Will Black Turnout In Red States Spell Doom For McCain?

Could black folks cast the deciding collective vote in Election 2008?

On Sunday's Meet the Press, NBC political director Chuck Todd said that early voting among African Americans — "somewhere between 95 and 100 percent in some states" — could undermine Sen. John McCain's standing in places that he is favored to win, like Georgia and North Carolina. (That's assuming, of course, that all of those votes are for Sen. Barack Obama.)

What do you think? Do you live in a state that allows early voting? If you've already cast your ballot, tell us your story.
