Vol 7.9 "President Obama: Why McCain Can't Win" 9/18/2008

President Obama:
Why McCain Can’t Win

It’s September 18th, 2008. First off, I’d like to say that I hold presidential candidate, Senator John McCain, in the
highest regards, and there is no question in my opinion that he wants what is best for our country.
However, he will not be president of the United States. It’s all in the numbers. The math
doesn’t lie. It may be deceptive, it may be tricky, but numbers don’t have an agenda.
Here is what they say:

Senator McCain is poised to win the following states:

1. Idaho (4)
2. Utah (5)
3. Wyoming (3)
4. Arizona (10)
5. Montana (3)
6. North Dakota (3)
7. South Dakota (3)
8. Nebraska (5)
9. Kansas (6)
10. Oklahoma (7)
11. Texas (34)
12. Louisiana (9)
13. Arkansas (6)
14. Missouri (11)
15. Mississippi (6)
16. Alabama (9)
17. Georgia (15)
18. South Carolina (8)
19. North Carolina (15)
20. Kentucky (8)
21. Indiana (11)
22. West Virginia (5)
23. Alaska (3)
24. Tennessee (11)

If you add up the “guaranteed-in-the-bag” states, you get 200 electoral votes. (You need 270 to be
president.)

If we add up all the states, we realize Senator Obama is going to win, you get the following:

1. Washington (11)
2. Oregon (7)
3. California (55)
4. Colorado (9)
5. New Mexico (5)
6. Minnesota (10)
7. Iowa (7)
8. Wisconsin (10)
9. Illinois (21)
10. Michigan (17)
11. Hawaii (4)
12. Maine (4)
13. New Hampshire (4)
14. Vermont (3)
15. New York (31)
16. Massachusetts (12)
17. Connecticut (7)
18. Rhode Island (4)
19. New Jersey (15)
20. Maryland (10)
21. Delaware (3)
22. District of Columbia (3)
23. Pennsylvania (21)

The total is 273!! Even if we give Senator McCain every other state that might be too close to call , Senator McCain still
comes up short by five electoral votes!

I’m sorry Senator McCain, but even if you clear the board with the states still left, in play, you can’t
mathematically win.

Math doesn’t lie even if we do.

Talk to you next time,
