And it's not even close
Dan Lovejoy has issued his Electoral College projection, and it flies in the face of all this "dead heat" stuff we're hearing from Big Media:
Bush 341, Kerry 197.
In this scenario, the Pacific Coast (except Alaska) and New England (except New Hampshire) go blue, and Kerry picks up Iowa and Illinois; Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey; Maryland and Delaware; and the District of Columbia leaving a mere thirty-five red states.
Why is this happening?
Kerry will lose in November, not because America adores President Bush, but because the Democrats nominated a terrible candidate.
Of course, getting 63 percent of the electoral vote doesn't mean that Mr Bush will get anywhere near 63 percent of the popular vote, but I figure 50.0001 should be more than sufficient.Posted at 11:13 AM to Political Science Fiction
