These THREE state WILL be barometers of the Election Night …….
I have a piece linked below …
But on MY OWN….
I’m inclined to believe that Obama WIL carry Ohio and Virginia in the end….
Florida will be close…..
But the early vote probably is Obama’s…
The logic behind the candidates homing in on the trio is simple: The way Republicans see it, Romney will have a much steeper climb winning the presidency without taking back all three from the Democratic column. And in the eyes of Obama’s team, they can all but ensure a second term if they win just one of the battlegrounds.
“There are nine states where the campaign is happening, but these are the three where, in all caps, it’s really happening,” said Republican strategist Bruce Haynes.
Obama’s high command is convinced that without a sweep of Virginia, Florida and Ohio, Romney can’t make up the difference further west to reach the needed 270 electoral votes.
“Romney needs an inside straight, he has to have all three,” said Obama campaign manager Jim Messina.
A second senior Obama official, looking at swing-state leads turning into swing-state ties since the first debate, said the electoral ramifications of the trio “is something that gives me a certain level of optimism.”Share on Facebook
