    or read this diary from this morning to see how bad Romney's situation is.

    That is right now, in the electoral college.

    But 8 weeks is a lifetime in an election.

      If there is one bad economic report between now and the election, the "mainstream media" will be pounding on Obama 24/7 and trying to move the needle in Romney's direction.  The media clowns will be scouring economic news every day looking for something to throw in the president's face.

      •  I don't know, I think the public is adopting the (0+ / 0-)

        attitude that the economy isn't great, but Obama stopped the hemorrhaging at the critical moment and the Repubs have screwed him and thus the public.  In other words, they see the truth and they're giving the prez the credit he deserves and they like him so it's all good.

    •  Yeah, it's possible... but... (1+ / 0-)

      I've run through the scenarios multiple times and ways. If he is losing Virginia then he is likely losing some of the other states he MUST win without Virginia. Ditto if he is losing Ohio (he is) and if he is losing Florida (he is) then he is completely toast.

      Now... let's start working on Missouri, Montana, South Dakota, and North Dakota.
