538

The latest 538 simulations have Obama winning 90.9% of the time with an average of 313.0 EC. The popular vote is seen as 50.8-48.3 or a 2.5 point lead for Obama.

The closest state contests are:
Florida 50.3% Obama
North Carolina 74.4% Romney
Virginia 79.4% Obama
Colorado 79.7% Obama
Iowa 84.3% Obama
New Hampshire 84.6% Obama

The following battleground states are now considered safe Obama meaning more than a 90% probability:
Michigan
Pennsylvania
Wisconsin
Nevada
Ohio

Obama has 303 EC at least 79%
Obama has 332 EC at least 50%

I find it interesting that Romney spent all day in Florida at 3 different events in the state. Obama was here on Thrusday. Why would Romeny be here is he has it locked up? Doesn't he need to work on Nevada, Ohio, Wisconsin, Virgina, Iowa etc.

If you take the populous for granted they could revolt.

Just read a pretty interesting article that unless turnout is almost identical to 2008 there is virtually no way that Obama can win and most of these polls will be way off. Evidently Gallup just released a poll conducted with almost 10,000 people to ascertain a party affiliation and it is currently GOP +1.

We'll know the answers to all these thing soon, but I don't find the prospect of the electorate being closer to 2004 than 2008 all that surprising. I find people claiming the Dems are as energized as they were in 2008 to be less likely.

Ignore the headline and look at the numbers.

If they are accurate than it's obvious Nate Silver is ignoring them and his predictions are going to be WAY off.

Most polls show a substantial Dem oversample and these numbers show that it should be a GOP oversample to be accurate.

Again, all depends on if these are accurate numbers.

If you add in "leaners" it is a +3 GOP advantage. Combine that with Romney's double digit lead among independents and all of a sudden the entire landscape changes.

Well, right NOW I am predicting 264 or 267 for Romney... so won't be hard for me to be right.. hopefully I'm wrong and Romney pulls down 300+

But if Romney pulls less than 260 (as many here seem to think) I will happily admit that my understanding of the current political landscape is off base.

Everyone keeps talking about Romney's momentum has stopped or reversed.. yet I don't see it. Last week he led in only one or two national polls now he leads in pretty much all of them (IBD/TIPP being the outlier)

You can talk about the electoral map all you want, but if Romney ACTUALLY ends up with a 2-3 point lead nationally, there is no way he doesn't win electorally as well. That isn't my prediction, I just think that we have yet to see ANYTHING that shows a definitive edge right now for either one.
QFT,

Heh, big big guy.....

Could you make a map that we could see how you think the ec is going to fall out?

It's simple.. here are the swing states I see going for Romney (this adds up to 267..and is how I see it today but I'll save my "real" prediction for next Wednesday)

FL, NC, VA, NH, CO, IA

I could see one of these falling out and Romney dropping to 258-263 range but I could also see the polls being WAY off and Romney pulling every swing state and possibly some Obama "leaning" ones.

So you see Romney taking every battleground except for Ohio and Nevada?
