So, Obama could get raped in the Midwest and Suburban South but still come out on top out west?
Obama/Biden 49.8% 274 EVs
Romney/Rubio 48.9% 264 EVs
Seems like Obama could win like Wilson did in 1916. Basically becoming president out of an extreme set of circumstances when progressive ideas and the Democratic Party are and have been unpopular for decades, and as world affairs get iffy, manages to hang on by doing well out west despite winning by less than he originally did. Of course he'll lose the senate in this situation and the GOP's congresional delegation will finally be not quite recovered from the Great Depression by 2014 and the GOP taking full and total control of the reigns for the rest of the decade....but by 2021....it will be totally worth it...if you survive "it". Think of Liberalism's second coming a lot like its first. We were just about 15 years too impatient. lol. This isn't the real "crisis" that will cause the paradigm shift. Its basically the American people comparing Obama to the fat girl that gets you drunk and has sex with you but despite it technically being rape, you are a much better sport about it than you should have been and take the sloppy "W". Think I'm gonna call the next time this happens the ol' 1916aroo.
