Both side ignored West Virginia last time. Bush has been here at least four times now, as president, and Kerry has been here three times campaigning. We only have the five votes, but they are both contending for them. I think the real battle ground will be Ohio, as Rov said.
I'm flattered to be mistaken for her, but that was actually Cardie.
. Not that I disagree with her analysis...
109 electoral votes within the margin of error. Which effectively means this race is still neck and neck.
True, but Kerry has been gradually rising. If it were held today, I have no doubt that Kerry would win. We'll see what happens next. Bush is starting to strike back. The anticipation is a blitz in August, and then there's the convention in mid-September.
I didn't see anything on the site that called the race for Kerry. He seems to be saying it's still neck and neck. He predicts that the bounce Kerry got in the college will even out after the Republican convention.
I'd hardly call that shilling for anyone.

Ogami: Thanks to that campaigning, Bush got the electoral votes he needed to win. Too late, the Gore team decided to contest the election in Florida, when they had already lost the war.
While the 2000 election narrative is complex, you have a point. People who say that "Gore won the popular vote!" overlook the fact that both candidates would have acted differently if they were TRYING to win the popular vote.
Anna-- I agree that these polls are largely meaningless. Ever since Dean was anointed the Democratic candidate by the media, this election has been one incident after another proving how often the conventional wisdom is simply wrong....
