49 Out of 51

A little over a week ago, I predicted the results of yesterday's presidential race on a state-by-state basis. As it turns out, I was right in 49 of my 51 predictions.

I called Florida for Senator John McCain, but he lost by approximately 2% of the vote. Quite frankly, I knew I got that one wrong as soon as Florida Governor Charlie Crist announced that he wouldn't attend the McCain victory party in Florida.

I also called South Carolina for now-President Elect Barack Obama. He lost that state, however, by a rather decisive 9%.

In the end, I proved to be 96% accurate. That's not too bad, if I may say so myself.
