I’ve been lax in blogging since my cross country move to Maine. Settling in here and unpacking has taken up most of my time, but I did not want to let election day pass without chiming in.
Karl Rove has predicted an Electoral blow out for Barack Obama today:
According to the final 2008 polling map posted on the Rove & Co. website, Obama will take a wide swath of tossup and red states, including Indiana, Ohio, Florida, Colorado and Nevada. The former Bush political adviser predicts McCain will hold on to North Carolina, Florida, Missouri and his home state of Arizona. Obama, according to the Rove map, will win easily by 10 points in Pennsylvania, where McCain has poured significant resources and campaign time.
In Dixville Notch, NH, the first ballots cast in the U.S. tallied in with a landslide for Obama at Midnight.
Stay tuned here on The Dem Daily for coverage of election day. I’m heading down to my local polling place in Eastport, Maine where I can thankfully still register to vote today and will be casting my ballot for Barack Obama. For some reason, although I sent in for my absentee ballot in California over 3 weeks ago, it never showed up in the mail. Needless to say, I was relieved to find out it was not too late to register to vote here on Election Day.
