Obama Landslide?

Thanks to record breaking early voting turnout and historic turnouts of African-American voters, this election is turning quite interesting. Obama is competitive in states that haven't voted Democratic in decades and this election is being played save Pennsylvania on GOP turf.

The question is will Barack Obama have a blowout win on Tuesday, or will it be a narrow upset win (gag) for John McCain?

The map is interactive, so you can click on it and change states from one candidate to the other with the corresponding change in electoral votes.

I don't care how much he wins by. I just want him to win.

Just win isn't enough. It has to be big enough to where the Repugs can't spin it like they did Clinton's 1992 one.

It needs to be a repudiation of conservatism.

Here is thing Monica, I support Obama because he is truly the lesser of evil however he is not nearly as left of center as everyone believes him to be. At his heart he is a centrist and no card carrying lefty would call Obama left leaning even.
The lesser of two evils is not always the best solution but in this case I don't know what other options there are. The kind of real fundamental change that is needed won't come from Obama. It won't come from some steeped within a system that is predicated on exploitation.

You are right Monica. A non-spinable, undeniable mandate will help Obama be the transformational president he wants to be and that we must have. Not just change, but transformational. That's his goal. We've had only a few. The last was Reagan who successfully changed attitudes that started the mess we see today. Barack wants FDR transformation. We need it and if we are to restore America, we gotta have it.

I don't see Barack Obama as the lesser of two evils.

I see McCain as misguided for wanting to continue the Bush policies and Barack Obama as the best man for the job to clean up the GOP mess Junior made.
