My final map!

After Obama losing the debate last night, polls should tighten a bit. However, Romney did win by lying all night long. He also did what he has been doing all campaign: he treated issues like darts , throwing them waiting to see which ones will stick and hit the bull's eye.

I imagine this will continue be a long term problem for him.

If Romney ever takes the lead on RCP polling average, for more than a couple days at tops, then Obama is in trouble. However, I don't expect Romney to still, to ever take the lead.

It's Monday.

I would say good news for Romney in as far as things can be good for a candidate that is more than likely heading to a lose.

Romney still can't break that 47/48. I imagine his actual ceiling, in reality, is 49%. But I don't imagine this showing up in polls. In other words, I wouldn't be surprised if Romney gets 49% of the vote, but more than that... I doubt it. I still maintain that he has a ceiling he can't break. And the polls seem to be demonstrating my hypothesis.

However, their have been very few polls since Romney's winning debate performance. This should frustrate both sides. It is hard to get a good picture on exactly what is going on.

The polls that came out today, however, are indicating that Obama is still holding his slim leads in the swing states. Since I took Ohio out of the swing state category, Obama only needs to win one of these swings states to win the election. If he doesn't, it is an electoral tie, and ultimately a Romney win.

If Romney performs flawlessly between here on out, I imagine he could win. This is very unlikely though. I think Nate Silvers analysis continues to give the best and most accurate odds.

Wow. So this is bad. From the perspective of someone who actually cares about people and this country moving forward.

It is pretty clear now that Romney is somewhere about even with Obama. He still has yet to get above that 48% percent (on the polling averages), but it is becoming clear now that he can in fact win. I fully admit to being wrong about this.

North Carolina should at least be a tossup.

Sorry. NC was a mistake on my map. No way Obama is going to win it at this point. it should be leans Romney on my map.
