    Is that based on a Romney win in Ohio?

    If so then I would agree with your forecast based on the last set of figures I have seen but would be anxious to review figures from the last few days.

    Obama 277
    Romney 261

    Map I made on RCP today:



    BTW early voting has been called off in NC because of Hurricane Sandy. And the SoS there is Dem so it's not opportunism.

    I'd like if people could use the Print Screen button to make their own maps and post them here. You need to paste after you press print screen e.g. MS Paint.

    I'm factoring in Hurricane Sandy as a suppressant of Obama votes among minorities in the swing states, especially NC, NH, FL, VA and PA and maybe eastern Ohio.

    Like Dame Edna, that was even with giving Romney all the likely breaks, except New Hampshire. Print Screen won't work, but map essentially like above.
    My political compass:
    Economic Left/Right: -5.38
    Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -5.64

    I've a tenner on at 9-1 that Obama will win the electoral college whilst Romney gets the popular vote. I intend on taking wifey out for a nice dinner if I win so I'm going for a very close Obama win. 271 will do nicely thank you. Although I imagine lots of hanging chadiness to occur before then.

    You press Print Screen. Then open MS Paint and select "Paste" and save the pic. Then upload the pic to an image hosting website and place link here.

    By the way 270towin.com seem to be using the 2008 E.C. state figures so I recommend using the one on RCP instead.
