    And this is your idea of a 'political' debate?

    Man, it's no wonder this country is so fucked. Far too many idiots.

    Actually RCP has Obama +3.4 not +4.0 and the lead in those swing states for Obama is down.

    No it's not my idea of a debate. It is posting polls so people can comment if they like. That's all.

    As of 8/18/12

    You have to click "no toss ups" on the RCP map to get the equivalent snapshot of the state-level leads. That gives Romney the states he's currently ahead in and Obama the states he's ahead in.

    The RCP map predicts an Obama electoral college landslide (332-206) were the election held today.

    But it's not held Today so that all seems rather pointless.

    Such is the nature of any election poll. It merely offers a snapshot of where people are at today.

    Not really..

    Is the 2012 election more like 1980 or 2004? « 2012 Election Central

    Additionally Obama isn't dealing with a failed spook operation, a fake oil crisis and a traitorious opponent scheming with the enemy to hold American hostages until 1/2 hour that opponent is inaugurated.
