I saw this sign in Cocoa Beach, while driving down A/1A to visit my parents in Vero Beach. The “Sorry Dad” addendum captures the generation gap of supporters of President Obama. It also shows how important it is to have a sense of humor about our differences. My Dad loved this picture. I’m sure the Dad mentioned in the sign loves it too.

If the election were held today, It’s a toss-up. But Romney wins the popular vote. One state would decide the election, if held today. Ohio.
With the momentum from the Popular vote, I suspect Romney would carry Ohio.
However these polls were all taken before the last debate, which was also considered a toss-up. It remains to be seen if Obama has stopped the momentum Romney has built from the first debate. But since my earlier post congratulated President Obama, I decided now was a good time to give Romney credit for quite a comeback.
Obama still has a distinct advantage. If he sweeps the other 3 tan states in this map, Colorado, Iowa and New Hampshire, he doesn’t need Ohio. Romney does need Ohio. Bookies still favor Obama, and pay 2 to 1 for a Romney victory. But it’s gonna be a close one.
If the election were held today, Obama wins without Virginia or Florida. He has a small lead in every unclaimed state in this map, but doesn’t need those states to win.
