From here and here  we see that President Obama is up 51 to 46 in Ohio.
CNN and Marist have the President at 51% in Ohio as well. This was the high water mark for Willard. Now, PPP found that 19 % of Ohio's registered voters have already voted. Among them, the President won 76% to 24%. So, what must Willard do among the remaining voters in order to beat us there ?

below the squiggle : :-)

So, we set up the proportion :

.19 * .52 = .81 * x

x = 12 %.

So, Willard must win the remaining votes by 12 %.
Not. going. to. happen.

And Willard has no credible, realistic path to 270 Electoral College votes without Ohio.

So, let's donate, call, and get our voters to the polls.

Gravis hoodwinked Nate. But the reality is that we are ahead in pretty much every swing state.

He will catch up to reality. by November 7.

7:25 PM PT: McLaughlin (polling for George Allen in Virginia) has Willard up 7. Nobody else has anything close to that number. And now Nate has Virginia as light pink and favors Willard to win it. No wonder Nate is confused. And his model is confused.

Laughable mistake by Nate.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
