2012 Electoral College Snapshot #1
I know it’s early, and I know many of you have pointed out, accurately, that state polls this early are nearly meaningless. Still, for the political junkies out there it’s all in good fun, especially for the likes of me who really don’t care which corporatist bastard wins the White House. Well, full disclaimer, if you held a gun to my head and demanded that I choose the lesser evil between Obama and Romney, I’d pick Romney.
Anyway, according to the latest mishmash of statewide polls that have a ghost of a chance of being accurate if the election were held today, the electoral map would look like this:
If Obama or Romney was ahead by more than 5 points, I gave that state to him. If this is accurate, then all Obama has to do is to pick up any of the undecided states other than Colorado and he’s got it. Obama’s clearly the favorite if you want to phone in your bet to Vegas.
Just for fun, I’ll post this every week or two. Feel free to go to the site to which I linked yourself. They don’t mind, and you can check on how the Electoral College looked in every Presidential election from George Washington on, and might actually learn something if you’re not careful 🙂
