On our latest Fix electoral map, we have Obama at 349 electoral votes — his highest total since we began picking the playing field earlier this fall — while McCain stands at 189 electoral votes.
And, it’s uniquely possible that Obama could crest 350 electoral votes before all is said and done next Tuesday. The hardest three states for us to pick — Missouri, Indiana and Nevada — were all carried by President George W. Bush in 2000 and 2004. (In the case of Indiana, the Republican presidential nominee has carried the state in every election but one — 1964 — since 1936.)
