41. I'm not surprised it's close at all..
Democrats vote for Democrats and Republicans vote for Republicans. Simple as that really. There may be some small crossover but that all evens out. Like every other election the independents are going to be decisive. And they obviously haven't decided yet. I wouldn't be surprised if Obama won, nor would I be surprised if he loses.
