(CNN) – Republican John McCain wins West Virginia, CNN projects.
The projected victory gives him the state's five electoral votes, bringing his total to 69. His Democratic rival Barack Obama has 174, according to the latest CNN projections.
A candidate needs 270 to win.
I think CNN has totaled up Senator Obama's electoral votes incorrectly. Currently CNN has him at 174 electoral votes, but you project him winning the following states: IL (21) + PA (21) + MD (10) + DC (3) + DE (3) + NJ (15) + CT (7) + MA (12) + NH (4) + VT (3) + ME (4) + MN (10) + WI (10) + MI (17) + RI (4) + NY (31) = 175
what good is the oregon vote when every thing has been called before our polls close
Let me answer my own question:
CNN is conservatively only calling one of Maine's two congressional districts for Obama. Since Maine (like Nebraska) follows the congressional district method of apportioning electoral votes, CNN has only apportioned three electoral votes from Maine (two more for the popular vote) to Obama.
Well done, CNN. (In fairness, it should be noted that CBS has also only apportioned 3 electoral votes from Maine at this point in time)
McCain wins W. V. How shocking......Not!!! That's nice McCain, I wouldn't want you to have no supporters at all, that would be so sad.
Sounds like lor is upset. Awe good luck next time.
