Actually, Maine and Nebraska award their electoral votes by congressional district. Obama has an office open in Omaha, in hopes of stealing the 1 electoral vote for winning the district, which is mostly urban Omaha. That 1 vote could break a 269-269 tie that is theoretically possible. Neither state has ever split their votes, so expect a huge legal battle if it gets to that.
I am cautiously optimistic about an Obama victory. I will go with something crazy like Obama-338 McCain- 200.
You fucking douche.
I was looking over the electoral map and was going to predict 338-200 yesterday. Now I have to put a swing state in play just to be different.
Didn't know that about Maine and Nebraska.
