Calm down, Democrats. This is about winning the electoral college, not national polls. | New York Daily News We felt secure when Obama seemed to be up by 9 pointsin Ohio. But the race will go back and forth until November election day. Romney will not pull ahead. He will not even be polled with 270 electoral votes before then. Tied nationally means nothing with you are sitting on 250+ electoral votes this close to election day, as Obama is. Romney only made the race closer....he did not win it. Sooner or later he will have to answer to some of his "new postions" from the lat debate.
