Nine Swing States

The New York Times picks nine battleground states -- Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin -- where the presidential election is likely to be decided.

"All nine voted for Mr. Obama in 2008, only to see Republicans make big gains since then."

"Now, with many of those states transformed economically and politically by the recession, they are perhaps even less predictable than they were in past close elections. The disparity in their circumstances highlights the challenges that both the Obama and the Romney campaigns face in framing arguments that will resonate across the country."
