Chuck Todd: If McCain Wins All Toss-Ups He Still Loses


www.huffingtonpost.com

NBC News' final map gives Barack Obama the win:

With two days before Election Day, the final NBC News map shows Obama remaining above the 270 electoral-vote mark, with a 286-157 lead over McCain. Last week, Obama held a 286-163 advantage. Our changes: We moved Montana and North Dakota (which has same-day voter registration) from Lean McCain to Toss-up. In addition, we moved Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and New Jersey (the latter of which we should have moved a couple of weeks ago) from Lean Obama to Likely Obama. So here's where we stand:


Likely Obama: CA, CT, DE, DC, HI, IL, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, NJ, NY, OR, RI, VT, WA, WI (227 electoral votes)

Lean Obama: CO, IA, NH, NM, PA, VA (59 votes)

Toss-up: FL, IN, MO, MT, NV, NC, ND, OH (95 votes)

Lean McCain: AZ, GA, NE 02, SD, WV (24 votes)

Likely McCain: AL, AK, AR, ID, KS, KY, LA, MS, NE (the rest of the state), OK, SC, TN, TX, UT, WY (133 votes)

On Meet The Press Sunday morning, Chuck Todd tells Tom Brokaw that even if McCain wins all of those toss-ups, he'll still lose.

Of course all of this is pure speculation... still it doesn't look good for McCain.

Granted he could still pull it off but if he does it will rank up there with the Truman defeat of Dewey.

I find it hard to imagine that so many people polled are lying about their preference. That is what a margin of error is supposed to cover.

Still no matter how you cut it the next 72 hours will be a nail biter for everybody concerned...

... except for the so-called "third party" candidates that is.

Propaganda, plain and simple. I don't care how the media paints these polls, they are ALWAYS skewed in favor of the candidate (or idea) that the media supports. It's easy to fix "randomized" poll results, after all. And if anyone thinks that the media is honest and won't lie about anything that promotes their agenda, that person is fooling themselves.

Another point to remember is this: the electoral college needn't cast votes according to the population that they supposedly represent. That's right, chuckles, your vote means NOTHING. When TPTB want someone to be a president, they MAKE that person into a president. This is more of a waiting game than a guessing game.
