We have been bombarded with National and State Polls for over a year. We know that the candidate who will be elected President will be the one who earns 270 or more electoral votes. Who do you predict will be elected President? How many Electoral Votes will he or she receive?
Below is the electoral votes earned for the past 7 elections.
- Obama, 2012–332 votes
- Obama, 2008–352 votes
- Bush, 2004–286 votes
- Bush, 2000–271 votes
- Clinton, 1996–379 votes
- Clinton, 1992–370 votes
- Bush, 1988–426 votes
Also, here are links to web sites that predict how many electoral votes each candidate will receive. The NPR site is very interactive. You get to adjust how different populations (i.e. White Women, White Men, Black, Hispanic, other) will vote, and that will adjust the number of electoral votes each candidate will receive.
You are on your honor to Vote Once. (Each computer can be used to vote only once.) Voting ends at Noon on Tuesday.
Feel free to also put your prediction in the comments.
