    I still prefer 'Undecided', whoever she/he may be.

    They haven't changed that electoral map for at least a month. There are more realistic maps out there but you'd rather cherry pick so you get the results you're hoping for.

    Go figure.

    RCP is engaging in so much fudging of polls to create the illusion of a contest it isn't even funny.

    They are sitting on polls right now because that +7 advantage in Gallup has gone down to +4, and they don't want to post it.

    And when you click on their "no toss ups" map? What happens then?

    Really? Gallup has Romney at only +4?

    This calls you a fucking liar.

    Undecideds break fast and furious to the challenger when a POTUS is under 50% approval.


    This really won't be that close.

    .

    I'd like to know how Obama would govern if he won the electoral college vote and lost the popular vote.

    I suspect the Dems would still call it a "mandate".

    I would like to see that happen. I'd like to see Romney win the popular vote and lose the electoral college vote. Maybe then we would see some movement towards getting rid of the EC.

    I'm thinking the chances of this happening are increasing by the day.
