That Romney has a legitimate shot in Nevada and/or Colorado? More likely Nevada, but still...I feel like I'm the only one who thinks it.

Only in a 50/50 race.

Since Obama is leading, he will win NV/CO.

Dems held both Senate seats and the governor's mansion in Colorado in 2010. 2012 is a lot less toxic for the Dems.

Nevada has some of the highest unemployment and foreclosure figures in the nation.  This should worry Obama.  Nevada also has the second highest population of Mormons (only behind Utah), this should also worry Obama.

If Romney is able to sucessfully turn the election into a referendum on the Obama economy, then he will perform better in Nevada than nationally.  In a close Obama win, this means that Romney could carry Nevada.

Of the two I believe Romney has a good chance at winning Nevada. Colorado, if it turns out to be a Romney landslide...

Mormons already have notoriously high turnout and already vote very strongly Republican. To get more votes out of this group of people compared to 2008 is like squeezing water from a stone. Also, how is your love life?

Of course he has a legimitate shot.  It's not a good shot, but it wouldn't be unheard of to win them.

But wasn't the 2-man senate race close?  And I think Tancredo had a legitimate shot at winning if he ran as a Republican

I don't know Nevada, but I really doubt Romney can win Colorado in any election where its electoral votes will matter.

Nevada and Colorado are both more Democratic than the nation. That is what most people are saying, but many are also assuming an Obama win thus Nevada and Colorado voting for him. If Romney can win by 2-3 points, he should win both.
