Do you think this site is accurate?
Electoral Vote Predictor 2004: Kerry 307 Bush 211
It's different from many of the other national polls, but I'm not sure if it's entirely accurate, since the poll dates among different states vary.

It's not accurate because as far as I know you can't predict the future. :rolleyes:

EDIT: You can predict what you think will happen but as far as I know we can't see into the future.

Anybody can predict the future... it is the accuracy of those predictions which is often not very reliable.

but then, if the website IS right about its figures, then are you to admit that it is accurate and rely on it the NEXT election?

Well, of course I didn't mean that it's getting the numbers exactly right at this point. Nonetheless, it paints a far different picture than national polls which show the race to be very close to even.

Where did I say it's right aboot its figures? I've said from the beginning Bush 50% Kerry 47%. Bush is going to win for better or worse.

Probably as accurate as this one.

Bush Landslide!

Hopefully, this one will turn out to be true.

"In what some political observers might view as shocking news, a poll of America Online members is currently forecasting a landslide victory for President Bush, who collects 48 of the 50 states in this year's electoral race."

no surprises there.
