    I think it wasn't won in the battlegrounds. Obama's national margin was 3.5 points. So just taking the states where he did no worse than his national margin, Obama had 288 EVs.

    As I see it, the battle was won nationally. Ohio and Florida were gravy (not that there's any way the Obama campaign could have known that at the time, of course).
