Voting is well underway, which anyone not living on Pluto already knew. I’ve been out at the polls this morning talking to voters. Taking a break for the next hour and a half to blog and unwind.
Turnout has been through the roof, and Barack Obama has already won the race for Los Angelinos too young to vote. And, not surprisingly, a lawsuit has already been filed by the GOP in Ohio. Virginia, however, is shaping up to be the Ohio/Florida of 2008.
The result: a huge Obama win.
If his forecast were to come true, the Democrat would take 338 electoral votes — 68 more than needed to win. McCain would win 200.
His projections are hardly wild. Of the six Republican-leaning states that have been more fiercely contested in recent days, he gives Ohio, Florida and Virginia to Obama, but Missouri, Indiana and North Carolina to McCain. He allocates Pennsylvania, which McCain has been trying for, to Obama, as do most if not all other independent guessers working off public polls.
