since we are talking hurricane politics, consider that the worst hit thus far are all blue states: NJ, NY, DE, MD, CT.
Electoral effect on Romney: Near zero.
Two swing states (VA, PA) have been affected, at least residually, in their blue areas (northern VA, greater Philly). This could affect turnout and certainly has affected early voting.
Electoral effect on Obama: potentially decisive in a bad way.
PA’s impact other than power outages has been relatively minimal.. sadly 4 reported deaths.. I wouldn’t expect it to affect much here.
Western part of state nothing more than some slight gusts and constant drizzle.
Certainly could have been worse, but looks like colliding of weather front and storm affected direction far more than previously predicted. Went from forecasts of constant rain all day today 2-3 inches total to 1/2 an inch on delivered on and off.
LOL. Who says God doesn't have a sense of humor.
