Middle Cheese: ‘Bottom Line, I Think Election Comes Down to Ohio’

Middle Cheese checks in:

As of today, I think Mitt is ahead in Florida and Virginia.  Mitt will be in Florida all day on Saturday campaigning with Marco Rubio, with goal of putting Florida away.  Virginia leans Romney; the campaign going up with ads blasting Obama’s comments about the Navy in Tidewater. 

Colorado and New Hampshire are looking good, but too close to call. Obama’s up slightly in Iowa and Nevada, but I’d also characterize those as too close to call.  There’s a new Rasmussen Pennsylvania poll showing Obama +5 ahead; it’ll take a late surge for Romney to win there.  My guess is that Michigan is more likely to go for Mitt than Pennsylvania. 

Bottom line: Election comes down to Ohio, I think.  Nail-biter.

It brought me much -- indeed, too much -- joy to hear of the Trump administration's rollback of restrictions on incandescent light bulbs, even if the ban will remain in place. The LED bulbs are terrible. They give off a pitiable, dim, and altogether underwhelming "glow," one that never matched the raw (if ... Read More
