The electoral crystal ball

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2008 at 8:43 AM

To continue the presidential guessing game begun by last night's note on the Rasmussen poll in Arkansas, a UA politics junkie sends along some links to spur discussion.

First, there's Larry Sabato's Crystal Ball. The U. of Va. academic's electoral vote analysis concludes, essentially, that it's too close to call.

Don't like that? Here's a nice electoral map based on data amassed by an American computer expert who teaches in The Netherlands. He updates regularly. Currently, he says it's a runaway for Obama. He predicts big Dem gains in the House and the Senate, too. Let's hope so. Bye-bye Joe, if so.

Then there's, which compiles, among tons of other data, a running average of all national presidential polling. Currently, it's 46.4 Obama, 43.1 McCain.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
