The simple fact is that Ohio has been too close for too long to expect that Obama would win it by five points or more. (Even the most optimistic pro-Obama types would have acknowledged that a month ago.)
In the four presidential elections prior to 2008, Democratic candidates got 9,060,521 total votes in Ohio, as compared to 8,965,170 for the Republican candidates, according to calculations made by the Cleveland Plain Dealer. In 2008, despite routing John McCain nationally, Obama carried the state by just 262,224 votes out of more than 5.6 million cast.
No one expects Romney to underperform McCain in the state — both because he is far better funded than the Arizona senator was and the incumbent is far less popular than he was in 2008.

It's so amusing to see the left backtrack in an late effort to save a shred of their non-existent credibility. Romney has improved on McCain's early voting totals in 2008 by around 250,000 - the same as Obama's margin of victory in 2008.

I do hope Obama's sycophants continue to delude themselves about Ohio and this election. That only helps Mitt Romney.

Gotta get that readership up for the next few days, I guess. Obama will win. Cons will go into hiding, talk about how the election was rigged, or will revert back to spreading lies about Obama for the next 4 years

Ohio moves from "Toss up" to "Lean Obama" to "Leading Obama to the White House".

Thank you, OP. Hahha. I know you are happy about this!
