NPR Junk and the Real Deal

I was listening to NPR today, while helping my Aunt out after a car accident.  "On Point" was on, and I must say I listen to AM radio-particularly NPR-specifically because they tell good stories in their reporting.  They may not always be right or correct, but I am an old school AM radio guy.  Anyway, some dufus on the air from out East was saying Romney was pulling ads out of Wisconsin, and used this to say he was doomed.

Wrong, buck.  This story at the Washington Post was the one I was waiting for.  The three battleground states the story talks about are MichiganPennsylvania, and Wisconsin.  All three are within shouting distance for Romney, and these are areas the Obama team should have had shorn up by now.

Throw into the mix Oiho (sorry, couldn't resist it...just like the "57 states" joke), FloridaNevadaMissouriIowa and Colorado, and you have the makings of not just a Romney win, but the potential for a blowout.

If I were to predict the race right now, based on polling, cash on hand, momentum and state and national sentiments, I'm saying it's either a close win by either candidate, or a blowout by Romney on Election Day.  Short of some catastrophic event happening within the Romney camp, I just can't see a blowout by President Obama.

As you're looking at polls, one thing to ask is whether you're looking at Likely Voters or Registered Voters.  So, what do you think?  Look forward to hearing from you!
