Electoral Vote Projections

I've added a new temporary widget to the top of my side bar. It shows projected Electoral College results for Obama and McCain. It comes from, a web site that projects electoral college results (as well as Senate and House results) based on analysis of a wide range of polls. He has Obama as substantially ahead in projected electoral votes as of today (338 with 270 needed to win). The "Votemaster" claims to be unbiased in his statistical analysis, but if you doubt this, he suggests that you can look at a similar site run by a "rabid Republican," (this site also has Obama in the lead, but with only 273 electoral votes as of today).

Of course the only poll that counts is on election day, but it's still interesting to see how the race is shaping up in this crazy electoral college system of ours!
