Response to no_hypocrisy (Reply #5)

19. It's close nationally. But we don't elect a president nationally.

Mitt's currently running up his numbers in states he was already winning in.

Going from 60% in Alabama to 70% in Alabama boosts his standing in national polls. And does absolutely nothing for actually getting elected.

In swing states, Mitt needs basically all of them to win. And he's nowhere close to that in state polling.
