Exactly two years ago, SurveyUSA completed interviews with 600 voters in every state (30,000 total interviews), asking them how they would vote in a 2008 Presidential Election between John McCain and Barack Obama. Based on those interviews, SurveyUSA was able to report that:
In November 2006, Obama carried …
- His home state of Illinois.
- His birth state of Hawaii.
- The District of Columbia.
In November 2006, Obama got 28 total electoral votes.
In November 2006, John McCain carried 48 states, and rolled up 510 electoral votes.
How far has Barack Obama come in 24 months?
We’ll know for sure Tuesday night.
What should SurveyUSA poll today, that will teach us something when we look back on it in 2010 or 2012?
We welcome your suggestions, as always.
