It is only two days left until Election Day in the United States on November 4. The next elected president will either been Democratic Presidential nominee Senator Barack Obama of Illinois or GOP Presidential nominee Senator John McCain of Arizona. So far, it has been revealed that Obama has been picking up ground in states that current US President George W. Bush has won back in 2000 and 2004.
As a result, it is forcing McCain to play defense in those red states. At the same time, Obama and McCain are heavily fighting it out in the crucial battleground states such as Florida, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, and Colorado. It has been revealed that wins in Florida and Ohio are crucial towards victory.
While the number of Democratic votes outnumbers GOP votes, it is unknown who got most of them. There could be a number of Democratic votes that went to McCain and there could be a number of GOP votes that went to Obama. According to CNN and other new outlets, there has been a bigger turnout from Democratic voters than GOP voters.
Obama’s campaign manager David Plouffe explains that they used a national network.
The Democrats have outnumbered the Republicans in regards to early voting. But remember, we will not know until and after Election Day on who ended up getting most of the votes.
For all we know, most could either go to Obama or McCain. While it is confirmed that there have been more Democratic voters participating in early voting, there is no concrete proof as of yet on whether most of them either went to Obama or McCain. We will have to wait until Election Day.
Perhaps we might even have to wait until after Election Day. It is expected that polling areas will come across turmoil on Election Day.
For the time being, we can speculate. Also, there is still the chance to participate in the early voting before November 4.
