    Electoral College

    [​IMG]


    --although it is important that you vote, note that it is the electoral college stats that will 'really' count in the end! So far it looks like a landslide for President Obama!

    A landslide?

    According to this map he is five votes short.

    According to the RCP map there are 82 toss up votes which this map is giving to Romney.

    Exclude those predictions and Obama is way ahead but needs five electoral votes to swing his way.

    Republicans are counterfeit...therefore I can no longer acknowledge anything 'according' to the RCP!

    President Obama will be re-elected. Mitt Romney will loose. And I will achieve my goals beyond my wildest dreams:hearts1:

    RCP has nothing to do with the Republicans.

    It is a political website:Real Clear Politics which is one of the most reliable sites which posts polling data collected from every major polling site.

    It has electoral maps similar to the one you posted, with and without toss up data.

    Next time be very clear and provide a link and/or 'spell' out your acronymn -- this avoids a confused perception about what you are talking about, since Real Clear Politics (RCP) has nothing what so ever to do with the topic I opened about the "The Electoral College".

    The popular vote is important from a patriotic sense, yet it is the "Electoral College" that decides who will be the next president within the context of any election.

    It has a lot to do with the topic because as I stated it is a site that posts election polls and maps similar to the one you posted.

    More importantly, none of this changes the fact that the projected electoral map you posted does not show Obama winning by a landslide. It shows him with only 265 electoral votes which is five short of the number needed to win.
