Yep - Obama is doomed



President Obama’s chances of winning the Electoral College were 64.8 percent as of Tuesday’s FiveThirtyEight forecast, down slightly from 66.0 percent on Monday.

The forecast will not yet reflect any effects from Tuesday night’s debate in New York, any impact of which will require a few days to become apparent in the forecast.

President Barack Obama retains steady leads over Mitt Romney in Wisconsin and Iowa, two battlegrounds drawing increased attention in the final sprint to Election Day, according to new polls conducted just before and after Tuesday's presidential debate.

Since three losses and one blowout win still results in a 1-3 record (unless like Ike Taylor you prefer to focus on favorable statistics rather than the scoreboard) it will take more than Mitt running up the score in the Confederate States of America to get Romney elected.

If Gallup had Obama ahead outside of Dixie yesterday that probably remains true today - first one to 270 electoral votes wins

One of the risks in focusing too much on the results of any one poll, like the Gallup national tracking poll, is that you may lose sight of the bigger picture.

On Thursday, that story was one of President Obama continuing to hold leads in most polls of critical states. Of the 13 polls of swing states released on Thursday, Mr. Obama held leads in 11 of them....

Mr. Obama’s chances of winning the Electoral College improved to 70.4 percent on Thursday from 65.7 percent on Wednesday, according to the forecast.

I can only imagine the outrage if Romney wins the popular vote and loses in the Electoral College - I know how upset the GOP was when that occurred in 2000 - maybe Romney can ask the Supreme Court to elect him
