The Corner

Electoral College

I know everything’s in flux and many sites claim Kerry’s in the lead, got the big Mo etc. But I just decided to go through the LA Times map thingy again. I gave every state that Bush was leading in to Bush and every state that kerry was leading in to Kerry. Many of these margins were tiny and some of the polls were old — Tennessee’s is a month old — but the final tally was 289 to 206 for Bush. I left PA, IA and NJ out because they are exact ties. But even if you give all three to Kerry Bush still wins.

For what it’s worth.
