Nice analysis Ben. Making sure we field a full slate in 2013 will be critical to starting that shift.


I believe that Obama will win Virginia by around five points this year, so I think we'll be at least two states to the left of the tipping point state. I think the margin in Virginia will be better than Iowa and New Hampshire, and about the same as Colorado.

Of course, Ohio is polling like it may make a switch to the left side of Virginia, which will be a big move relative to last time. But, Virginia has been a reliably conservative state since 1964, and the move to the middle has been amazingly fast.


Ben, Really excellent analysis!!

Have not been on you blog in awhile and am happy to see your still on point.
