Electoral College Maps - Romney CANNOT win
There are plenty of different versions of projected electoral college maps.
The one above seems as good as any.
All the electoral college maps are based on state by state polls and if they do not exist past history. (Some states are very safe Republican or Democrat.)
Romney needs to take just about EVERY toss up state. And he won't do it - not by a long shot.
Dems have their own electoral college maps as well.
Dems are talking about the possibility of taking states like Indiana and Montana which are well into Republican territory.
All the current maps do not take into account Gary Johnson running as 3rd party.
All the current polls are inaccurate and don't include Gary Johnson.
This will take it further towards Obama.
Let alone when Obama starts running attack ads on the baggage Romney is carrying, almost all of which has not been aired to the General Public.
The only indication of the effect of Gary Johnson is a national poll by PPP a month ago, where Obama's lead went from 4 pts to 7 pts when Johnson was included.
Three percentage points is a small amount but it would be enough to swing most toss up states to Obama.
Of course nobody has produced an electoral college map of Obama vs Ron Paul.
The poll data isn't there.
State polls of Obama vs Ron Paul including Gary Johnson are required.
But neither Romney nor Obama want these polls run.
Obama because he knows he can easily beat Romney but he would be 2nd favorite against Ron Paul.
Romney because it would discredit his nomination attempt.
Projected Electoral College Results if election held 5/5, Obama vs Romney
Obama 303 Romney 191
Add in G Johnson factor, Obama takes Florida and Colorado - Obama 341 Romney 191
I call that a landslide.
It won't me link to the updated Electoral College Map reflecting current polls.

In the end, more than freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all – security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free and was never free again.”
― Edward Gibbon
An adequate summing up of America today.
American's want freedom from responsibility.
The responsibility of defending the Constitution.
The responsibility of ensuring the candidates for government they vote for, support the Constitution.
The responsibility of being well informed.
The responsibility of ensuring due legal process and the rule of law.
The responsibility of taking care of yourself and your family.
The responsibility of treating people with respect.
There are lots more responsibilities that American's have abdicated themselves from. American's better wake up and take some responsibility real quick.
