North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and New Hampshire all go Republican in 2012 (they all went Democrat in 2008).

Also, all of Nebraska goes Republican in 2008 (Democrats got one electoral vote in 2008)

No states go from Republican in 2008 to Democratic in 2012.

Democrats do hold Colorado, New Mexico, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada, Minnesota, and Florida (all swing states that went Democrat in 2008).

This gives Republicans the presidency with 277 Electoral votes.

Would be cool if Christie or Mitch Daniels became VP. Ole Mitch has been good to us over here in Indiana.

Yes, I think Rand Paul would be an attractive VP for Romney.

1) Mitt Romney
2) Biden (or Hillary Clinton... but that is not going to happen)
3) Christie (has been my prediction since last December)
4) Obama ... if Court upholds Obama Care and economy improves
5) Nebraska, Ohio, North Carolina, and maybe even New Hampshire will go GOP. The rest of the swing states will probably go to Obama. Michigan -- I am not sure -Romney is a Michigan native, but was opposed to auto bailout.
