Tried to come up with something different than the others, but still realistic:

In the North, white voters flee Obama in some recent Democratic strongholds, while the Hispanic vote helps him hold on out West.

This is the least realistic one so far.

Obama wins Florida but not Michigan or Wisconsin, states that haven't voted GOP in decades?

If Obama wins Florida, he's on his way to 400 EC votes.

I think it's pretty clear that Romney has to win Florida if he wants to be the president. Unless he can make sweeping inroads in the rust belt, which I think is unlikely.

A surprising number of plausible ways to reach a Tie!
Since at Tie goes to the House to be resolved, another set of equivalent maps is any map with a 270-268 win, but in which one faithless elector throws it to the House.  I'm sure there are many such maps as well.

2016 PVI map of the Electoral College, with each state's size proportional to its vote in the EC. Grey states are even (PVI 0 or 1), pale states are lean-likely (PVI 2 through 5), dark states are solid (PVI 6 or more).

It's the only one I see as being a plausible 269 tie... but I doubt Obama is going to lose IA.

Yes, NM and OH seem to be the most Obama-leaning of the CO-NM-NV-IA states (the Hispanics and Iowa, as I call them) and the OH-FL-NC-VA states (I like to call them the Big Four).

But Obama isn't going to lose CO, NV, or IA unless Romney reeeeeeeeeeeeeeally makes an effort.

I can't decide if Virginia or Ohio is more likely to go Romney. Most the maps here hinge on one or the other going Romney... I think it's probably more likely that Ohio goes for Obama in this election, but as the DC suburbs expand I think Virginia is going to trend more and more democratic.

Virginia has clearly become a steadily blue swing state, like Pennsylvania, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
Ohio is actually red state that at times votes blue by accident.
