Iowa is a must-win. It’s hard to see how Romney can get a majority in the Electoral College without Iowa.
By winning Wisconsin OR Colorado OR New Hampshire OR Nevada.
If Romney sweeps FL-VA-OH he has 266 and only needs 4 more.
“Iowa is a must-win. Its hard to see how Romney can get a majority in the Electoral College without Iowa.”
He could do it, IF he had Ohio. With Ohio, Romney would not need either Iowa or Colorado.
However, without Ohio, Iowa -and- Colorado become VERY important, as they will provide the electoral votes Romney needs to get over the top. (This assumes Romney also gets New Hampshire, which seems to be leaning in his favor).
Ohio still remains “the key”. If Romney wins it before midnight, the election will be his.
