Now that we have the gift of hindsight...

This is an experimental poll. I guess now that we witnessed 2 years of a hard-fought campaign, the question can safely be asked. I'm looking for:
When did you know that Obama would win? (personal opinion)
When did it become clear that Obama would win? (public perception)

Poll #1292029 Election Hindsight

When was it "Game Over"?

March 4: McCain becomes presumptive nominee
0(0.0%)
June 5: Clinton concedes primary to Obama
0(0.0%)
August 29: Introducing Sarah Palin
9(20.9%)
September 15: McCain: "The fundamentals of our economy are strong."
6(14.0%)
September 24: McCain "suspended his campaign" to deal with the financial crisis
2(4.7%)
September 26: First presidential debate
0(0.0%)
October 2: Vice-presidential debate
0(0.0%)
October 7: Second presidential debate
0(0.0%)
October 15: Third presidential debate
1(2.3%)
October 19: Colin Powell endorses Obama
4(9.3%)
November 4: Wasn't sure until 11pm when 270 was reached
10(23.3%)
Other
11(25.6%)

If other, please explain:



EDIT: If you think the economy played a significant yet gradual role in the election outcome, please feel free to select September 15.
