He carried 237 last time under the new lines.  Any districts that Obama lost last time that he might carry and vise versa?

If there was a sortable spreadsheet, it'd be easy to make guesses with uniform swing. (This Daily Kos one doesn't seem to be sortable).

As it stands, with 538 projecting a PV victory of about 3.5 points, I'm guessing that would leave Obama with perhaps a bare majority of CDs. Obama winning with a minority is very plausible.

As for McCain/Obama districts, the least McCain AZ districts seem to be the best shots (AZ-02 at 50-49 being the most plausible, followed by AZ-01 at 51-47).

Obama/Romney districts will mostly be the narrowly Obama districts from 2008. CT-04 (Fairfield County, home to lots of finance types) is probably the strongest Obama district (at 60%) that Romney has a reasonable chance at carrying.

Are we talking 2008 district lines or 2012 district lines?

BK without all the crazy drugs just wouldn't be BK.
I, for one, fully support the increasing gifification of the Atlas.
