The thing about Ohio is that Obama figured that Romney had to have Ohio, and so Obama put a lot of resources there. He is undoubtedly ready with all the fraud and lawyers he can muster in Ohio. Obama doesn’t need to win there, he just needs to keep it close enough that he can jimmy the recount, maybe use some fancy lawyering. Romney, meanwhile, went with a strategy that met Obama head on in Ohio, so it is real close there, but also went after Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa, Nevada, and even Minnesota. Obama isn’t prepared to lose any of those states, and his strategy of creating a close election in Ohio and then using the power of the DOJ to muscle his way to a second term won’t work. He has to get all those other states, too. If Ohio is close, but he loses Pennsylvania, or Michigan, his litigation and riot strategy won’t work. It’s not likely he can be close enough in all those states, and come up with enough phony issues, to keep his hopes alive. Still not sure if he will ever concede, or if there is any in his entourage who will make him concede, but it won’t matter. He’ll be done.
Here are the scenarios:
Romney takes all the McCain 2008 states, plus NC VA FL IN CO. This yields 257 EVs. Then only one of the following must be won for a Romney victory:
1. OH(18) -or-
2. PA(20) -or-
3. MI(16) -or-
4. MN(10) + [NH(4) or IA(6) or NV(6)] -or-
5. WI(10) + [NH(4) or IA(6) or NV(6)] -or-
6. NV(6) + IA(6) (the tie scenario).
I have felt for a long time that there is something up with
all the emphasis on early voting. When i drove by BOE in
akron friday,lines out the door,all obamma voters. I have a
feeling they are able to vote multiple times there. If they
can get across town, why not to local-closer-precint?
Perhaps winning ‘handily’ (Barone’s term) will overcome the
fraud here in ohio. I’m hopeful and anticipating a Romney
win and i WILL enjoy it, but i’m pissed about being”disen-
franchised” by cheating.
