I would venture at this point, 183 votes are pointed to Obama. I believe that Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, certainly Iowa, and New Mexico, New Hampshire and Vermont are all definitely in play for Romney - and very iffy for the current occupant.

It isn't so much math as it is broken promises, exceedingly high unemployment, and loss of wages (over 3000$ per year per family) lost under Obama's last 4 years. Add to that the promise from Obama of more of the same, with higher taxes a certainty, more unemployment a likelihood, and a non-existent foreign policy that is getting American civilians killed now, and things are not simple math any more, imho.

We shall see, shall we not...

You know, come to think of it, I wouldn't necessarily discount Massachusetts and perhaps even Connecticut. They have lost tremendous amounts of industry and jobs under Obama. Those folk are not stupid.
