    Pob retrains his linear model fairly often, to incorporate recent voting.  So there is some interaction between the states, though only through demographic features.

    Moreover, what the campaigns did between then and now was to motivate their base.  What they did not do was completely change the identity politics map in two months, which nobody would have expected anyway.

    The game is to build a coalition and maximize it.  What we saw is that Wright and Gas taxes had basically no effect on Obama's ability to do this, bloggers freaking out aside.
