ELECTION UPDATE

Barack Obama

AMES, Iowa (AP)President Barack Obama is poised to eke out a victory in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to win re-election, having beaten back Republican Mitt Romney‘s attempts to convert momentum from the debates into support in all-important Ohio, according to an Associated Press analysis a week before Election Day.

While the Democratic incumbent has the upper hand in the electoral vote hunt, Romney has pulled even, or is slightly ahead, in polling in a few pivotal states, including Florida and Virginia. The Republican challenger also appears to have the advantage in North Carolina, the most conservative of the hotly contested nine states that will determine the winner.

While in a tight race with Obama for the popular vote, Romney continues to have fewer state-by-state paths than Obama to reach 270. Without Ohio’s 18 electoral votes, Romney would need last-minute victories in nearly all the remaining up-for-grabs states and manage to pick off key states now leaning Obama’s way, such as Iowa or Wisconsin.

  1. Keepin’ the faith M. It is our year. Perhaps had the GOP found an intelligent, believable liar to represent them instead of the smirking bully and whining Mamma’s boy Lyin’ Mitt Romney; they may have been able to deceive the people (Independants that is because most Democrats can’t be deceived and most Republicans don’t need to be deceived; just ordered to obey) but Mitt is such an obvious shit; he almost couldn’t help but fail.
