  •  VA was never strong Obama (5+ / 0-)

    I've been pleased but sort of surprised by the recent VA polling.  I live in NoVA - most liberal part of the state and worked campaign both times.  Huge difference from 08 (and not in a good way) - and he barely won the state then.  Hope we can rebound but I've been having a hard time anyway with the polls.  Think OH, PA, FL, etc. are better bets.  Not that I'm giving up, but there are a lot of conservatives in this state, even in NoVA.  I personally know so many middle class people who work for the federal government (and are even pro-choice) and will never vote Dem. Like it's in their blood - drives me crazy!  I mean GOP has been crapping on the civil servicefor years, and people here still vote for them.  Don't get it!!

    •  I was never quite sure about VA, NC and I am on (2+ / 0-)

      the fence about FL and CO but I feel very good about Nevada and Ohio and NH.

      Those are the three states plus Wisconsin that I am watching.  

      Something for the worrier hang wringers to do to feel more optimistic, do some electoral math. You would be shocked how many states the President can afford to lose and still win..

      I think the worst that will happen is the President wins a rather close election electorally but easily wins popular vote.  I predict the President wins by at least 281

    •  I was just on a short visit to VA, (0+ / 0-)

      the Williamsburg  and Hampton Roads area.
      I saw many Romney and Allen signs and only one or two Obama signs.
