Back in February, I penned a story about the electoral college, and how Obama had a lead over then presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Now that Romney is the Republican nominee, (and doing a horrible job), time to update my figures on the race.
Obama states; Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, DC. Maryland, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii. 25 states plus DC. 303 electoral votes
Romney states; Alaska, Montana, Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Arizona, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Missouri, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and West Virginia. 24 states, 206 electoral votes
Tossup states; Florida. 1 state, 29 electoral votes.
Now, things can change, but as of right now, Romney has quite an uphill battle on his hands. Obama definitely had the advantage. Romney must change the narrative, or he’s a certain loser. Judging by what he’s done so far, it doesn’t look good for ole Mittens.
