With a month to go, here’s the new map. At bottom is the map as of August 30.


The election hinges on youth turnout in Colorado, New Mexico, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia…if it’s high, Obama and Biden win, giving us a leg up on Global Warming, protecting Roe v Wade, and lowering taxes on 95% of Americans (according to independent study). If it’s low, we got McCain and Palin in the White House. Roe v Wade is overturned, energy emphasizes nuclear and offshore drilling, and we’re one 73-year-old heartbeat away from giving the nation’s reins to Palin, governor of about as many folks as filled the Mile High Stadium the other day for Obama’s Convention Nomination-acceptance speech.
