  •  Was watching CNN... (0+ / 0-)

    during lunch and they had a poll in Nevada showing Obama ahead but "within the margin of error."  Therefore, Nevada is now "too close to call."

    They're clearly looking at the same map and the same numbers we are, and it's getting hysterical watching them tie themselves in knots trying to keep this race "neck-and-neck!"

    Media wants horserace, media gets horserace.  Even when the math disagrees...

    •  When a slew of polls shows Obama (0+ / 0-)

      consistently +3-4 in Nevada, it's safe to assume that the polling is correct, regardless of what the MOEs are in individual polls. Even Sandoval says Romney isn't going to win Nevada. Plus you have to take into account that whatever the polling says Obama has you have to add 2-3% to account for Latinos that aren't polled. Nevada is not a swing state any more than Pennsylvania is.
