loser than we would like but it looks like we're going to win this thing:
Bottom line: right now the candidates are dead even in the national vote, but it's slightly trending towards Obama, perhaps beginning after the second debate or perhaps a bit before that. To the extent we can tell, the electoral college plays a bit better for Obama than it does for Romney, meaning that in a tie election overall it's more likely that Obama wins. It's a very close election, and no one should believe that it's all over by any means. But there's no question that I'd rather be in Obama's position than in Romney's going into the last debate and then the final weeks.
