House of Ras and ARG up with Florida and NH numbers and not looking good-i am hoping that VP debate will atleast make the slide in Florida halt to some extent. Joe has been really impressive with the seniors there (heck seemed like he was even charming Ryan's mom last night)

Here are the numbers

Florida (Rasmussen Reports) Romney 51 - Obama 47 (even with a 2 point House effect it seems Romney is ahead by 2 points there)
Florida (ARG) Romney 49 - Obama 46 (not sure on the house effect here but will still make a slight Romney edge)

NH (ARG) Romney 50 - Obama 46, NH will always be a tough state to poll and unless you see Obama's margins in other NH polls to 6+ i will consider it a very close state post first Debate

Updated with VA RAS numbers that just came out confirming that VA is probably dead even now, Romeny 49 - Obama 47

In my opinion we are a little behind in Florida while NH should still have a small Obama lead. More worrying is Colorado. Of course winning Florida will seal the deal on Election day along with Ohio but losing Florida, VA and Colorado will make it really tough.
Colorado i am very hopeful we will start to see reversing back to Team Obama in the next few days while VA will be dead even for now

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
