    I understand the sentiment, but without Ohio, Romney is toast. Turning Ohio more reliably blue would make winning the Presidency almost impossible for the GOP.

    VA is getting steadily bluer. NC, maybe, too, though more slowly. But given that today's GOP only knows how to double down, I expect they will start saying (internally, anyway), that VA and NC aren't the "real" South, anyway--that the "real" South is Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, etc.

    Of course, there aren't enough ECs there to win anything. And when Texas turns purple...well, as has been said here many times, the national GOP is turning into a regional, minority party.

    Have a flagon and discuss the news of the day at the sign of the Green Dragon, or hear me roar on Twitter @MarkGreenFuture
