That's a terrific prediction, and I certainly hope it is correct, but I will be surprised if the race does not "tighten up" some over the next 5 days. My prediction, Obama wins all of the current "blue" states, plus Colorado, Virginia, Ohio, and maybe, maybe, Florida!

I live in what is a Rep stronghold in S.Florida and the amount of Change signs I have seen in my community alone equals the Mccain signs .

I suspect Obama will take Florida . I did not vote for him but the change message here was heard and many have come out for him.

I wish the same who have left the GOP and going with Obama would vote out every Rep incumbent we have here as they truly do nothing but sadly those bunch they will keep in power .

#Rep party like Dem party in S.Florida/Miami means nothing its just a tittle used for MOSTLY crooks to get in office.

I dont think so.. It will be much closer than that. I sense a political Bias rearing its ugly head.

Nice try, but Rasmussen is a right-leaning pollster.

I voted for Mccain because I dont feel a single thing Obama has promised he will do not that he isn't able but the leeches called Pelosi and Reid with their inept input will hinder it all thus I wanted balance of powers.

Either way I agree with you the masses that poured out for Obama the day I went to vote who were folks who used to vote Rep was large.

Mccain supporters are simply not voting in numbers .

Yeah what ever you say.. I still think it will be much closer. I also have no faith in polls or polling predictions. Just look at how bad they missed in during the primary's. Let that be a clue.

This would be great, if it turns out to be true. But I would think it won't be such a huge sweep. I think Obama will get around 300 or so...I bet he'll win Virginia, Pennsylvania, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.
I don't know, but Missouri, Ohio, and Florida still worry me--thinking they'll swing towards McCain. Also, I think McCain might squeak by still in NC.

Um, the primaries were actually polled quite accurate.

Do you know what you're talking about or are you just pulling things out of thin air???

Please research before you make silly claims.
