There's a rumor going around the internets peed out by Fox News Corp alum Major Garrett in National Journal that according to Plouffe, Obama is "circling wagons" around four states -- Ohio, Nevada, Iowa and New Hampshire -- and giving up on Virginia, North Carolina and Florida.
The deal: NOT TRUE...
According to Jen Psaki of the Obama Campaign in The Hill:
Look folks. It's tight.
It will be in every state we've all pored over and turned over in our minds instead of sleeping...scheduling trips for Obama and Biden nightly, "...and if Jill Biden hits the Denver suburbs...."
And yes, if either campaign pulls out of any state or makes a sudden play for a new one...that's a tell.
Btw...to hell with national tracking polls...where the candidates GO and spend time tells us more. And the state poll averages of course. But we all know that now.
Obama shows up in PA or Michigan -- trouble.
Romney shows up in North Carolina and Colorado...trouble for him, etc...
And Gallup sucks.
