This morning at 7:08 am, I voted alone for the first time in twenty years. I walked the four blocks to my polling place at a local church without my usual entourage -- at least one or two kids and a dog.
More and more, it is looking like Virginia will be the state that decides Election Night in Obama's favor. Sure, it could be Florida or Ohio, but my guess is that the vote-counting is going to take a while in both of them,
The race is no longer about delegates, party rules, or even the popular vote, it's now about electoral votes. And because the race is close, once again a major Constitutional flaw is exposed--the Electoral College.
It's time once again to take a look at the Electoral College math from state-level polling. Nationwide polls are not completely meaningless, but they are pretty irrelevant as that's not how we elect a president.
