A few additional things to consider that may tip in McCain's favor.

1). Exit polls on early voting in Florida give McCain a 49-45 lead over Democrat Barack Obama among Floridians who have already voted. And Republicans are leading 50 percent to the Democrats' 30 percent in the 1.2 million absentee ballots already returned

2). In Appalachia you have the "Andrew Jackson Democrats", and it covers parts of Kentucky, West Virginia and Pennsylvania where Obama could likely suffer from the Bradley Effect.

3). The Palin Effect, whether you see it negative or positive, I know a lot of women that have switched to McCain-Palin since she was chosen as McCain's running mate. The one's that I've spoke with that have not switched are rabid liberals.

4). The wealth redistribution effect.

5). The"hanging out with bad guys" effect. Rashid Khalidi, Bill Ayers, Reverend "God &%$# America" White, ACORN, Bernadine Dohrn, etc.

Let's hope we're right on this one...we got too much at stake.

It's interesting to see that John McCain's supporters base his best chance of winning this election on racism and sex appeal. I didn't see that on his platform.

See you at the polls on Tuesday!

Number 4 is the biggie. Its been all downhill for your guy, Chris, since he spoke that one honest sentence.
