4. The state is definitely still in play

I think at this point, the campaign is focusing on a strong firewall - and that seems to be the midwest states (OH, WI + NV). IA and NH are encouraging. The impression I get is they are still going after VA/CO, FL, and NC but maybe with a slightly lower emphasis than the states mentioned in the former category.

Regardless, I think at this point the team seems to be very good at their job. We'll see how this pans out in less than two weeks!

9. Small yes but

The polls I'm looking at aren't much larger in sample size. CNN/681 Rasmussen/750.

11. This race is basically returning

back to where it was before September. O leading in almost all battleground states, and Romney not having much of a path to 70.
