A morning edition of this overview is posted daily at the 2012 Electoral College Calculator blog.

Good evening! Apologies for missing yesterday's projection; I had company in town.

To the maps!

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.

    and even digs deeper and deeper and the polls show him getting more and more behind. Rogue Sarah was better than this. At least she gave us laughs instead of insulting every one.

  •  A few questions? (0+ / 0-)

    Thank you for the information.  Just a few questions:

    1) How recent is the data used from, the most recent blog entry appears to be from 9/17/12?  Are you using some kind of RSS feed to obtain your frontloadinghq data or using 9/17 data?

    2) Is the electoral-vote calculation accurate concerning North Carolina?  
    On 9/21/12, North Carolina was listed as being tied with the most recent poll being a Obama 46% Romney 43%  from High Point.  On 9/22/12, Purple Strategies released its NC poll with a Obama 48% Romney 46% result, however, the North Carolina composite result was listed as being 46% Obama vs 47% Romney.

    So with a poll showing a two point Obama lead, the Obama campaign fell 1% in the composite.  Is it possible that the web master of electoral-vote reversed the results when calculating his most recent North Carolina composite projection?

    Alternatively, a favorable Obama PPP poll (with a 1 point Obama lead) was conducted over 9/7-9/9.  Maybe (due to being an old poll) this fell out of the NC composite calculation and conversely pushed the Romney results up?

    Finally, a minor quibble, the electoral-vote and frontloadinghq links seems to be pointing to older 9/11 data as opposed to more recent results.
