I was on CNN.com and plugged in my predictions for which candidate would win various states and the outcome was the map above. A tie.
This is a possible outcome of tonights electoral college distribution. A tie, where each candidate has 269 electoral votes. 270 is needed to win. In this scenario the American People would not determine the next President of the United States. The House of Representatives would make this decision in December. And this would likely give Obama the advantage, and also make him the first President to be elected by our own government, rather than the people.
Could this happen this year? I hope not, but this election looks like it could be close and this map may not be as crazy as it seems. Then again, as I predicted a couple of weeks ago, this could be a very blue map by the end of the evening showing a Obama landslide victory.
