well that book is very biased and i would call it more fantasy than reality and as for the gop's base as long as they keep saying god is on their side while the dems keep playing the middle they will keep winning

as for the scenario i would look at every senator is who is in his early 40's to late 30's and call him or her a major candidate in 2012

True enough just about every senator runs for president sometime in his career. I think this list should be fine for now. Only thing I would like to add is Newsome, Spitzer and Romney. That should be a wide range of candidates.

Next step is adding all the state information. Florida is going to be even more important, and Ohio is projected to lose 2 electoral collage votes according to the report I read. ANyone think Louisiana will lose electoral votes? They wouldnt necessairly have to lose people, but just be a smaller percent of the nation's population.

I thought the same thing, I dont want an American war of the Roses...house of Clinton vs House of Bush.

Alright I added population projections and fixed some of the congressional majority and overnor majority information. Now all I have to do is add regional issue data and tweak things up a bit.

I should double-check my electoral college numbers as well.

The Numbers Ive gotten are from republican sites, but they look about right. Main disagreement is if Texas will gain 2 or 3 if NY will lose 1 or 2 and if LA will lose 1...which seems even more likely now.

Mainly midwestern states will lose 1 and so will MA

They both agree AZ CA and NV will gain 1 Florida will gain 2

Ill see if i can find some numbers from a more liberal site, to se if they differ.

Im a bit surprised AZ doesnt gain more

I think Immigration will be a huge issue for the forseeable future.

But these were spot on
