    Especially when you toss Wisconsin into the mix.

    The fact we are even discussing the POSSIBILITY of a blue state flip this late means the O campaign is in serious trouble.
    Not one state...or two...but FOUR of FIVE!

    Some of these states that some polls are showing as in play are really not. There is no way a heavily union state like Michigan is going R. Pennsylvania isn't in play either. The population centers of the state will vote D and carry the rest of the state kicking and screaming with them.

    It will all come down to Ohio. I'd get comfortable with the likelihood of having 4 more years of Pres Obama.

    To say nothing of all the D+8 polls out there using 2008 Dem turnout. Thats the only reason O has been even remotely competitive til now. BUT he's still <50% in Rasmussen/Gallup etc polls.

    After 4 years any president that can't get above 50% is toast.

    Cmon, the President has nothing to do with gas prices, regardless of who is in office. Supply and demand, the oil companies, OPEC, etc. They control oil prices. What would you want Obama to do, cut the fed gas tax? That would save us 18 cents per gallon.

    That simply is not true. Increasing refinery capacity would generate some downward pressure on gas prices over the long term. That is an executive function, all you have to do is issue the permits to allow it.

    George Will predicted a 321-217 Romney landslide on ABCs This Week.

    A company still has to want to increase capacity or build new refineries. I think the President can help make an environment in which gas prices can go down, but the oil co's still need to choose to increase capacity, import more, etc.

    I hope it is a landslide repudiation of everything Obama and the Democrats stand for.

    That isn't true. They can't choose to do it now, they are not allowed to. They would build more refineries in a second if they could, they would love to be at 125% of production vs the total us demand.

    Except that Michigan overwhelmingly voted for a Republican governor a couple years ago after 8 years of a democrat who ran the state into the ground. Michigan voted for Reagan in both 80 & 84 so it could happen again.

    O and R tied in Pennsylvania at 47%.

    NEVER thought I'd see that.
