My predictions aren’t worth the pixels they’re displayed on but what the hell, here’s my early prediction for the final results of the 2008 election: Obama wins with 379-159 electoral vote margin. How did I come up with that? Well, I ain’t no Chuck Todd so I simply took the numbers from the 1996 election where Bill Clinton trounced the hapless Bob Dole.
I’ve said all along that John Sidney McCain’s candidacy reminds me all the world of Bob Dole’s fruitless effort. Of course some of the states that went D in ’96 will go R this year and vice-versa, but overall the numbers will be in the same ballpark.
