Ok, we have Obama and McCain. I've been hearing about Hispanic votes and New Mexico as a key State for Obama to win with Hispanics. Uhm, New Mexico only carries 5 electoral votes. Also, has anyone looked at the numbers of eligible black and Hispanic voters? They're negligible. Total eligible Hispanic voters in the US 17,315,000 Total eligible Black voters in the US 24,115,000 Total eligible White Voters in the US 151,110,000 52% of white eligible voters are women 48% of white eligible voters are men http://pewhispanic.org/files/factsheets/34.pdf I want to throw out the numbers and see what everyone thinks will be key to a victory for Obama or McCain. Electoral votes by state. http://www.fec.gov/pages/elecvote.htm Another good website for reference as we head to November is http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2008/03/throw_out_the_maps_in_2008.html Lots of good statistics. All of the best polls shown and most up to date. Not biased. I'd like to see this thread as a reflection of what is happening in the following months and as a way to help us all make informed choices. So much happens, many of us simply cannot take the time we'd like to stay on top of everything and wade through the "mud" that will no doubt be slung.
