I don’t know about the rest of you, but I for one am really started to wonder just how much MSNBC is cooking the books to keep the notion of this election being a horse race alive. Earlier this week with much fanfare MSNBC debuted their electoral college projection map. As the map and numbers came on the screen my first response was “what the fuck?”. Since I check out the other online projection maps daily I knew there was something wrong with MSNBC’s projection, to call it conservative is an understatement at best. Look at the MSNB numbers compared to other projections available (as of 4/06/08):

Also why doesn’t MSNBC like the other projections tell us the source of their data is? I leave it for you to decide is MSNBC cooking the books for entertainment value or are their numbers to be trusted?
