Razor thin margins everywhere.
Back in August I had this to say:
I’m out on a limb with Virginia and Colorado while Obama is pretty much a lock in every state going blue in the map above.
I no longer think I’m on a limb in Virginia, possibly Colorado. But Romney seems to have stolen New Hampshire. And I think Iowa breaks Red.
Again, there is plenty of “limbness” going on here, but…and this is a significant but, if Romney moves even one single state such as Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio or Pennsylvania, it’s over. Going back to August again I said this:
I think Obama will carry the big Ohio and Pennsylvania states with Florida going for Mitt.
I’m now more sure of Florida and less sure of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Net/net – I am really demoralized that the Union states of Michigan and Ohio are supporting Obama as strong as they are. The President made a clear power play there with the auto bailouts and then the ensuing bankruptcy that he totally manipulated. Add in Wisconsin to that Union dominated list of states and you have an election dictated by Unions.
