    Just heard from a very well connected political lobbyist that Obama is pulling out of Florida and canceling his ad buys. The latest polls seem to agree that state is a loss for him. His last firewall is now Ohio, where he still has a 2 point lead. If Ohio goes, the race is over. Otherwise still neck and neck.

    Was it a "very well connected republican political lobbyist"?

    If Obama wins Ohio, ramen noodles has almost zero chance to be elected

    Well they are still trying to pull this state out even trying to suppress republican voters by sending out hoax letters.

    This made me laugh so much! :D

    Exactly. This thread should be closed pending an actual source citation.

    Massive ad buys in a state with numerous media markets and wildly varying population centers seems like a waste of money in an election where the number of undecided voters is so small and the bigger issue will probably be turnout (especially of Latinos who are natoriously lax voters). The democrats have what they call an unprecedented turnout effort. In addition, McCain had something like an 18% advantage with early voting in Florida in 2008 (Obama still won the state); but this year the Romney advantage is down to only about 2%.

    Even if he did pull out of FL (which he did not), so? Every single projection map I've come up with gives FL to Romney. There are MANY possible paths to victory for Obama, including ones without Ohio and Florida. Hell, he could lose Ohio, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina AND New Hampshire and still win by holding on to Nevada, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Virginia. This isn't the "LET'S PANIC THE OBAMA SUPPORTERS!" moment you wished to incite. Sorry about that.
