Two New Final Calls and a Retraction

I am calling Delaware in favor of the Democrat at a 68-32 Margin because the first poll of this open race was released.
That makes it : Dem's 27 GOP 21

Senate: I am now calling Maine in Favor of Republican susan Collins because of a poll which has her 16 points ahead. the Margin is Collins 58- Allen 42.

I am retracting my previous call for Mitch McConell because of new polling info which shows the race within 2-3 points
they cancel eachother out.

New Presidential Ratings and Poll Check

Here are My new Ratings
Obama 202
McCain 157

Obama 273
McCain 198

And Here it is without tossups:
Obama 306
McCain 232

I Told you I would do these weekly but some big polls have come out today here are my poll checks and Ratings:
Strong Obama (202)
IA: Obama +10
NM: Obama +7

Lean Obama (273)
MN: Obama +2

WI: Obama +3

OR: Obama+10

PA: Obama +3

NH: Obama +6

CO: Obama +6

Tilt Obama (306)

OH: Obama +1

VA: Obama +1

Tilt McCain (232)
IN: McCain +1

NV: McCain +1
NC: McCain+1
MT: McCain +2

Lean McCain (198)
FL: McCain +3

MO: McCain +5
ND: McCain +6

Strong McCain

All other Bush '04 states

Key things To watch for:
1) McCain is capping off in the rust belt states: expect Obama in the next week to 10 days to expand his leads in WI, PA, MN,MI and OH
2) Obama is closing in on making CO a strong state.
3) McCain could be reclaiming the lead in VA soon, Don't hold me to that, VA will be a tossup no matter what.
4) Ignore polls finished before Tuesday.
5) FL and IN will probably flirt between leaning McCain and Being a tossup till election day.

Senate Poll check And Ratings

In the Senate though I still have 11 Races out only 6 appear to be somewhat competitive.
Here is My Poll Check on those six

CO: Udall (D) +6
AK: Belsige (D) +5
NC: Hagan (D) +1
MN: Coleman (R) +1
OR: Smith (R) +1
MS: Wicker (R) +3

Here are my Ratings of those 11 that are still out and pick ups :

Sade Dem (52):

Strong Dem (54):


Lean Dem (56):

Tossup/ Tilt Dem (57)

Tossup/ Tilt GOP(43):

Lean GOP (40):

Strong GOP (37):


Races to watch:
Minnesota: The Convention has Coleman about a one point lead. Will it hold?
North Carolina: this race is extremely fluid, Kay Hagan holds about a one point lead. Liz Dole looked like she had lucked out a few months ago but that turned out not to be the case. The Democrats have united behind Hagan and this race will be close down to the wire.

Presidential Final Calls: Collectively

The Final Calls on the Presidency were getting tedious so I am doing the Rest of what I have right now here:

Obama Will Win DC,DE,MD,CT,RI, MA,VT,NY and ME as I have already called in addition to CA and IL Giving him an Safe Total of 153 Electoral Votes.

McCain Will win UT,WY,ID and Georgia as I have already called inn addition to KS, OK, NE, AL,TN,KY,AR,AK, WV and TX Giving him a total of 121 Safe Electoral Votes.

Democrats Officially Predicted to Win more Governors

With Missouri and Indiana Now in the Books The democrats Have Clenched The Senate and the Governors Races. There are Three Out Standing Races

3. Delaware: Still waiting on Polls , Should be called when They Come. Strong Democrat

2. Washington: it's about tied right now once the RNC bounce wears off Georgie Should Have the Advantege. Lean Democrat

1. North Carolina: Right Now it's About a 3 point disadvantage for Purdue. If you figure in the Obama changed electorate and the Waring off of the RNC bounce It should be close to a 1 point advantage for her, Little Room for Error. Tossup/ Tilt Democrat

Democrats Officially Predicted Win Senate, Senate No-Brainers Over

After The Senate No-brainer Final Calls ( and Two Others in New Jersey and Kentucky), The Democrats Have Clinched By My Prediction, and We now have 12 Races out.

12. New Mexico: a popular Politicians Son is running for the open seat and has consistently been up by 20-30 Why Haven't I called it? Some Recent Rassmussen's Have the Race within 10, As soon as someone Polls it back to a 10+ point lead I will Immediately Call it. Strong Democrat

11. Texas: Some People saw this race as a slim Democratic Opportunity, But after the GOP Convention Texas is looking More Red. This one Like New Mexico Will Probably be called at the next poll. Strong Republican

10. New Hampshire: This Is looking very Bad for John Sununu. He is down By 10 Points and has been since this race started, He needs to get competitive soon or it's over. Strong Democrat

9. Maine: Collins is Extremely popular and up by 21. Experts think it is going to give but I think not. She Seems as likely as ever to be re-elected Strong Republican

8. Louisiana: Landriue is up by 17 and I don't see that falling. This one will Probably be called at the next poll. Strong Democrat

7.Georgia: Chambliss is up by 8 points but this could begin to swing in Martins Favor, It dosent seen Likely at this point though. My Guess is that it will dance between being safe and Being Competitive. Strong Republican

6. Colorado: since this Seat Has Opened it has been competitive Right now it's Udall By about six (maybe Stronger), Don't expect a call on this any time soon, but Right Now Udall (D) is the Favorate. Lean Democrat

5. Alaska: with Ted Stevens Indictment every thing seemed to be looking great for Belsige (Democrat) but since McCain Picked Palin His Lead Has Shrunk (20-25 to 2-5). Stvens Jump Will Blow Over but it Might take some time.Lean Democrat

4. Misssissippi Class I: Since the resignation of trent Lott This Race has been one of the Most Competitve Right Now his sucsesssor Wicker has about a 5 Point lead but it's in heavy flux Tossup/ Tilt GOP

3. Minnesota: Franken Leads by 1 But that was a Pre-RNC Poll, Right Now Coleman has the Advantege but expect this to be a Race to the Finish. Tossup/ Tilt GOP

2.Oregan: Right Now Merlky Leads Modderate GOP incumbant Gordon smith By about 1. Gordon smith is Liked By Democrats and Tying himself To Obama, But Chafee Lost in '06 Tossup/ Tilt Dem

1. North Carolina: Do me a favor and Ignore the Survey USA and Research 2000 Polls. A side from those there have been two polls since the RNC 1 Democrat and 1 Republican: The GOP Puts Dole Up By 2 The Democrats Put Hagan Up by 1. In short this Race is Tied. If Obama helps Blacks Come out it will really help Hagan in this dead heat. Tossup/ Tilt Dem

The 2008 Governors Races

The First of my no brainer final calls are done. I've finished the easy Governors races and we are left with 5 Races so I will rate and rank them based on how competitive they are them:

5. Delaware: should be an easy democratic victory but it's an open seat and there hasn't been any polling yet, I don't want to take any unnecessary chances. Strong Democrat

4. Missouri : though it is currently held by republican he has retired (and would go down in a landslide any way) and the Challenger is 8 Points ahead. the GOP's Chances are slim but existent So I am holding off on calling this one. Strong Democrat

3.Indiana: this one looked earlier like it would be competitive but the GOP has pulled ahead by about 12. this could just be an early trend and start to trend back tward the left but for now it's looking good for the GOP. Lean Republican

2. Washington: the Democratic Governor (Christine Georgie) won by under 1,000 votes in 2004 and has been fighting to keep her position ever since. it seems that she is winning that fight. she is now leading by about 4 but the race is trending in the other direction. she looks good but right now I'd put the odds of her victory at about 70-30 (Favoring Georgie ). Lean Democrat

1. North Carolina: the popular governor Mike Easly is termed out and this race is wide open. Right now Purdue (the Democratic Nominee) is leading by 1.5 points. it's a bit close for comfort. Obama could help her win but she needs to fight to stay on top. Tossup/ Tilt Democrat

so here are the numbers.

The Biggest Jump was Gore in 2000 (+19%) The Smallest was Kerry in 2004 (+4%). If I were to put in Today's Gallup poll as the Post RNC Numbers It would be: Obama 47% (-1%) McCain 45% (+6%) and give McCain a 7% Net, but conduction of the poll began on 9/3, McCain Didn't give his speech till 9/4 Which Means I am Giving him till Monday. In the past two elections the person that holds thai ground better (lost less after the other convention) have won . In all 5 conventions (Not counting this years RNC) anylized the Convention holder had the lead after their Bounce, If John McCain does not victory could Proove Dificult. Every one has lost the Magnitude of their lead after the bounce (Gore Lead by 3 and won by 1 Which means -2 from bounce), which means an Obama 9+% victory is unlikely. The Post Convention Bounce in all but one case since 2000 (Gore lead by 6 at one point) has been the biggest lead the candidates have from that point on which means if McCain doesn't take the lead it is unlikely that he will get it.
I am Giving McCain till monday. If he does not have the lead then Obama will be the overwelming favorite.

I will not do any Ratings or other anylizations untill the conventiontion dust settles, But this Opens the door for me to start makeing Final Calls which are Subgect to change untill election night eve.

The Pros and Cons of Sarah Palin

-No experience
-Ties to Ted Stevens
-Under Investigation
-Extreme right whinger
-will get owned by Biden in the debate
-Shows Hollow attempt for McCain to out

That's -5. Joe Lieberman would have been a better choice for god sake. she is a horrible choice!!
