Perhaps...but what was won?
In other news, for those who won't be in shock when someone who "wins" the popular vote, but looses the actual race occurs, my curmudgeon-y father forwarded this site to me. They link to the actual polls. An avg of the last 14 days of ALL the polls is not appropriate, but, it is much better than the CNN map which I found to be clumsy getting to the data. With this link, you can "create your own map" and change the states which ever color you please if you don't believe there assessment. Pretty slick if you ask me.
Take it for what it is worth, just thought it was a neat tool.
Yes, I've been watching RCP for several months now. They tend to have a GOP bias if any but are generally a good resource. Another place with a nifty map is 270towin.com
Romney seems to be gathering steam lately, I'll grant you that. But the trouble is that he would have to win most of the big battleground states, Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania to get enough electoral votes. That could happen but seems unlikely. Most of the solid blue states are very solid (pushing 60/40) while many of the solid red states are not that solid, maybe 52/48. It doesn't take much of a stumble over the next couple of weeks to lose that kind of lead and a challenger in any race is far more likely to stumble.
We'll see. Personally I'm not too concerned either way. Four years from now we're still going to be complaining about incompetence in Washington and we're still going to have a huge deficit, debt, and no one will like paying taxes. At least if all goes according to plan I'll be retired on a beach by then.
