That seems huge. As much as I'd like to see that, I think it's gonna be a bit closer than that.

Re: Election predictions thread

Obama advances to 8-point lead among “traditional likely voters”

The political landscape could be improving for Barack Obama in the waning days of the campaign. Gallup Poll Daily tracking from Oct. 28-30 shows him with an eight percentage point lead over John McCain among traditional likely voters -- 51% to 43% -- his largest margin to date using this historical Gallup Poll voter model.

Obama's current 11-point lead over McCain among all registered voters -- 52% to 41% -- is up from an eight-point lead in yesterday's report, and ties his highest advantage on this basis, last recorded 10 days ago. (To view the complete trend since March 7, 2008, click here.)

I further predict that the news on all fronts, (Iraq, Afghanistan, the economy, various domestic "crises") will suddenly take a turn for the better after Tuesday. The news broadcasts will re-discover everything that is good about America quite literally overnight.

I also predict that many male Obama supporters will be chagrinned on election night when they are unable to parlay hours of envelope stuffing into action with the cute female Obama supporters.

Things will pretty much stay the same for the vast majority of us.

This forum will return to late night discussions about television shows, hot supermodels, monkeys that throw their own crap, and the occasional bleg for advice on car-buying, computer troubleshooting, and interior decorating.

Oh, and Keith Olbermann's ratings will start dying a long, slow death as the the political fad dies and young people flip to "Gossip Girl" and "So You Want to be an Albino Stripper".
70, you're pretty much on point with your predictions except for the part about making out with the cute female supporters:

The danger for Obama is that many of his supporters see these polls and think "It's in the bag, I'll just stay home and watch that SNL skit online again" and meanwhile, McCain supporters are actually getting out there and voting.

Perhaps, but I don't think that will happen.

I think there's almost a sense of urgency out there among voters, turnouts are going to be big.

I have to vote in Columbia Maryland and have to drive from Frederick Maryland after class... My class gets out at 3:15.. Given traffic and such I believe I'll be in Columbia by about 4:30-5 at the latest. If I'm in line before polls close, I still get to vote... Right? They're not gonna be like, "Oops, it's 8, get out of line, bitches."

As long as you're in line you'll get to vote. Period.
