  •  I have a feeling that some wayyyy R state.... (6+ / 0-)

    ... is going to go blue under the radar because no one is paying attention to it. I vote ND, but it could be TN, or AZ or MT.  

    As greed is now an American value, it's not enough for Obama to win, I want him to humiliate with GOP brains exploding (metaphorically of course).

    No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.

    •  The Revenge Of The 47%'ers!......got a nice ring (0+ / 0-)

    •  Romney not only has Obama to compete with (1+ / 0-)

      He has two other right-of-center candidates: Gary Johnson (Libertarian), & Virgil Greene (Constitution). The only reason they don't get more than single digits of the vote is that the Republican candidate has a far better chance of getting elected, so their potential supporters usually hold their noses & vote R; once it becomes clear that Romney's not going to win, I bet erstwhile Republican voters will surge to them. Maybe even vote straight third-party ballots.

      I expect there will be Red states going Blue because 10%+ of the Republican vote went to Johnson & Greene. Romney -- & his team -- will refuse to believe it could happen, which will only make it more likely to come to pass.

        Because of his stands on social issues in general and on marijuana in particular, Johnson has also been drawing votes away from Obama in some polls.  If it starts to look like Obama has this election in the bag (and count me among those who caution against too much optimism 6 weeks out) Johnson could draw more than expected from Obama in some swing states.

        Just something to consider.
