Focus On The House: Lee Anderson (GA-12) | Main | I'm Hearing, Anecdotally, About A Lot of Romney Signage In Areas That Went For Obama in 2008

THEN AND NOW

When you are running for re-election, you try to expand the map if you've had a great first term.

If you don't, then you are on defense.

There is a shitload for the President to defend, and I don't think we have spent enough time looking at this race in this manner. Always focused on Romney's need to rise to 270, instead of the now-troublesome task for the President to keep 270. With Florida, North Carolina, and, from the looks of it, Virginia and Colorado now trending Romney, the President is ceding a lot, and Mitt is looking at starting more fires. What a difference 90 minutes can make, and that is why we cannot be overconfident or cocky about tonight. Things changed big time October 3rd for Romney. If they change back, the second map becomes critical. If they keep going his way, look for an inverse of the 2008 map soon.
