If Democrats actually showed up to the polls they might still be able to avoid armageddon.
That's not going to happen...
I still can't believe Delaware threw away a perfect opportunity to gain the Senate back. I think we'll make up for it in West Virginia, though.

These polls look average, maybe slightly tilted to Democrats in Pennsylvania. I think it's safe to say Johnson has over a 50% chance of winning, with all of the recent polls swinging in his direction.

I like your maps, Scifiguy. The only thing I would probably argue is that Michigan is probably only leaning Romney,  and Massachusetts is probably Safe Democrat. I'd also recommend moving Utah to Assured Romney, given the "Mormon factor".

Pbrower, make sure to add these.

Right -- when this one is available:

California State Survey of 750 Likely Voters
Conducted September 20, 2010
By Rasmussen Reports

1* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

       39% Strongly approve
       18% Somewhat approve
         7% Somewhat disapprove
       35% Strongly disapprove
         1% Not sure

...something is wrong with a "news" organization which tries to shape political life by putting out polls that it likes.

FoX News/Opinion Dynamics had objective polling in 2008 -- but NOT NOW!

If I see anything it is the statewide polarization characteristic of 2008.
Balance the two, you have always done that before, especially in North Carolina. You still need to add the other polls too. There is no reason for you to reject these when you take CNN ones.

I agree with what you say. Pbrower, balance out the polls if you only accept CNN over Fox News or alot of people will stop taking your polls seriously.

FoX News is an oxymoron.
Pbrower, you will lose any credibility you still have if you don't include the FOX polls. Because let's face it, if those polls were very pro-Obama, you would have immediately added them. You just don't want to because they aren't good for your messiah.

I'm going to suggest that we go slow on the endorsements until October. It's really unrealistic that there are this many endorsements (myself to blame as well) in January.

This is off-subject, but it's something that we probably should address fairly quickly. It looks like the Senate will be passing a law abolishing a federal drinking age, so we'll need to set one here. My personal recommendation is 18, but I'd be willing to listen to other arguments.

Isn't the federal drinking age currently 18?

In that case, I say we keep it at 18, no more and no less.
It's going to be abolished though, it appears. The vote is passing.

Mitt Romney addresses a hyper crowd in Orlando, Florida, where he is accompanied by former President George H.W. Bush and Charlie Crist...

Friends, we have done it! Months of hard work has paid off, and we scored a huge win tonight! First, before I forget, I'd like to congratulate both Tancredo and Huckabee on their showings. Both are great men, and would make fine Presidents.

Now, I'm not one to get to presumptuous, but I think we're in pretty good shape! (crowd roars) With a huge delegate lead, I believe nothing will stop us from taking this campaign all the way to the White House! Tonight, Floridians chose a path of conservative leadership. I thank you all, and I look forward to visiting this state more in the fall. Thank you, and God Bless!!!

Mitt Romney speaks about Florida on FOX news...

I think I have a serious shot at winning Florida. We've ran an exciting campaign there, had some great endorsers, including their current Governor, and have focused on the issues that are important to Floridans, mainly social security. I think Rep. Tancredo could also put this race into a three-way with his heavy campaigning lately. It should be a fun race, and I'm excited to see who wins.

George H W Bush reacts to his son's decision in Coral Gables, Florida at a rally...

Well, my son has made his choice, and I respect him for that. We'll have a good talk later on about this. (crowd laughs) Seriously, Mike Huckabee is a fine man, and wouldn't make a bad President. Right now though, I'm deeply concerned about the state of our economy, and I'm not sure if we should have someone in there who has said some questionable things regarding the private sector. I want someone who has that private sector experience, and I know you do too! I ask you all to vote for Mitt Romney for a brighter future for Florida and America!!!

Mitt Romney makes his final stops in Florida, with a heavy emphasis on social security and taxes. He is also endorsed by Congressmen    along the way, as well as Congressmen Tom Rooney, Bill Posey, Jeff Miller, and Ander Crenshaw, all who appear with Romney at different events. Businessman Rick Scott also gives his endorsement to Romney.

Right now, we need a strong leader for this party. And while we have good candidates, I think Mitt is the best. I'm proud to endorse him for President!

Romney makes a comment on FOX News...

Friends, Huckabee continues to surprise me with his increasingly liberal rhetoric. The Republican party has always encouraged the private sector, and supported a smaller government. Now, Governor Huckabee continues to dismiss my work in the private sector as beneficial for leading this country, which is sad, to say the least. He prides himself on being part of the establishment, another liberal characteristic. We can chalk this up with immigration, crime, and taxes as issues Huckabee is liberal on.

Mitt Romney also releases an ad blitz that focuses mainly on Florida, Georgia, and Tennessee...

Romney: Hello, I'm Mitt Romney, and I'm seeking the Republican nomination for President of the United States. I've spent years in the private sector; I know why jobs come, and I know why they go. I'm proud of this experience, and this experience will be beneficial if I am honored to serve as your President. I ask for your vote on primary day. Together, we can put the South, and America, back on track economically.
I'm Mitt Romney, and I approve this message.

I expect her actual numbers will be much lower than this poll indicates. This may be the highest we see her. Miller will win simply because people will see the (R) by Miller's name.
This. If Murkowski had barely won the primary and Miller ran a write-in campaign, she'd also win by a comfortable margin due to that (R).

Governor Romney responds to Huckabee at a rally in Orlando, Florida, speaking in front of a crowd predominantly filled with senior citizens. She is also endorsed by Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite.

I find it extremely interesting that Governor Huckabee is dismissing my work in the private sector and suggesting that government work is more important. My friends, right now, we need someone who hasn't been working for the government for a while. We need someone who has experience in the private sectors, and knows what the government must do to attract businesses to and from America. I have that experience, and quite frankly, my main opponent does not. I offer strong, conservative positions on the economy, and will implement those, as well as drastic social security reform, if I am elected President. Thank you, and God Bless!
