Where Does the Election Stand Today?

by the only and only Jim Cooke (via Tumblr)

THE ILLUSTRATION above goes with what Charlie Cook said today to Andrea Mitchell. Cook said Mitt Romney has to win over 80% (sorry, didn’t catch the exact number) of the battleground state electoral votes to win, while Obama only needs around 18%.

Are you hearing me now, Dick toe-sucker Morris?

And since the a new poll shows Obama up 6 in New Hampshire, from a teeny-tiny lead of 2 reported earlier in the week by NBC/WSJ/Marist poll, Romney’s off to Pennsylvania for a hail Mary, because he’s got to have one if New Hampshire is lost.

A new survey from New England College has President Obama leading Mitt Romney by 6 percentage points in New Hampshire, 49.5 percent to 44.4 percent.

He’ll be greeted in PA by William Jefferson Clinton, the hardest workin’ man in politics until Tuesday, as long as his voice holds out.

    The momentum is with Romney. Rassmussen today shows this. It is up for grabs. I made my state by state prediction already.

      It IS fun reading your juvenile and rather pathetic attempts to buck yourself up for what’s coming…either that or it is extremely sad seeing such divorced from reality delusional thinking…exactly the sort of person Obamacare will help get thew psychiatric help necessary to come back into the family of sane folks.

    It’s all over but the screaming.

    I have believed for a while, (and have said so in a few posts on the site) despite the tight polls, that Pres Obama will win both electoral and popular vote. The polling coming out now showing The Pres pulling away should have happened a few weeks ago. His first debate performance let Romney come off the ropes , but The Pres performance during Sandy is putting Romney back on the ropes for the eventual knockout. From my perspective Romney is headed for the canvas as we speak. I have never believed the meme that it was tight nor the split decision of the electoral college v popular vote. That was right wing propaganda pushed by the MSM.

    The monkey wrench is ironically, Sandy’s aftermath. The Northeast is solidly Democrat and accounts for a huge share of the Pres electoral and popular vote. So voting on Tuesday is important for many reasons, The Dem vote has to turnout, but so does the Repub vote. Sandy did not discriminate by political party-everyone got hammered.Outside of New Hampshire, all the Northeastern states usually go big for the Democratic Party candidate. So there is some cushion in the region for the President.

    So the news that Pres Obama is pulling away in just about all the battleground states he was leading, and getting even and inching away in which it was tight, or he was behind, is suggestive of the Pres closing the deal.

    So I’ll go on the record that Pres Obama wins re-elect with over 300EV and wins the popular vote.

    Basically we’re back to the same story. What was an old story now has become the “new story”. I don’t see Romney having a chance in PA but it seems Obama is worried about WI though he might not need WI to win.

      I’d be shocked if Romney won PA too. Especially with the Big Dawg working the state.
