An update of the original post reflecting the improvement in over all numbers

Now instead of McCain-Palin needing 493,636 PUMA votes to tie and 35,935 more to win, they only need 395,617 to tie and 32,065 more to win. I have changed the last two columns to reflect the changes in the RCP averages and the number of PUMA voters no longer required. I know a trend when I see one.


Even more important is how few PUMA voters in these eleven states are required for a McCain-Palin landslide. If you add up the PUMA’s needed column in the second table, you will see that only an extra 510,479 more PUMA’s are needed to sweep the table. That is a mere 938,161

What I will bet my 45 year reputation on is that McCain-Palin will win by at least 42 electoral votes.

We have them! Remember?

Hillary voters. Internal polling suggests that at best, we are taking 70-75% of these voters. Other estimates are as low as 60% in some areas – particularly Ohio and western PA

And I’ll end with a CNN quote -not at all biased – snark !- but maybe prophetic


One of history’s most monumental elections could be torn to shreds by a pack of pumas.


.Updated with Mondays numbers

I will up my prediction from a 42 to a 52 electoral votes margin pending further data.
