President Obama opened his campaign to a half-empty stadium in a state that knows he is at war with its energy reserves and thus its future. No wonder the Buckeyes didn’t turn out. Four years of broken promises end up with empty stadiums.

Politico borrows an article from the Tampa Bay Tribune on the Hispanic vote in 2012. It is up for grabs, of course, As the Obama economy has been horrible for Latinos as well as everyone else. But the summary of the map gets one thinking about Jeb, Jeb, Jeb:

Based on current polling and past electoral performance, Obama has 19 states plus the District of Columbia – 247 electoral votes total – solidly behind him or leaning that way. Romney has 23 safe or leaning states, or 191 electoral votes.

That leaves eight states – Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Ohio, Iowa, Colorado and Nevada – with 100 electoral votes as the central battlegrounds.

So Obama could lose both Ohio and Florida and still have multiple paths to 270. But if Romney loses Florida, his only shot at winning would be to pick up a big state that hasn’t voted for a Republican president in years, such as Michigan or Pennsylvania.
