Note: @TheMorningSpew accidentally left a few states unassigned and tweeted a request that they be counted as Democrat. So, that makes Spew’s EV totals as Obama 191 to Romney 347.

Smitty’s Electoral Vote Map

Smitty tweeted to add the 8 unassigned electoral votes to Romney, awarding him a whopping 362 to Obama’s 176. And his post at was updated to include his popular vote estimate of:

  • Romney: 59%
  • Obama: 39%
  • Other: 2%

[Thanks for the post, Smitty!]
And @SissyWillis of Sisu decided to piggyback on Smitty’s entry. So if Smitty wins, Sissy will have to read the book prize of his choice over his shoulder. 🙂

UPDATE: When posting Moxie’s entry here, I noted that her map and totals has left some electoral votes unassigned, so I offered her the opportunity to correct it (even though beyond deadline, because I had done the same with other entries, and the delay was my fault)

That concludes all of the *prize-eligible* entries. We had 88 in total. After I vote, I will a few people that missed the deadline but wished to be included.

UPDATE: I forgot to move my own map over here!

My prediction was Obama getting 225 electoral votes and Romney 313, the popular vote being 47.57% for Obama and 52.16% for Romney.
