Play The Obama-Clinton Electoral College Challenge Game

Play The Obama-Clinton Electoral College Challenge Game

I have given Obama 60+ votes more than he needs to win the required 270 electoral votes. Obama Victories are marked with a *.

Look down the list. Subtract all Obama wins you don't agree with.

Add states you think he will win.

See if your final total is more than 270.

If it is more than 2770, you and Barack WIN.

While you are at it, note that Hillary Clinton's argument about being a big state winner is utterly irrelevant. Obama will win them as easily as she would. And she would not win anything like the rest. Obama would.

I have NOT given Obama Florida. If you think I am being too pessimistic, add it in. You have around 60 votes you can jettison and still Obama will win.

If you have any question who the strongest Democratic nominee is, play with this game a while.

Total Electoral Vote: 538; Majority Needed to Elect: 270
