Electoral boogie

Electoral boogie

: Tim Russert broke out his widdle white boards tonight. He says whoever wins two of three states — Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida — will win. They’ll each have to mop up small states (that their side won the last time) to bring it home. But Russert says it all comes down to those three big states.

    i think that’s about right. the midwest is looking a bit iffy for everyone at the moment though.

    So what’s better: (a) the current electoral college system where these swing states seem to hold so much influence; (b) a “traditional” popular vote, where its simply the most votes win (would the candidates only campain in the largest metropolitan areas??); or (c) some other system yet to be envisioned?

    Thanks, Tim. I predict that the one who gets the most electoral votes will win.
    When did we decide that we care what the people who report the news think?
    Off with their (talking) heads!

    What makes it funny is that Tim’s supposed insight has been the conventional wisdom for months. Of course, it looks like Bush is ahead in Wisconsin, which would throw that theory out the window. I guess you have to be way behind the curve to make the big bucks.

    Russert’s dead wrong…
    Kerry needs to win two of the three to win, but Bush doesn’t. If Bush picks up Wisconsin and either Minnesota or Iowa then he doesn’t need either Ohio or Pennsylvania.
    The reality is that if Bush wins either Minnesota or Iowa he likely will have already locked up Ohio anyway, but Russert should really keep his white board in the closet until he figures out how to do electoral math.
