    to go to 270towin and mess with the electoral map.

    Trust me, you will be amazed.  Mitt would sure have to make up a lot of ground and get a huge bounce of this debate or demolish the President from here on out to win electorally.

    The President may not win in a landslide and I think that is truly what upsets some people.  They were hoping for the President to demolish Mittens. But I knew that would be hard because Mittens lies and changes his positions daily and continues to deny all he has ever said in his life prior to the debate.  He is the biggest flip flopper I have ever seen run for any office in my lifetime and i am mid 50s.

    So what if the President does not win all the states he won last time as long as he wins. So what if he gets 288 or 273 electoral votes and not 3oo plus.  

    A win is a win and remember Bush barely won and declared the voters gave him a mandate.

    I guess I have been around politics for 40 years and I never, ever expect landslides as this country is deeply divided.  I do not think in my lifetime I will ever see a landslide for President again. I think the country is truly split down the middle with very few undecideds.  

    Granted, we may have a nailbiter and be out of our minds with worry election night for a while as it may be very close but not as close as some fear.  I do not think it will come down to one states like 2000 or 2004. I do not think it will come down to a tie either.

    I think though it will be closer than most like where it comes down to 2 or 3 states for the whole ballgame.
