    To win the electoral college, McCain needs to run the table on the swing states, something that state polls show is unlikely. Virginia, Colorado, Ohio, and Nevada have been neck-and-neck all year. McCain needs all of them. Obama just needs one. (If Obama just takes Nevada, it's a tie, and Obama would probably win the tie-breaker process).

    Obama -110 banker

    McCain wins Virginia.

    He has to win Ohio and probably will.

    He then only needs Nevada OR Colorado. (taking only NV gives him 270 electoral votes and he wins 270 - 268)

    Remember the State polls also lag behind the national polls.

    Obama is not going to win...

    He was slaughtered like a lamb in the debate. Even Obama backers are squirming.

    Only according to repubtards. The debate winner is the person that swings some votes his way, and according to independents Obama won the debate. McCain didn't lose as badly as everyone expected, performed just ok, but he needed a smashing win to make a comeback from his downslide that started after the convention bump.

    Funny how all of the polls and markets say otherwise. Even in extremely conservative newspapers.

    I am neither or so I think.

    There is this saying we do not know whom it belongs to.

    If you are not a revolutionary when you are 20, you have no heart. If you are not a conservative when you are 40, you have no brain.

    Once you mature and throw away pointless rebelliousness of the youth you will realize that while you are nothing like a redneck, nonetheless, that is good for a redneck and what is good for the rich is the ONLY way to go, even if you are not one of them.

    Just try to keep an open mind.

    What is good for the rich is to enslave, exploit and murder people. Of course its the only way to go

    Great odds there, pavy. WTG.

    Right now Greek has obama -380 and McCain +300. Maybe buy up a little bit of McCain if you want to hedge a little. I still think +300 looks like good value, Obama isn't blowing him out that bad, is he?

    Actually, when Gore ran against Bush, he was 11 points ahead at this time. They are saying that Obama should be further ahead.

    You're a moron if you aren't buying up all the Obama contracts at Intrade and other sites in this case.

    I will let my -110 ride till the end. Remember this is the free $1500 check Bush sent me and I decided to invest it in Obama to stimulate my economy.
