Florida still remains in the Romney category. 538 gives Obama a 66% chance of victory.
RCP seems to disagree. Electoral College is down to 201 to 191, with the rest being toss ups. Romney is continuing to gain in the "likability" rating, up to 4.8 from a -1.2 just before the first debate.
As much as Nate Silver does not want to admit it, this is a dogfight, and is going to be a very, very close election. I think the 66% number is soft.
