After the Second Presidential Debate earlier tonight, and looking at the electoral maps (let’s just say www.electoral-vote.com and www.fivethirtyeight.com as two that had Obama at over 340 EVs and moving up today) and current trends, I’m going to shake my Magic Eight Ball, and expect to see a definitive “YES” come up (to be honest, I’ve tested Magic Eight Balls, and they have ten yeses, five noes, and five maybes on an icosahedron).
Basically, I propose this thread as the continuation of the original McCain is forked thread, which, let’s be honest, has largely been a discussion among Obama supporters about the latest polls and trends and news and everything that deals with predictions about the election. Basically, there seems to be a need for an omnibus discussion thread on the chances of each candidate to win (i.e. we’re focused here on what’s going to happen, not so much what we want to happen).
So, I propose this thread as the next chapter in the long, continuing, yet still inevitable Obama March to the Presidency Story. So, without further ado, I offer up the following statement for debate:
John McCain is sitting on the precipice of electoral disaster. Unless something major happens, he can’t keep Obama under 300 EVs. Discuss.
