    At least two people on that list (OB and myself) did not vote for Obama.

    A much better position to what? Win Utah?

    Kicky, do you mind stating who you're voting for (or would vote for--maybe you're not registered in AZ yet or something) and why? I'm more interested in the why. Why one and not the other? In as long and detailed a version as possible. I'm actually genuinely interested as you're one of the more intelligent, well-informed, objective posters on the board.

    Since we've had a mini-debate about quants vs. simple averages in polls I'll tell you this at this point in the race in terms of how close it will be so you can judge the performance of more sophisticated analysis at a later date.

    The Big 4 regression guys in this election (Silver, Linzer, Wang, and Jackman) have all converged on 332 as the most likely number of electoral votes for Obama. The second most likely is 303 electoral votes. The third most likely is 347. I suspect all of those numbers reflect a race that is not as close as you believe (personally I suspect 303 is the right number) and it will be interesting to get your take on this after we get the final result.

    I voted for Jill Stein.

    Arizona is non-competitive. Romney has always had the state. The real reason to turn-out is the Flake/Carmona Senate election (which Flake will probably win anyway).

    I don't know if you're interested in hearing about why I like Stein as it kind of flies in the face of the premise of your question (which presumed I was voting for one of the two major candidates). Also I've been successfully trolling The Madame (who voted for Obama) by pointing out repeatedly that I'm the bigger feminist now.

    I think they are counting on numbers that will not hold up today.

    I haven't seen any numbers but it's being reported that exit polls show that the race is incredibly tight.

    R: NC, FL
    O: OH, NH, PA, MI, NV
    TOSS UP: VA, CO, IA
    Obama wins those 5 and it's over regardless of where VA, CO or IA end up.

    Yeah, I really am interested actually. Why Stein and not Obama or Romney? I'd love the long version too. Dead serious.

    If exit polls are close now just wait until all the Republicans get off work.

    Democrats have been busy shopping on the food stamps your hard works provides.
    They might be a little late the polling booths as well.

    Not only that, but most of us democrats haven't even got up yet. Wait till we start getting out of bed, then we'll see a major shift in the polls, lol.

    Seriously though, if the polls are close, Romney is finished. Obama already holds a commanding lead among early voters. Romney has to make up a lot of ground in order to win.

    Looks like OH has been moved back to "toss up" status.

    Did it ever change? It's always been too close to call.
