Romney's Narrow Path to the White House

Chris Cillizza: "A detailed analysis of Romney's various paths to the 270 electoral votes he would need to claim the presidency suggests he has a ceiling of somewhere right around 290 electoral votes. While Romney's team would absolutely take a 290-electoral-vote victory, that means he has only 20 electoral votes to play with -- a paper-thin margin for error."

"Under the 2012 map, Romney would win 292 electoral votes if he replicated the Bush 2004 victory. But New Mexico seems like a very tough place to win -- not to mention the fact that he would again need to carry Ohio, Florida, Colorado and Nevada as well as North Carolina and Virginia."
