If political junkies need another way to spend their idle time, allow me to recommend the Washington Post’s newest gadget, The Electoral College Prediction Map.
The map lets readers see which presidential candidate would win the 2008 general election, based on different scenarios.
Users can pick how each state will vote in November. As a guide they can use either the results from the 2004 general election or the primary results to date on the Republican and Democratic sides.
The truly dedicated can save their picks, send them to friends, or embed their map on a Web site or Facebook page.
Here are some of my past Picks:
