    I didn't proofread well and realize I was wrong to call my first blockquote the "one" credible thing in the CNN story.  It wasn't the only one, and it actually wasn't the most credible point...the second blockquote was a bigger deal to me.

      To see the number of articles insisting he can't win there when the polling and both campaigns say otherwise. Particularly the Romney campaign. Almost makes me think there is an agenda there. A lot of disconnect right now on a number of fronts.

        ...that everyone acknowledges current polling establishes a tossup, but there are good reasons to think that won't hold because certain demographics (young whites and maybe middle-aged white swing voters) that Obama needs are not going to show up in sufficient numbers or give him the margins he needs, and also because the turnout model likely will end up including higher GOP vote share than last time.

        Those are plausible arguments.

        But they still amount to speculation, not a current reality.
