1. New Mexico, leans dem? yesterday a poll had Obama up by 14!

CA and IL as 'likely' rather than solid dem? I also disagree. CA will not vote Romney and IL will not go against Obama, it's favorite son.

Iowa as lean GOP? I doubt that. at worse it should be toss up--as should Arizona, if recent polls are to be believed.

2. Also, California NOT SOLID DEM makes this map laughable.

3. I recommend this map as a better visual and better statistical representative of the race today:

Deep blue states are showing huge Obama leads while Texas is down to single digits.

Ohio as leaning to Obama rather than a tossup may be generous but the rest of it is pretty solid.

4. My Honest take

Since I am not trying to claim It as close to get ratings

Ca,Ct,Il-Solid Dem.
Me,Mn,NJ,NM,Or,Mi,Wi-Likely Dem
Co,NV,OH,PA,VA-Lean Dem(Obama has a slight advantage here and leaning his direction but he will have to fight for them)
Pure tossup-Fl,NC,Az,In,IA,Mo
Lean Gop-NE(1 EV)
