Most news outlets now have the presidential race at 254/Bush to 252/Kerry with New Mexico and Iowa ‘delayed’ and Ohio ‘Too Close To Call’. Given that Ohio is worth 20 votes, whomever wins Ohio will crack 270 and win, sorry NM and IA.
I predict all three will go for Bush, giving him a 286 to 252 win. As I predicted a year ago, the Republicans are better politicians and would win. Sadly, the issues, the records, the war, nothing will matter … especially to these rural states.
Also of note is the house and senate are going strongly to the Republican candidates. Guess this is what most of the country wants: absolute power for the Republicans.
