Electoral Map Update

Monday, October 18th, 2004 · No Comments

Nearly a month ago, the Electoral Vote Predictor 2004 showed a Bush lead of 273-255 over Kerry.

Not that I’ve put much weight in polling all along, but I’d just like to point out for the record that the map currently shows Kerry polling ahead, 257-247. Good news indeed.

Hopefully this will put skeptics like my wife a bit at ease in these final weeks before November 2.

In related news, the New York Times has officially endorsed Kerry. Check out this excerpt: “We have specific fears about what would happen in a second Bush term, particularly regarding the Supreme Court. The record so far gives us plenty of cause for worry. Thanks to Mr. Bush, Jay Bybee, the author of an infamous Justice Department memo justifying the use of torture as an interrogation technique, is now a federal appeals court judge. Another Bush selection, J. Leon Holmes, a federal judge in Arkansas, has written that wives must be subordinate to their husbands and compared abortion rights activists to Nazis.”
