I'll go one better. I've been saying emphatically that Bush will carry 54% of the vote sine July 1.

I stand by that prediction.

Yes. But only if the evil Republican plot to suppress Dem voter fraud succeeds.

I hope he is right.

That would be fantastic!

A decisive Bush win would mean, the Dems would have to shut up. They would all implode.

Cheney is off by a point. It will be 51 to 47.

Correction:

I'd say Cheney is being a bit conservative with his prediction. More like 58%.

My guess is that 52/47 is a conservative estimate!

Just tell all your democratic friends that there was a mixup on the ballots and the checkbox for Kerry was accidentially labeled Bush. The only way to vote for Kerry will be to mark one down for Bush.

Don't laugh if they are dumb enough to buy Kerry's lines they just might believe something as off the wall as that too.

NOTE: The preceding is for amusement porposes only. Voter Fraud is against the law and should be left up to properly trained Democrats.

It could be a bigger win than even that: 55-45 or a close variation.

Don't even joke about that. Some DU'er will email your post to the MSM, and we will have a raft of "Republican insiders are plotting to suppress the vote" stories....

I am wondering why they would do this? its one thing to say "we will win", but to predict numerical victory, suppose some people just say "it in the bag" and don't vote? for my money, its better to say "it will be razor close, we need every vote".

True, true.

Still, can I just brag for a second: I personally have about 4 Democrats tied up in my basement. I'm feeding them biscuits and cheese, and they are allowed to watch network television as much as they want--very humane.

I will release them on November 3.

You are correct. Cheney is underpredicting so he can have some fun with his prediction after the election.

Sounds great I hope he is right. Me however, do not like to count my chickens before they have hatched. I would rather act like we are behind even though we are probably ahead. Cheney for Prez 08!!

Good! My guess was Bush 51.7% Kerry 47.1%. We must both think alike.

(And I like Haliburton, too!)

Who does he predict this to? (Yes, I know the english is wrong, I'm just too excited to correct it). Prayerfully, it's Katie. I think I will tune in tomorrow, just to see who is the recipient of this prediction!!

You don't get a "plum" job like that just for the asking.

53-46 or better, depending on how close it is in states such as New York, California and New Jersey. Also, how the numbers rack up in red states.

On the high side: Bush 55-56. Low end 53. Kerry highest would be 46, possibly as low as 41.

With all this handwringing and worrying, it seems everyone is ignoring how poorly Kerry is doing in Democrat strongholds. Seriously lags behind Gore--even Clinton.

It's just a lack of commitment, man.

Think about it: if each CA Freeper just locked 4 Democrats in his or her basement until November 3, the state could easily move into "Toss Up" territory.

He's sandbagging. I put my money on 54%.

But I like your attitude!

The thing to remember is a large number of those 47 percenters for Kerry are located in NY, CA and MA - those are really nice states in which to waste Kerry votes since they are already in Kerry's pocket.

The 52% that Bush gets are from the states he needs to pick up the electoral plurality. Can't get much better than that!That's why even though the 52-47 spread may not seem large - the electoral count will be up in the 300's for Bush.

I agree. Cheney shouldn't have bit on the bait. No good can come of making such a public prediction. Some swing voters can see it as a sign of arrogance, however wrong that may be.

Actually we have a couple of demokrats who we are suppressing from voting too. We keep getting calls from the local dems asking for otto, saying they want to register him. We won't let them register him or our other dog either. :)

NO!! - It will be OUTSIDE the margin of error!!

If it's inside the margin of error, Kerry will declare victory and try to steal it.

52-47 has been my call too. I'm also calling 300-302 electoral votes.
