Willing to be pleasantly surprised

I want to be wrong. I would feel very happy getting this election wrong. But this is the way I think the map breaks tonight (and I think WI and IA are longshots for Mitt too). I think it will be close overall but that Obama takes it in the end.

Va to Romney?

I think Wisconsin holds for Obama. If Romney loses there and Tommy Thompson goes done…..Paul Ryan’s stock plummets.

I generally think of VA as a Republican state even if Obama did carry it last time. Could be wrong about that (and about everything), obviously.

Va has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the nation. Why? Federal jobs….the Old Dominion is changing alas but I think the GOP holds on today.

Stupid Drudge is getting my hopes up about Ohio.

Why had you thought Wisconsin would go to Romney? As it turns out, Obama’s margin was much smaller in Colorado, for example.

My thinking was that Wisconsin would go Romney because Paul Ryan is from there.

But I did note that I thought it was a longshot.

Surprised? Yes
Half right
