    Romney needs all but one of Swing States to win presidency

    That’s the bad news. But the good news is he is winning in three, tied in two and losing in one. What a horse race! But it's as though we are at the starting line. A lot can happen until November.

    Colorado (9 Electoral Votes) ………..Romney 47% Obama 47% ………….tie
    Iowa (6 Electoral Votes)………….Romney 46% Obama 44% …………… Romney
    Wisconsin (10 Electoral Votes)……….Romney 48% Obama 47% …………Romney
    Ohio (18 Electoral Votes)…………Romney 45% Obama 45% …………….tie
    Virginia (13 Electoral Votes) ………….Romney 46% Obama 48% …………..Obama
    Florida (29 Electoral Votes)…………Romney 45% Obama 43% Romney

    2012 Electoral College Scoreboard - Rasmussen Reports™

    Another bit of trivia. At this point in the election cycle, we have 24 red states, 20 blue. Obama won in 2008 with 28 blue states.

    Don't forget he may very well take a state or two that Obama is taking for granted.

    Can't understand why Pa. is not in the swing state column with Obama's war on coal.

    Obama's horse is named 'Teleprompter' and the jockey's name is 'Biden'.

    It goes to show how stupid some people are. Must be a state of Obama Kool-aid drinkers.

    Not sure what the confidence level is on these but given the closeness I would guess they are all a statistical tie.

    To early. The right should NOT be focusing on polls right now, but on the failures of Obama. That list alone is one of the most target rich environments you'll ever need.
