I just found this poll from the website of my local NBC affiliate, WCSH6 in Portland ME:
NEWS CENTER Web Poll
Who are you supporting for president?
John McCain: 2483 Votes
Barack Obama: 2482 Votes
Other: 438 Votes
5403 Total Votes
ONE VOTE DIFFERENCE.
Now granted, some states are far more leaning to one side or the other and Maine, who elected the first Independant Governor in the nation (Jim Longley, 1976) does maintain still a strong Independant base. Hell, I was an IND myself from 1984 until earlier this year.
But my point is that every vote DOES INDEED count…
