There are 94 electoral votes that are still defined as a toss-up.

I was wondering about this the other day.

Can you please identify how many are defined for Obama and how many for McCain.

One interesting note...A news poll in SD asked 1000 likely voters who they were voting for and 60% said Obama, 34% said McCain...San Diego has historically been a Republican city...I'll be interested to see what happens on election night.

I think the Polling this year is over saturated, thus compromising the integrity of the process. We all know most of the mass media is in the tank for Obama, so there is no doubt that they are taking statistics and manipulating them in a concentrated effort to make undecideds who might be leaning towards McCain to just stay home since it's a "done deal".

Why should McBush get any respect in the media for the type campaign that he ran? It was cynical, misleading and said nothing about why we should vote for him. His electability is hinged on phrases like maverick, America first and reform. Yet his staff is filled with lobbyists. He bags on Obama for foregoing public financing and yet Obama does not take PAC money while he does.

Granted there were a lot of things going against him, but McBush ran a totally negative campaign.

The media is doing everything they can to make this look as much like a tight race as possible. Look at MSNBC, which is by far the most Obama-leaning network, touting Mason-Dixon's "close" numbers.
