I still say its tied.

I happen to agree, but there are some key Stats that Point to a Romney win.

The 2 main ones being the Recent Figures on Party Affiliation that show the Dems 7 Point advantage from 2008 Gone, if not reversed by a couple points.

And perhaps even more importantly poll after poll shows Romney up double digits among Independents.

Add to that the Historical Fact that if an Incumbent with a poor Economy is not over 50% in any Poll, and in a dead heat. They almost always lose. Late Deciders, and flippers tend to break heavily for the Challenger, Especially in a down Economy.

The POTUS isn't elected nationwide. He is elected state by state, with electors sent to Washington City in December.
Nationwide polls mean dick.

Hey that's a new one.

Usually it is the other Washington that uses Washington State.

Obama isnt leading in ANY of the polls - not even NPR.

He will have to pull a Houdini to get another term.

Not true at all. It doesn't matter that the president isn't elected by popular vote. National polling still shows a trend and if Gallup is accurate then the president is in a lot of trouble because that trend will show up in the bellwether states.
