Sadly, I'm standing by my pessimism and picking Bush with about 300-310 electoral votes. I just think all these fence-sitters are going to jump on Bush. The difference between this election and previous elections where the undecided break for the challenger is that I imgaine they're all peacetime votes. I just find it hard to believe the American public can separate its loyalty to the troops from its loyalty to the particular man who is Commander-in-Chief, no matter how poor a job he's doing.
On the other hand, there is a part of me that really looks forward to Kerry winning the electoral vote and Bush losing the popular vote. And even if Kerry wins outright, I long to see Republican flag-wavers rally behind President Kerry with the same patriotic enthusiasm for President Bush. God, that'll be fucking fun! And I'll take some incredible dare if I'm wrong and the flag-wavers truly rally behind President Kerry. But, as I said above, I think the senator will lose.
