thought i'd share this site i found.....

http://www.electoral-vote.com/evp2006/Maps/Oct06.html

funny story from that site too:


Finally, a personal note. I am in Vermont now for a week and I went to a lovely church supper yesterday. Who should walk in but Rich Tarrant, Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, facing Bernie Sanders, who is officially an independent, but in practice a Democrat. Tarrant works the room, shaking hands with about 80 people and making small talk with all of them. I was one of the last. So I said to him: "You realize that everyone in this room except for the little kids who are serving and half a dozen cooks is from out of state?" He looked like somebody had just punched him in the stomach. Here is a guy from Vermont who doesn't know the state is overrun by leaf peepers from all over the country the first week of October? He also didn't realize that the supper had been organized by one of the local churches to be neighborly to the tourists and maybe make a little bit of money for the church (they charged $8.50 a head but members of the congregation donated the food). I guess Tarrant is not a member of the reality-based community.

Is that right? I didn't think Florida was 'Strong Dem'...It's so different from Cali. I've come across so many conservative people...even living in a complete college town. :shock:

"strong dem" means the race between harris and nelson. nelson is enjoying a huge lead...hence "strong dem"
