Even knocking a couple points off for librulll bias, Obama still favored in most battleground states.

I'd love it if that were the case, mind, it'd be really refreshing, but with the way the party's acting now I'm not holding my breath for that to be a reality anytime soon.
I don't know...Chris Christie might have a lot of pull in 2016, if Romney loses. Some were practically begging him to run this year. He's certainly not the tea party.

As for this election, I think there may be too many states Romney has to pull away. I think he'll get some, like Florida, Colorado, NC, possibly NH. But both Ohio and Virginia? We shall see.

Water under the bridge now, I changed my plan by voting early instead of late and voted for Obama instead of third party.

Look what Fox News is trying to stir up:

A Pennsylvania judge is issuing an order to reinstate Republican election officials across Philadelphia who allegedly were ejected or refused entry by on-site Democratic voting chief judges, GOP officials tell Fox News.

One Republican official claimed that "just under 70" Republican election officials were blocked from Philadelphia polling sites Tuesday morning by Democrats on site. One of them, the official claimed, "was shoved out of the polling place."

"For this many inspectors to be ejected from polling places is rare, even for Philadelphia," the official told FoxNews.com.

Further, one polling site in Philadelphia apparently had a mural of President Obama emblazoned on the wall directly behind the voting machines. The mural, at a local school being used as a polling site, contained the words "change!" and "hope," along with a quote from the president.

Republicans were drawing attention to the image Tuesday morning, with one Mitt Romney spokesman tweeting: "Voters in Philly's Ward 35 are being forced to cast their ballots next to this."

Pennsylvania election law states "no person within a polling place may electioneer or solicit votes for any political party, political body, or candidate, nor may any unauthorized written or printed materials be posted within the polling place."

Elsewhere in the city, a representative from the New Black Panther Party was also spotted outside a polling site. The New Black Panthers stirred controversy in 2008 when members appeared outside a polling site, one of them holding a billy club. The representative seen Tuesday morning was not armed.

The flap over the election judges, though, was widespread. Republicans claim they are obtaining a series of court orders to seat the so-called election "inspectors," and sheriff's deputies will be available to escort them.

Despite the high number of officials who were allegedly booted, the dispute itself is not uncommon for Philadelphia. Fred Voigt, legal counsel for the city commissioners, said these kinds of face-offs happen "with regularity" in the City of Brotherly Love.

"It happens all the time," Voigt said. He said court-appointed Republican officials typically show up on Election Day and end up squaring off against stand-in officials at the polling sites filling in the open seats. Part of the problem, he said, is that the Republican inspectors are appointed on relatively short notice, leading to a string of confrontations on Election Day.

"There are no cool heads here," Voigt said.

The on-site election officials are responsible for verifying the identity of voters, and monitoring for signs of fraud or disenfranchisement.

I mean... is it really stirring up when there's photographic evidence to back up the claims?

Does anybody actually believe that shady election day tactics are only a Republican phenomenon?

That FOX News story was taken down. Maybe something wasn't accurate or fake or...?

I think its possible that Democrats can be just as shady. Remember videos from 2008 showing Black Panthers intimidating white voters in - I think - Philadelphia?

No, but it's not very fair and balanced to try to stir up claims that it's only the Democrats who are being shady.

If Romney loses by any kind of close margin, that's just the start of it for Fox News. They'll be 24/7 with those kinds of stories.

Of course if Obama loses by a close margin the same kinds of accusations will happen, and MSNBC will be on that 24/7.

i think Romney flips NC and IN. FL is the toss up.

the rest of the map remains the same.

just my guess.

I still think it counts in spite of all that. Not to sound all Bill Clinton but it depends on what your definition of counts is. Just for me the fact that I can do it and speak my mind means it counts on a level that's important to me. It counted in MA when people voted in Scott Brown. Obviously that's different because it's not electoral college. I just can't take that attitude, that it doesn't count because of electoral college. Even if it is archaic.
