    Colorado President Obama 0.6 5 polls, 3 Obama, 2 Romney

    Florida Governor Romney 1.4 10 polls, 6 Romney, 3 Obama, one tie

    Iowa President Obama 3.0 6 polls, 5 Obama one Romney

    New Hampshire President Obama 1.5 6 polls, 4 Obama, one Romeny, one tie

    North Carolina Governor Romney 3.8 5 polls 3 Romney, 2 tie

    Wisconsin President Obama 4.2 5 polls 4 Obama one tie

    Virginia Governor Romney 0.3 8 polls 3 Romney, 3 Obama, 2 ties

    Very best scenerio for Romney, Va, NC, Fl, Co. That is 257 for Romney. Colorado is presently in Obama' column, but shaky at 0.6. Equally shaky for Romney is 0.3 for Virgina.

    What makes you imagine that he won't take NH?

    What makes you imagine that he won't take WI?

    What makes you imagine that he won't take Iowa?

    What makes you think he will? But only two more days, and we will know who is best in touch with reality.

    Romney will take New Hampshire to many gun owners in that state to allow obama a chance at an assault weapons ban.
    As for Wisconsin that remains to be seen
    I think Romney will take the coal states because of obama's war on coal.

    I think the polls are fucking skewed. I think any effort at unskewing them shows that the slight Obama leads are (actually) probably ties at worst for Mitt. And those that show ties are already in Mitt's column.

    But the point again is NOT tht he will or won't. The point is that it is dumb to discount states where he is as likely to win or maybe even actually already slightly in the lead. And the turnout is NOT likely to favor The ONE.

    And of course, I already know you are out of touch with reality.

    What we will learn in a couple of more days is who wins. That is not a matter of guessing or prediction.

    Rational people see the words "unskewed polls" and bust a gut laughing.

    Why? Because bitter cranks who manufacture their own reality are funny.

    Mitt Romney And The NRA: A 'Diss' Before Courtship | Independent Firearm Owners Association


    WASHINGTON -- Two hours before then-Gov. Mitt Romney was to sign a bill outlawing assault weapons and small handguns in Massachusetts, John Rosenthal, a leading gun control advocate, received an unexpected phone call.

    Rosenthal had worked with statehouse leaders on the legislation, which would replace the expiring federal assault weapons ban. Through all that time, he had never had a conversation with the governor. He wasn't even sure if Romney would sign the bill into law. Now, without warning, Rosenthal had the governor's spokesman Eric Ferhnstrom on the phone asking if he'd attend the signing ceremony.

    Rosenthal scrambled. He arrived at the statehouse 30 minutes before the ceremony, met with Ferhnstrom -- who remains Romney's top communications hand -- and was notified that he would be standing behind the governor on the podium and allowed to speak. What happened next remains a subject of contention for those in attendance.

    Minutes before the bill signing, Romney's staff tore down a sign listing the name of Jim Wallace, an official with the National Rifle Association-affiliated Gun Owners' Action League and the top gun rights advocate in the state. In its place, they installed a Rosenthal placard.

    "The National Rifle Association and Jim Wallace were completely dissed," Rosenthal told The Huffington Post." Romney "shook my hand, thanked me for being there and for my leadership, and he listened to my remarks in which, frankly, I applauded him for signing the bill."

    The moment would mark a high point in the relationship between Romney and gun control advocates. Within a year, Romney would designate May 7 "Rights To Bear Arms" day in Massachusetts. A year after that, he became a lifetime member of the NRA. Around that time, he began plotting a presidential campaign that required him to bolster his support among Second Amendment enthusiasts. From there, the schism grew wider.

    On Friday, Romney will appear as the de-facto Republican presidential nominee before the NRA annual convention in St. Louis, delivering what's expected to be a full-throated endorsement for the organization's objectives. He will get a strong reception. The NRA has no alternative candidate to back.

    Were Romney to win, what would his position be 21Jan13? Anyone know? Does Romney know?
