Johnny Delegate-Seed, 277 Votes on the 12,000-mile Campaign Trail
At RealClearPolitics.com, you can create your own delegate map.
Above, a Johnny Delegate-Seed record of my 16-week road trip. If you give Obama every state that I will have visited between July 15 and Election Day (when I arrive back in NC), he gets 277 electoral votes to McCain's 261.
The "home stretch" is key -- I'm picking up 96 delegates between October 11 and November 1 on the southern third of my route.
And of note: every little decision counts. I almost skipped Oregon and Wyoming for a ten delegate swing. Whew.
have you considered a detour thru florida on your way back?
