Many Historians See Little Chance for McCain
Historians belonging to both parties saw Barack Obama’s prospects as the most promising for a Democrat since Roosevelt trounced Hoover in 1932. Only twice in the 20th century has a party won a third consecutive term in the White House, most recently in 1988. But the biggest obstacle in McCain’s path may be running in the same party as the most unpopular president America has had since at least the advent of modern polling. Only Harry Truman and Nixon have been nearly as unpopular in their last year in office, and both men’s parties lost the presidency in the following election.

Great Sommelier, I'd love to release that info but unfortunately, it's a vast right and/or left wing conspiracy and I fear I've already said too much.

SArah, are you sure? how many studies were done? Were they independently funded? It just doesn't sound plausable. :wink:

Sounds promising, but you cannot count on anything.

I have a prediction (drumroll please) based on loads of scientific experiments and research: Either Obama or McCain will win. You heard it here first.

As much as I would love to see O win, I just dont't think you can trust these kinds of predictions. You can never tell what makes people vote and how elections are going to play out, especially months in advance. There could be an October surprise for either of them. Plus you can't really know what voters are thinking until you read the exit polls and even then only a portion of people are represented. My parents thought Bush a a craptacular idiot but they both voted for him twice. Now they want to vote for Obama. I was so excited that we liked the same canidate (I'm back in the will!), that I didn't even bother to ask why they chose to support him over McCain even though they have had nothing but nice things to say about Mac.
