Over 1000 of you have come to look at these graphs, but I still have too little feedback. Please tell
me what you think - thanks!
To make sense of any of this you must understand the Electoral
Red states are states that went for Bush in
Blue states are states that went for Kerry in
States to the left of the line are projected
to go for Obama.
States to the right of the line are projected
to go for McCain.
The further left or right they extend, the further the projected
margin of victory
The thicker the bar for a state is, the more electoral votes it has.
The numbers inbetween states near the finish line mark how far that
boundary is from the finish line.
The projected winner is the person who takes the state on the finish
Hover over a state for more information about it.
More information in my
diary entries - add that diary to your hotlist if this sort of thing interests you, I'll be doing more up to and during election night. I have a plan
for updating this graph during election night as states are called by the networks.
