At FiveThirtyEight/NY Times, Nate's model now has Romney winning IN, NC, FL, VA, and CO and trailing Obama by only 29 Electoral Votes:   254 vs 283 and trailing by less than 1% in the popular vote 49.1% vs 49.8%.
Obama is ahead because he still is the predicted winner in OH.  So no surprise Romney is all over Ohio this week.
Shades of 2004, the election may hinge on OH

If we go strictly by 538, OH is superfluous for Romney -- Obama's three most tenuous states are Iowa, Nevada, and Ohio, in that order, and Romney only needs Iowa and Nevada to win. (Actually, send it to the House, but he'll win there).

If the race is tied or slight Romney lead then it makes sense for Romney to be ahead in FL, VA, CO. It just took a few days since the debate for enough state polls to feed into nate's model. Romney may be ahead in IA too but there has only been one poll since debate.

Peoples... find a grip... then get one... this is NOT surprising. Silver projected this would happen earlier in the week if the trackers didn't close up.

this is getting crazy it all started because obama 1st debate. We still have 2 more debates

1. Nobody cares about the other two debates. Only the first debate has the biggest effect

2. What makes you think Obama is suddenly going to do better this time around?

We don't even know how much of an impact the VP debate had. Take a chill pill. There's still much more of this election to come...

I remember reading a quote though I can't remember who it was that said "when conservatives get bad news on polls they want to kill you, when liberals get bad news on polls they want to kill themselves." Chill out everyone. There is a good reason why my prediction has been unchanged since July.

Also, don't forget that Silver's been putting most if not all of the polls into his tracking method, including the comically useless We Ask America and a few of the more terrible Rasmussen ones. That might be skewing things a bit.
