Just when it seemed as if the stars were aligning for Romney out comes this great article over at www.politico.com that shows even though the economic news nationally is dismal for Obama he does have some hope in the battleground states. In many of the key states like Ohio the economy is better than the rest of the nation and expected to get better right up to the election. The stronger economy is reflected in the latest poll numbers in these swing states which many seem to favor Obama. Wouldn’t that be interesting if the nation’s economy as a whole was tanking but the economies of the key swing states were rising giving Obama a big enough push to win a 2nd term. Well maybe not interesting, kind of scary actually. Check out some of the other swing states below or the original story.
