    election for president happens, so that having a nine-point lead there is like (only better than) a Nation-wide nine-point lead.
      But yes, state-by-state is more helpful, as each of these is an individual contest.
      What will help too in winning these states is that the battleground goes further into Republican territory than these 12 states. They could lose states like Indiana (Obama won by a hair last time), Missouri (lost by a hair), Arizona, or even Georgia, Montana, or North Dakota.
      Every new state they're forced to contest makes it harder for them to win back the ones they lost the last time.
