    Counting Romney out of Ohio, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire and Wisconsin (or any combination of the above) would be foolish.

    Do the math. If Romney wins a combination of any of the swing states (which is certainly possible) things may not turn out the way many think. It should also be noted that some states that seem like Obama shoe-ins (based on those polls of course) may not necessarily be. Don't be surprised if the Electoral Map this year becomes all disjointed when all is said and done.

    Interesting analysis by Politico. I wonder which polls they're using. From what I have been reading in terms of polls and early voting, Obama has a better chance of winning Virginia than Colorado.

    See? This is 13 points off from the Princeton prediction.
    Thus "proving" that we can't know nothing yet.

    Anyhow, doesn't seem like there are any undecided voters around here.
    So I'm not quite sure who anyone is trying to impress.
    Wouldn't it be more productive to trash talk about this weekend's football games?
    We can all Monday morning QB those the day before the election and then meet again on Wed to wrap up the election results.
