Battleground States

In the quick pre-election poll, I asked Readers which battleground states Obama would carry. The results:

State NAPP Reader
Actual Result
Florida 62% Obama
Indiana 37% Obama
Missouri 25% No decision yet
Montana 12% McCain
Nevada 62% Obama
North Carolina 50% No decision yet
North Dakota 25% McCain
Ohio 37% Obama
Virginia 75% Obama

Overall, I’d say that was a fair read on the situation by you Readers. The big surprise, I think, is Indiana (I predicted that state would stay with the GOP, too), although I’m surprised that not even a majority of Readers predicted Obama’s nail-the-coffin-shut win in Ohio.
