McCain 510 Electoral Votes, Obama 28 … How the Map Looked Exactly 2 Years Ago

SurveyUSA Breaking News - 11/03/08 05:00 PM

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 … 

  1. His home state of Illinois.
  2. His birth state of Hawaii.
  3. 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.

I don’t know if this is useful for 2010 or 2012, but I’d like SurveyUSA to ask this question either today, or in January: “Who did you vote for in 2004?” I think it would be an interesting reflection on Bush’s last four years to see how many people tell a pollster in 2008/9 that they voted for Bush in 2004.

I’d like a survey showing the results of a 2012 Palin vs. Obama election.I’m hoping she ends up utterly destroying the Republican Party. Of course, I may be slightly biased.
