Graph of Electoral Vote Projections

Electoral Vote Projection

The purpose of this post is to track and report the combined averages and trends of several leading and credible Electoral Map predictions week by week. National polls are useless in projecting the voting outcome in November. The only thing that determines who will be our next President is the outcomes state by state, which directs outcome in the Electoral College.

Data for the combined graphs comes from Huffington Post, Real Clear Politics, Washington Post, CNN, and the New York Times.

This a weekly post. The raw data is below the fold.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
