Watch These States on November 4

A sporting event is far more exciting to watch when you know something about the teams and players before watching the event. On November 4, 2008 the presidential election will be an exciting event. It will be more exciting for those who are watching the results come in for the top ten states that are presently "undecided" on the candidates.

Battleground States and their Electoral Votes:

  • Colorado (9)
  • Florida (27)
  • Indiana (11)
  • Iowa (7)
  • Missouri (11)
  • New Mexico (5)
  • Nevada (5)
  • North Carolina (15)
  • Ohio (20)
  • Virginia (13)

Check out the yahoo political dashboard for up-to-date statistics. It also allows you to play "what if" scenarios, turning switching the combination of red and blue states to see the effect on the electoral vote count.

Based on the polling I've seen, I would add North Dakota and West Virginia to the list. There also are some "red states" where the polling is old. I think a few of them will flip to swing states when the polling is updated.
