    I'm in a slightly awkward position because my partner gets more anxious about the election than me, since I follow it a bit more closely.  All throughout the season I would calm him down by putting things into perspective, namely, that this map is a nightmare for Republicans.  The idea of having to defend Virginia and North Carolina would have been unthinkable not even 8 years ago.  I pointed out how Republicans weren't even contesting New Mexico, Michigan, Oregon, Minnesota, and Pennsylvania.  So I told him over a month ago, "as long as we don't see anyone campaigning in MI, MN, and PA, we'll know we're way up."  I understand that it's a desperation play but would rather never have to be in the position of having to explain it.
