What I would change:

NM, MN, WI, MI -> Safe Obama

PA -> Tossup

GA, SC -> Lean Romney (but we need more polls from there, preferably from Mason-Dixon, PPP and SurveyUSA)

So:



If I had to predict the tossups, it'd look like this:

This is more realistic:



Though obviously its a stretch to call Pennsylvania a tossup, and Obama's consistently ahead in VA, OH, and NH as well.

Junk junk junk! Only map worth looking at would be one based on polling, including only pollsters with good records, starting in 2 months or so...

The next 4 months are pretty much useless when it comes to polling. I expect it to be similar to the Kerry vs. Bush summer. Polling will become interesting when Mason-Dixon starts polling a lot of states in August/September. Which is also the time when PPP switches to a likely voter model.

I think Michigan and Pennsylvania could be in play.

New Mexico is a lost cause though.

If the GOP spend any significant amount of cash in PA this year they deserve to lose. We're not going to win. Take those funds and use in more vulnerable territory. If Bush hadn't spend so much cash in PA in 2004, he could have carried NH & WI.

Except PA has been swingier than Ohio this year. It sometimes seems like a better bet than Virginia, which is a state Romney will surely pour money into. So why not try for Pennsylvania too? If he wins it, the benefits would be astronomical.

If he wins it, it will be by a razor thin margin, and he could still lose the presidency in that scenario. The state is expensive, and a long shot. I would just rather the $$$ be spent elsewhere.

Yeah, definitely. Romney should probably give up on Nevada already.

CO, OH, NM, PA, and IA are all Safe Obama.

NC, VA, GA, SC, FL, NH are all tossup.

I'd add NV and NH as lean Obama and if another poll confirms it I'd put CO as lean too.

Bernie would probably win Vermont if Obama were deemed to have more than 272 evs in the vag.

I think if Obama was able to beat Hillary in MO, he'd have a decent shot of beating Romney, but only if he wins by the same or a larger margin.

Something tells me that Obama's 2008 primary win wasn't on the back of swing voters.

Yes, thank you for having the decency to admit that Obama won the primary because of reverse racism.

Darth Nader, that looks about right, but everyone is actually understating Obama's strength.

Obama-D wins all of the Dukakis states he carried last time including (IA-6,MN-10,and WI-10)=96ev
Obama-D wins all of the Gore/ Kerry states he carried by a double digit margin including (PA-20,NM-5,and MI-16)=253ev
Winning CO-9,NV-6,and NH-4 gives Obama-D 272ev.
Obama-D has a greater than 50-50 chance of winning VA-13,OH-18,and FL-29.
If Obama-D is having a great night on Election Day. He narrowly wins or loses NC-15 and MO-10.
2012 is going to be like 2000. The states Gore narrowly won in 2000 was IA-6,MN-10,NM-5,OR-7,and WI-10. Gore narrowly lost NH-4 which could have given him the 270plus ev.
The states Obama-D will win in 2012 by a very narrow margin is CO-9,IA-6,and NV-6. He wins MI-16,MN-10,NM-5,OR-7,PA-20,and WI-10 by a high single digit margin. (268ev) Obama-D will fight to win NH-4,OH-18,FL-29,and VA-13. Obama-D loses MO-10 and NC-15 by a narrow margin. Obama-D loses AZ-11,GA-16,and IN-11 by a high single digit margin.

'Reverse racism' isn't a thing.

The 'urban vote', however, clearly is.
