Ramblin' Man Voter Registration
At the beginning of the year, I changed my residence and voter registration to Florida. I am there most of the time now. I can't say that my decision was driven by the November election, but the thought did cross my mind.
New York is a Democratic lock so my vote is not needed there. Florida is an uphill climb, or rather, it was, as polls now show Obama with a Florida lead. Here's a thought experiment - supposing you had to pick a state where you could vote in November which one would it be? I would have said Ohio, but today's Ohio Dispatch poll has Obama leading by 7. Michigan? McCain pulled out. Virginia? Still fairly close there. Ok, I pick Colorado. Because if Obama wins Colorado, his Western strategy (I figure New Mexico and Nevada come with Colorado and Iowa is in the bag) insures an Obama win no matter what happens elsewhere in the battlegrounds. Where would you vote?
