I’m Calling the Mercer Island Election: Obama Wins

Perhaps it’s early to call the election, since no one’s voted yet. And perhaps it’s facile, since 2004 King County election results showed 65% for Kerry and 34% for Bush. But it also gets this post out in front of all others that will inevitably call the election in favor of Obama (aka “That One“).

On Sunday, biking through a few neighborhoods around Southwest Island, my husband and I counted yard signs. Our highly scientific survey resulted in 16 yards with Obama/ Biden signs and 3 with McCain/ Palin signs, if you count one car sticker. We gave that one to McCain given the otherwise poor showing.

That doesn’t include the grandaddy of yard signs at Island Crest Way and 40th:

One final note: there’s a debate watch party on the Island: sponsored by Obama fans, but open to everyone. This Wednesday, 5:50 p.m.
