Romney may win popular and lose electoral. Usually that scenario is the other way around, since Dems tend to hold urban areas and Reps rural areas. But this time around its different. The Republican candidate has overwhelming support in the states that fought for the right to own human being as property. Yet the Democratic candidate maintains small leads in numerous battleground states. So the Democrat may make enough electoral votes through tiny margins in enough states - while the Republican gains oodles of popular votes in states that used to sanction the ownership of persons as a piece of property.
