Wargaming the Electoral College

Larry Sabato's map remains unchanged since June. He calls only two states differently than I do, giving both Nevada and West Virginia to Kerry. Nevada's a toss-up, and I had a hell of a time deciding which column to put it in. In the end, I figured the Republican organizational edge would make the difference there.
