Numbers of states are really unimportant.

But absolute control of jumbo Cal, NY, and Ill is a huge start in any electoral contest.

If the presidential election was based on congressional districts instead of the States in the Electoral College Romney would have won.

If ‘ifs’ and ‘buts’ were candy and nuts, we’d all have a Merry Christmas.

Yes of course; the 30 GOP controlled states and the 25+ lead of GOPers in Congress is just something Fox New made up like Obama’s spending problem.
