To oust the Democratic incumbent, Romney would need to take up-for-grabs Florida, Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina, New Hampshire and Virginia, which would put him at 267 votes, and upend Obama in either Ohio or Iowa.
Mitt would have to pull off a miracle.
The funny thing about it is if Obama wins, unless he locks down the Country like a dictator, the Tea Party will be fired up into a frenzy and make great gains.
It would be the best thing for the Tea Party. Very bad for the Country though.
Obama will end up the most despised President ever if he wins a second term.
