Encouraging. It’ll be interesting to see how Pennsylvania, Ohio, Florida and Virginia go early. If Obama wins all four, its over. If McCain wins all four ... it might be over.

Time will tell.

I’ll take it. I just got my receptionist to go vote at lunch. She wasn’t going to go before. Another McCain/Palin vote to run up the total in TX. Have to counteract CA and NY.

What? If McCain wins PA, VA, OH and FL....there is no more election. McCain wins. That goes for either side.

I have a boring precinct. There were no campaign signs or people outside the polling place. I did notice the campaign activity zone was moved out from 50 feet considerably. Considerably. That takes the fun away for Bambi zombies and zombettes.

I’m in an office of 4 architects(a very liberal profession) in New Bedford, MA and each one of us is hardline McCain/Palin. Though nothing we do here in Mass will amount to a hill of beans, in terms of carrying this state, at least we’ve cancelled out 4 D’s in the popular vote count.

People, you have to realize that states move in groups. It's topographic. The reliable analysts know this. For example, if a GOP candidate takes PA, he is going to take OH, because OH polls 5 points higher for a Pub candidate than PA. And if Mac takes OH, he is going to take VA, because VA polls a few points higher than OH.

Bottom line: if PA falls for Mac, then a slew of other states will fall for Mac. So, keep your eyes on PA people, if it goes for McCain he WILL be the next POTUS. BTW, ain't it interesting that Mac spent so much time in typically Democratic strong holds in PA?

Interesting...but although architecture is you say a liberal profession, is your group considered liberal? And if so, how do you explain their support for McCain/Palin?

I am curious about such things. TIA.

Wrong, Mac can't win without OH, but he can lose PA and win the election. Remember 2000 and 2004.

Exactly. Plus I think that would signal that the Upper Midwest is in play. If the bitter clinger/PUMA vote is enough to win PA for McCain over the urban+black+youth vote, then I think we'd see the same effect in WI, MN, & IA. Plus what about MI?

This story does not say that battleground states are moving hard and fast for McCain (implying exit polling data) it says that as of last night, ‘polls’ in these states were moving in the McCain camps direction.

Stop performing a disservice by hyping folks (which could possibly have a negative affect).

In the immortal words of James Carville..."There are more of them then there are of us."

Carville was talking about conservatives and conservative-leaning independents, of course.

The only reason it was so close in 2000 and 2004 was because millions of conservatives sat the race out. The only reason we lost in 1992 and 1996 was because millions of conservatives not only sat out but many of them wasted their votes on Ross Perot (including me in 1992).

When McCain got the nomination, it looked like millions of conservatives were going to sit out again. But then we got the double whammy of a genuine socialist getting the Democrat nomination and Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate.

Now there is no reason for anybody to be sitting out this election as too much is at stake.

So despite the massive GOTV efforts (and vote fraud) of the other side, if we all turn out to vote today, we win. End of story. If we don't win, it will simply come down to the fact that many of us sat this one out as well.

An African-American friend of mine here in Ohio, who he and I always "argue" politics" was going to vote for Obama.

He called me minutes ago to tell me he couldn't do it. I had changed his mind and he couldn't bring himself to vote for Obama.

I voted a bit after 7 AM in rural MI. It was the heaviest turnout I’ve ever seen. I have no idea if that is good for McCain or Obamanation.

We were at the McCain HQ yesterday putting in our work hours. We heard the same thing all day.

I spoke to one guy who has a wife in PA working with Catholics for McCain. She said they have great support for McCain. Also said there was a deep rooted anger in many people for what Obama has said about their religion and his threat to take away their guns.
