Romney's Shrinking Battleground

Jonathan Chait looks at where Mitt Romney is currently running ads and notes the eight states "add up to a neat 100 electoral votes, of which Romney needs 79 and Obama just 23. If you play with the electoral possibilities, you can see that this would mean Obama could win with Florida alone or Ohio plus a small state or Virginia plus a couple small states, and so on."

"Unless I'm missing something badly here, Romney needs either a significant national shift his way -- possibly from the debates or some other news event -- or else to hope that his advertising advantage is potent enough to move the dial in almost every swing state in which he's competing."
