Economy Improving Faster in Swing States

Bloomberg reports the geography of the U.S. economic rebound is providing an edge to President Obama's re-election.

"The unemployment rates in a majority of the 2012 battleground states are lower than the national average as those economies improve... Those eight states -- Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio and Virginia -- have a combined 101 electoral votes. Romney must win at least 79 of those electoral votes to prevail if all other states run true to their 2004 and 2008 partisan preferences."

"A projection Moody's made May 21 based on the model predicts an Obama victory with 303 electoral voters, with the Democrat carrying Ohio and Virginia and the Republican winning Florida."
