Without Ohio, Romney needs a different strategy that would most likely have to include Wisconsin and Iowa. Iowa has gone over 75% chance to Obama. Wisconsin is up to 88% for Obama. Obama remains forecast to receive over 50% popular vote nationally at 51.3%-47.6% for Romney. Guess he got the wrong 47%. Romney backers won't want to look at the Now Cast numbers which show that if the vote were held today, there would be a 97.8% chance of Obama victory.
I guess that maybe those R's were wrong. Maybe they do need at least part of that 47%?
