Head on over to Electoral-Vote.com to see how close. In just a few days, the totals have shifted from Bush: 257 Kerry: 243 to Kerry: 257 Bush: 247. In other words, get ready for a nail-biter election and (sadly) the inevitable court challenges.
The key changes? Wisconsin going for Kerry in recent polls and Iowa is now up for grabs. Also surprising is Bush's weak support in Virginia. At 50-47, the race is a statistical dead heat. If Bush loses what should be a guaranteed southern state (Florida not included), it would put him in serious jeopardy.
