With the upcoming election coming soon, the swing states are getting a lot of attention from the presidential candidates. Gov. Palin was campaigning for Sen. McCain in Orlando about a week ago and Bill Clinton will also be in Orlando tomorrow campaigning for Sen. Obama.

I read somewhere that the swing states will tilt the vote either towards Sen. McCain or Sen. Obama, and that Florida is the mother of all swing states! That the I-4 Corridor (Tampa-Orlando-Daytona) determines how the state will vote; therefore, making it one of the most visited and important places to campaign in.

**This post about which state you think is important and why? Not a political post about Republicans and Democrats. Thank you.

I would guess the state with the most delegates is the most important.

I would say Colorado and Virginia will be the key states. McCain could win FL and OH, and Obama would still win as long as he wins PA, NH, and either CO or VA. If he wins both or FL or OH, that would just be a bonus and hurt McCain even more. NC is starting to lean towards Obama.
