      but without Wisconsin in play he has to win all of North Carolina, Florida, Virginia and Ohio.

      With Wisconsin he can afford to lose one of Ohio, Virginia or North Carolina.

      Bottom line is that Romney is consistently behind by a small margin in a long series of states that he MUST win.

      Wisconsin simply gave him one more possible option for victory. But without Florida the rest don't matter.

        Sorry, taking Ryan loses Fla.  So if you mean he took the only option that might produce a win if he ignores all the downsides of Ryan... well, yeah, and if he had wings he'd be a flight simulator.

        Thugs pulling out of PA is just the tip of what Ryan will cost Mr. 1%.  

        And WI is fools gold.  Even Kerry won it.
