paper, but if you click on each individual state, it has graphs with plotted points for dozens of polling firms. This gives a much clearer picture of what's going on.

Please post the latest polls here. Thank you!

Considering all the work Republicans are doing at the state and local levels to disenfranchise blacks, latinos, students, and other demographics who vote Democrat, what is the real margin of support Obama and many senators will need to actually win in the polling booth against a Republican? Especially if they are voting with a machine made by the company that was recently bought out by Mitt's son - Taggert!

As I've already stated, they do, if they're conducted properly and grounded in reality.

Yah like I brushing off an Ohio survey be a useful it had a plus 9 dem sample even though the Early vote shows a plus 12 to 15 number for the Dems? You are lucky you do t want understand polling because if you did you would be peeing your pants right now.

You should explain in detail how the methodology has changed since the polls were untrustworthy three weeks ago. laugh.png

I already asked him to explain the differences in methodologies and what has changed. He tucked tail and pissed off away from that topic.

In any case, here's a poll of polls that takes into account their historical accuracy to determine the probability of outcomes in the election.

As of today, Obama has a 69.5% chance of people elected, which is close to what 270towin.com says (77%, doesn't account for poll accuracy), Intrade (63.5%, based on share trades), and FiveThirtyEight (69.6%).

In other words, you're looking at roughly 2:1 odds that Obama gets elected.

Saw Romney's speech today (fully covered by CNN since it's been said to be a major speech).....it was a darn good one!

I must say it could be the speech to catapult him to the finish line.

I am not sure how useful are national polls because the U.S runs on the College Electoral System. That saying, it may be more useful to look at polls from individual states.
