36. I'm not sure these poll numbers should be too worrisome

These polls include samples from all over the country. But what really seems to win the elections are unfortunately the swing states. That's why Andy Borrowitz said "now millions will be spent by the candidates to become President of Ohio". We know how Nebraska will vote and Alabama etc. So polling people in those redder than red states really doesn't make much difference in the outcome. But if he keeps his edge in the swing states even during this time where the media is peeing down their collective leg over this new and improved Romney, then I don't get too worried. I don't like it and it's not good but if he can keep his lead in the swing states, especially Ohio, then I can maintain some sense of calm.
