It's been about a month since I made this post...so I thought a little update was due.
Here is the RCP Electoral College Map as of right now.
You'll notice there have been some changes since the original post.
Obama has gone from 221 to 247...a net gain of 26 (MI and WI) electoral votes and puts him only 23 away from the 270 needed to win.
Romney has gone from 181 to 191...a net gain of 10 (MO) electoral votes and puts him 79 electoral votes away from 270.
It's really not looking good for Romney. There are only 100 electoral votes that are not counted as leaning toward Obmaa or Romney already...and
Romney needs 79 of those 100 to win. Not impossible...but he has a very narrow path to be able to pull this off.
There is still a lot of time left...but things seem to keep moving in Obama's favor.
