What to watch for tonight

By Bertram de Souza (Contact)


Published November 4, 2008

George Stephanopoulos, one of the architects of Bill Clinton's presidential win in 1992 and now host of a Sunday talk show on ABC, has come up with a list of six states to watch between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. as the polls close: Virginia, Indiana, Ohio, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Florida.

Stephanopoulos has written that Republican John McCain would need to win five of the six in order to have a chance.

On the local level, watch the 4th and 7th wards in the city of Youngstown to get a sense of whether Democrat Barack Obama succeeded in winning over older, white, blue-collar Democratic voters who strongly supported Sen. Hillary Clinton in the March primary.

The biracial Democratic nominee — black father from Kenya, white mother from Kansas — will do extremely well in the predominantly black 1st and 2nd wards, and should have a respectable showing in the 3rd, 5th and 6th. But it will be his votes in the 4th and 7th that will be most telling.
