Okay everyone it's your last chance to take a stand on this and place your bet for all to see, because this contest ends tonight on account of I guessed wrong about how many days were left until the election
Unless GS or someone can revise it, it was supposed to end tomorrow night ....


I still think it's gonna be close.

Er, Monday here. Which is perfect. Thanks for the adjustment.

I'm guessing 2% and change now. Ha!


"Voters in Colorado, Tennessee, Texas and West Virginia have reported using touch-screen machines that at least initially registered their choice for the wrong candidate or party.

“I pushed the Democrat ticket, and it jumped to the Republican ticket for president of the United States,” said Calvin Thomas, 81, an Obama supporter who tried to vote early in Ripley, W.Va. “I’m a registered Republican, and I’ve voted in every presidential election since 1948. I don’t like seeing my vote do something I didn’t tell it to do. I take that real serious.”

Mr. Thomas’s daughter, Micki Clendenin, said the same thing had happened to her.

In both cases, poll workers at the site had them touch the screen a few more times, and the voting machine changed their ballot to their candidate choice. State and local officials said these were isolated cases and that poll workers had fixed the problems.

Judging that most polls, historically, are skewed in the favor of the democrats and they're showing Obama up by 4-6 points, I'd say that Obama will win with about 2% to 3% over.
