Electoral Politics

If I was a betting man and the election was held today, I'd bet that President Obama would win 303 electoral votes to 235 for Governor Romney.  However, 8.5 weeks is a long time.  Four years ago, the last 8 weeks changed the election.

Governor Romney obviously has to win Florida, Ohio, and Virginia and either Iowa or Colorado.  It's going to be tough for him to pull it out.

I don't want to hear any comments about the source of the map. It's from HuffPo's Pollster site. It's the best one to manipulate (i.e., change state winners) and I trust the Pollster team's aggregated data.

I'm just glad the conventions are over. Enough of this pre-fight banter, let's see these two lace up and throw down. Bring on the debates.
