Skip to comments.Romney takes his first Electoral College lead

Since the debate on Tuesday, which many analysts ceded to President Obama, mainly on strength of his having shown up, the term comeback kid has been getting play among liberal pundits. Yet, this afternoons Real Clear Politics Electoral Map suggests goaway kid (or maybe just, Go away, kid!) is a more fitting description.
The map for the first time gives challenger Mitt Romney a lead of 206 to 201 over Obama in Electoral College votes. Strikingly, the map has Florida (with 29 Electoral votes), Michigan (with 16), Ohio (with 18), Pennsylvania (with 20), Virginia (with 13), and Wisconsin (with 10) all in the toss-up column. In addition, North Carolina, with its 15 Electoral votes, has moved from toss-up to lean Romney.
On the popular vote side of the tally board, Romney has opened up a 1-point lead with 47.7% to Obamas 46.7%. The Intrade odds, however, continue to show the president with a commanding 63% to 36.9% lead. Also the Electoral College map with no toss-ups still gives Obama a victory with 294 votes to Romneys 244.
Very good news.
Thank you very much!
Keep praying and VOTE the MARXIST OUT!
LORD, HEAR OUR PRAYERS.
The infighting is about to start in the Obastard side.
The more these people come to the realization that they may end up in investigation for corruption, the more they will try to cover their backsides/tracks.
This, is going to get real nasty in the next few.
Romney needs to run like he is 20 points down..all the way to the election. With the energy created by the smell of victory, I have no doubt that will happen.
Obama, you thought lowering the sea levels was hard? Well, now you are going to have to try and stop a landslide.
If Obama loses he will pardon the blind sheik. He will claim he is doing it to heal damaged sensitivities in the Middle East.
Patton: “Now there’s another thing I want you to remember. I don’t want to get any messages saying that “we are holding our position.” We’re not holding anything. Let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly and we’re not interested in holding onto anything except the enemy. We’re going to hold onto him by the nose and we’re going to kick him in the ass. We’re going to kick the hell out of him all the time and we’re going to go through him like crap through a goose!”
Yup.... Especially with George C. Scott saying it as Patton.
“Also the Electoral College map with no toss-ups still gives Obama a victory with 294 votes to Romneys 244.”
This should move down due to Virgina, to 281-257, although I don’t know when. New Hampshire is the next closest, which would make it 277-261, within 8.
yes... Romney/Ryan will take the WHITE CRIB back to AMERICANS who love America!!
