US result 2004

I challenged ASwaS on Wednesday last week to predict the winner of each state in the US election - and gave him a deadline of 23 September to make his predictions - still two weeks away. The uber-confident Stephen Glenn has already posted his prediction - long before the deadline. I'm not crazy/confident enough to nail my predictions down yet - I still think a lot may happen in the next 2 weeks - but I thought I'd post some numbers to think about. So, here's what happened in 2004:

Alabama 9

California 55

Alaska 3

You missed out a column for States stolen by the Republicans but cheers for the list, I'll be putting my own blogging neck on the line, no doubt 5 minutes before the deadline!

I think you are confusing 2004 with 2000 Jeff :)

Time sure flies...

And I'm just lowering expectations for my predicting efforts in advance of a can of whoop ass being opened up on me in due course.
