WATCH John King lay out the state of the Electoral College map.
WASHINGTON (CNN) – Today, CNN unveils the first of many CNN Electoral Maps of the 2008 general election. It is based on analysis from the CNN Political Unit and takes into account a number of factors, including polling, state voting trends, ad spending, candidate visits, and guidance from the campaigns and political strategists. The list will be updated regularly as the campaign develops over time.
A little early for this, don't you all think?
I think Barack Obama will landslide John McCain. Because John McCain want to keep the same George Bush failed policy on the economic and foreign policy. But the problem is he says he doesn't know too much about the economy. That's why i think the american people will vote overwelmingly for the democratic party this year.
I don't understand. Can someone help me and explain it to me. First Time Voter here.
What should be ahead for the antiquated Electoral College is total and permanent abolishment! As a resident of Arizona, I am painfully aware that the Republican majority keep shifting the districts so they are always in the majority. This negates my Democratic vote more times than not. This is an absolute stacking of the political deck!
While you are at it abolish McCain!
Well, elswhere in the world, the feeling is that Obama is the obvious choice to move America forward.
Tom Dashle, the Obama campaign co-chair said on National TV they do not need HRC supporters to win the general Elections...
November will tell us the truth.
There is some chance that McCain could win all the States that went for Bush in '04 except Nevada, New Mexico and Iowa. If this would happen McCain and Obama would each finish with 269 electoral votes.
Georgia is going BLUE this year!! Yes, thank you Bob Barr!
This projection seems way out of place. Obama is drawing out minorities in record numbers, he is certain to win North Carolina and most likely Louisiana.
The slap across the DNC's face has started. NOBAMA! Go McCain!
....This RED STATE is... TURNING ... BLUE... come November...
Montana is voting Barack Obama into the presidency....
Counted vote in Montana read like this:
Barack Obama – 102,000
Hillary Clinton - 74,000
John McCain - 72,000
This red state is turning BLUE in Nov... 2008....
Dem's for McCain, period!
Our democratic Gov who is running as an incumbent got more votes than John McCain..
Schweitzer got over 100,000 ...
This RED State is Turning.. BLUE....
I wouldn't put it past Barack Obama to completely turn this electoral map upside down and inside out. Nobody's stopped him yet. His campaign is a juggernaut..
give me a break.
just a month or so with no daily polls and projections.
give me a break!
The media is sure having a ball with this aren't they? I guess they need to do something until the convention. Come November, wait til they get a load of Obama Nation.
GO AWAY OBAMA!!!
I am sickend at the stomach by the racist remarks of McCain voters. He and his supporters disgust me.
First off, since when did polls really matter ?? wait to election day and see how much people do not want more Republican in office... and how many more are going to loose their seats in the senate and lower parts of the government.
Like some Republicans says, we are less worth then dog food and should be taken off the shelfs
Renatti in Ohio, you were never a Democrat... McCain is so not going to win, so deal with it..
Thomas...please put on your big boy pants.
Dems will not win in FL no matter who was running–BUT we don't need it! Do the math with CO, IA, VA, NM, OH and PA on the Dems side, then add in all the Obama safe states–we are there! Nice pick-ups in the west for Obama
Mike makes me wanna puke....
It has started, Barack now leads McCain48% to 42%! Check Gallup Poll.
CNN this is NEWS we need to hear about this!
Don't be stupid people, McCain 2008
Go Obama! And as for Mr. Mike. . . You make me want to puke!
