The polls , as a whole, were pretty accurate. Predictions were at about 52% for Obama, 43% for McCain with some so called undecided votes.
And yes, it was a major landslide - simply because of the fact that Obama took states that have been comfortably Republican for decades - states that would vote Republican even if the candidate never showed there faces there during an entire campaign. I'm in N.C , and he narrowly won here which I didn't even expect.
Winning 364 electoral votes is a blowout, similar to Clinton winning over an unpopular Bush senior.
<It's a historic unifying moment that will go down in history.
Yes it was. But that doesn't make it a landslide. He had a decent margin of victory - 6% about half of what's been predicted by polls for the last few weeks for a subservent media.
And if he produce good results, then people can rightly feel foolish for voting for all those reasons instead of judging how his policies would be for the country.
