Carville thinks It is Over
James Carville has essentially called the election for Bush. He says his contacts in Ohio are not able to give him any good news.
Carville has been around the block and should be taken seriously. But he isn’t infallible and I’d rather wait and see the numbers from Cleveland and Cincinnati.
It seems likely that the final numbers will still be close. But 51% takes home the whole election.
That isn’t any consolation. It is now often forgotten that Reagan’s 1984 landslide victory over Mondale was close in a lot of states. But you rack up enough 51%’s and you win by a landslide, in the American system.
