REAL CLEAR'S MAP SHIFTS. OBY DROPS TO 201 DOWN FROM 265 ELECT VOTES WITH 156 TOSS UPS BUT IT DOESN'T SHOW ROMNEY UP BY +7 IN FLA AND VA AND UP BY +2
BUT ON THE BRIGHT SIDE THE PORN INDUSTRY SUPPORTS OBY.:happyanim
Anyone look at the map today? For the first time since the general election cycle began, Romney now has the lead in electoral votes.
And New Jersey has moved to "lean Obama" fro "likely". Maybe just MAYBE these states are not as partisan as we though ( I did say maybe).
well, realistically New Jersey is not in play. nor do I honestly think Pennsylvania and Michigan are either. But I do feel like Wisconsin is.
if Mitt Romney pulls off Ohio it's not gonna matter anyway.

There are a number of ways Romney can get to 270 especially considering that most likely he is going to win, FL, NC, VA giving him 248.
I do feel Penn is not likely, BUT, I would not be shocked if went for Mitt. Same with Michigan, but I would be surprised (not shocked) if it went for Mitt.
I think New Hampshire is likely or "leaning" to Mitt, same with Colorado. That would give him 261. Needing only WI or Iowa and Nevada (which I don't feel as good about, and I don't know why).
A new poll shows Republican Mitt Romney leading in Pennsylvania, a state that Republicans had all but written off just weeks ago but which is now listed as a toss up by the Real Clear Politics website.
Susquehanna Polling and Research provided The Washington Examiner with a poll it conducted for state party officials that shows Romney with a 49 percent to 45 percent lead over President Obama.
It's the first poll to show Romney leading among likely voters in the Keystone State.
Wheres Galen for the spin? I could really use his "insight" right now.
I'll do a spin here for Galen. That Examiner link has PA as a toss up state or "up for grabs." OBY is
still ahead in Ohio. PA hasn't voted GOP since 1988 and W Bush made more visits and spent more there than
ever to win it and still lost it even though his PoP won it.
Now back to our spin. As far as the "up for grabs," the link's 4 pt lead for Mitt is 1 pt beyond the margin of error which
means it's a legitimate lead for Mitt. That puts is slightly beyond a toss up state. Nevada, Iowa and Colorado are all
with the maargin of error of 3 points which means it's tied there.
Mitt's leading in Fla too and is even wooing the hispanic vote. Getting Ohio or PA
with FlA makes it real close. Getting all 3 states seals it before Californians even vote.
This from hotair.com which doesn't mention PENN.
Romney, according to RCP, has 191 electoral votes. If you add Florida (29), North Carolina (15), and Virginia (13), that brings his total to 248 electoral votes. Add Colorado (9) –which neither campaign is prepared to claim or concede–and Romney’s total rises to 257 electoral votes. If Romney wins Ohio (18) in addition to these states, he would have 275 electoral votes. If Romney loses Ohio, he would need to win Iowa, Nevada, and New Hampshire to reach 273 electoral votes.
If this PA lead builds and Mitt gets its 21 votes he doesn't need Ohio's 20 pts.
Mitt's prob in Ohio is his opposition to the auto bailout but he may not even need it if his lead continues to build in PA.
Either way it's looking grim for Team O.
This could now end in a tie which Rasmussen called about 2 months ago with
the House deciding.
Not according to this, which is what I used.
Either way, if Mitt wins PA he can win the elect vote w/o OH. If he gets both and he just might after OBY
blowing and 11 pt lead in Ohio, it's over before people even vote in Calif. That has happened before. The election
was decided as Californians were driving to vote. I'd be pissed too just like living here and voting.
My vote doesn't count because the DEM almost always gets MDs elect votes, so I'm just wasting time.
