I grew up in Iowa, but moved away in 2001. Lived there 38 years. Iowa tends to flip back and forth between Rep & Dem in Pres cycles. 0zer0 carried it big in 2008. In fact, Iowa gave 0zer0 his start by winning the first caucus big. I think Iowa is anxious to undo its mistake. I predict Iowa flips to Romney this cycle.
Also, I was on vacation in Reno a week or so ago. Surprised to see several Anti-0zer0 billboards around town. Not just little yard signs...I’m talking big full size interstate billboards. That gives me hope that Nevada may really be in play and could also flip.
I don’t know about NH. But agree with others that think maybe Romney has some coattails left from his time in MA.
Ohio is the real prize. I pray it goes to Romney, otherwise we have to run the tables just about everywhere else.
If Romney takes IA, NV, NH, but loses OH, there could be a 269-269 tie in the electorial college. That means the House votes for Pres, and if the GOP controls it.. it means Romney. Romney better have won the popular vote big, or else it will be Florida 2000 all over again... this time with several states. If Romney wins by GOP votes in the house. I shudder to think of the race riots that will happen.
