They predict: Obama 364
(W. Virginia being too close to call and 5 votes)
Nate Silver is the Man, for sure.
As for the Buzz contest: the AP just called NC (my home state, proud to say, finally) for Obama; which brings the EV count to 364 Obama, 174 McCain (with MO likely still his)
So there weren't many guesses, but we had split tie between me and DgoSteve:

Tiebreaker in effect:
(Dem) 52% 1,110,668
(GOP) 45% 968,508
(Una) 0% 11,626
(Lib) 0% 9,415
Provisionally, Steve gets the prize for being closer to zero percent Barr.
HOWEVER: Nebraska District 2 is still in question
. So if that flips Obama's way, I get the title.
