Ohio is still a huge problem, even Dick Morris admitted it on Fox last night.
Actually that's not what Dick Morris said. He complained that everyone should stop focusing on Ohio, because Romney is going to win by 4-5 nationally and so other states will take care of the EVs and that Romney is spreading the field while Obama is down to his firewall (Ohio, Iowa, Nevada).
It's impossible to win national vote by 4-5 and lose electoral college. Only if the race is under 1.5% could their be a split. And the national vote will not be close. Romney will win 52-47.

(Single Issue Voter: Obama Must Go!)
More or less, the popular vote for President in the US is only of ceremonial significance. It has no legal status.
If the states through their legislatures wanted to - they could legally appoint the electors themselves who in turn would choose the President.
The only federal body the people directly elect is the Congress. Before 1913, they only elected the House Of Representatives and state legislatures chose the state’s Senators.
We have an indirect election of the President.

Here in Michigan...in 2008, in the Detroit area, all you saw were Obama lawn signs, they were everywhere. This year, ive seen just 2. Also, in 2008, outside gas stations in Detroit, the Dems had 2 people registering voters,,,this year, zero..none. The enthusiasm of Obama is simply gone, Michigan will go red.
