    I was just thinking about how difficult a time Obama will likely have winning Nevada for all the damage he's done there. What other states will Obama have difficulty keeping?

    North Carolina and Virginia come to mind. Florida isn't a shoo-in for either party. Wisconsin and Minnesota may be in play. New Mexico?

    Damn Obama for causing the housing bust in Nevada. Oh that's right, he had nothing to do with that.

    Assuming the Republicans run the Weird Mormon Robot, I think that Obama may lose Nevada, Colorado and New Mexico.

    But he'll pick up Missouri, Georgia, and Arkansas.

    Where I see the big risk- Texas.

    Lots of Evangelicals who won't vote for Romney.

    Lots of Hispanics who won't like the fact that Romney has demagogued the immigration issue.

    And Rick Perry not making much of an effort to get Romney elected as he plots his 2016 run.

    Every one that is not in the rich progressive liberal "do-good" NE.

    It also depends on who he is running against...

    A guy like Romney is getting hammered, Paul or Cain would smoke Obama in just about every state...

    The big state is California and its up for grabs right now - that should be the goal in 2012.

    Obama has Illinois and that is a huge advantage...

    You gotta kinda work around that..... The fact he has Illinois is huge, thats why you need California...

    I think Cain could actually win Illinois and I think Paul could actually win California...

    California will go solidly Democratic, Nick. They need bailouts and they won't get them from Republicans.

    The States that are in play are Colorado, Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia. If you're not sure just check Obama's travel itinerary for the past six months...he's been in full campaign mode and wherever he's been going is where he thinks he's in trouble.
