Post your map. The one who comes closest to the final map wins. In case of a tie, the first person who posted the map wins. Only one map per person or the first map posted is the entry. I'm not clicking on links. Post your totals or I'm not consider them for charity. Plus you can change the link later and it wont show up as edited.

Winner gets $20 donated to the charity of their choice. Even if its to the RNC.

Mine is below. Being conservative and giving Colorado and New Hampshire to Romney

290 to 248, Obama. And I wouldn't be shocked to see him take 303 with VA too.

I think 281 O, 257 R.

I think Colorado could very well go Obama, but I don't know. I see a range of between the 270s and the 290s. I'd be surprised if it goes about 300.

[edit]Virginia too. I think I meant to hit that blue, but ah well - I'll stick with my original.

I agree with the OP except I think Obama is gonna take Florida only because of the whole voting debacle down there. People are pissed that they feel their right to vote is being suppressed. It's gonna push it over the edge but it'll be tight.

A tradition for black voters. He never gave an answer why he closed early voting on Sunday.

The lawsuits never made it to high courts before the election.

Sunday voting in Florida is an African American tradition? Since when? 2004 when they began allowing early voting in Florida?

FTR, if...and that's a mighty big "IF," the polls are Dem biased based on party affiliation (not likely, IMHO) you could be right--demographic based is best, IMHO. Under then Silver model, that would be the 1:6 odds he is posting now....heh.
