    The race to the White House is won or lost on the electoral college map. Real Clear Politics has the first breakdown of where President Barack Obama stands against the GOP in electoral college math. The RCP map puts the president just slightly ahead with 197 likely electoral college votes, compared to 191 likely Republican votes.

    With 150 Electoral College votes up for grabs, Obama is in for a tough battle to capture the 270 electoral votes needed to win the general election. To have any chance of winning, his campaign needs to secure the 34 votes currently leaning toward Obama, as well as capture a good chunk of the tossup states.

    I thought Palin would run and win 54 or 55 of the states Barry claims to have visited in 2008.

    It will all depend on who comes out of the GOP primary and how much political baggage the extreme right pins on him

    If the Tea Party gets pissed at who wins the GOP and runs their own candidate, Obama will romp

    Obama's baggage will be very transparent by 2012. Could be very hard to overcome

    If the economy is crap, then Obama will pay the price. Any movement upward will make him a tough incumbent to beat

    I think I heard somewhere that no president has been re elected with unemployment higher than 7.2% in the last 60 years

    Boguswanker,

    Just googled: larry sinclair obama

    If that video is true, Obami Salaami is a fucking QUEER

    Larry Sinclair claims he fellatio-ed (neologism ?) Obummer in his limo, then in a hotel in 1999 when Obummer was a Senator.

    Larry Sinclair vehemently challenges Obummer to take a polygraph, or any other test to verify the TRUTH of the issue.

    If this is the MONUMENTAL Scam one may think it is purported to be, one would think that this "scam" would be squelched with an exonerating investigation.

    Either way, a full scale investigation must be made about these allegations.

    Question: if it turns out that Obami Salaami is a fucking QUEER......I wonder if that Electoral Map would be obsolete ?????

    Note: The Electoral College protects the rights of the smaller states.

    Fortunately, the Republicans have the the majority of the smaller states if the McCain/Obummer election is any indication.

    Looks like Ohio, NC, FLA will be the keys. I don't see Obama winning any of the 3 this time around.
