As we get closer to Election day more and more importance is being put onto the electoral college maps.
Right now it depends who you talk to as to which are swing states and which are not.
If we look at the Real Clear Politics averages of the states we see of the most cited swing states Romney leads in three: Florida, Virginia, every so slightly in Colorado.
So imagine if the following scenario took place.
A close election. Romney wins the above three but also manages to squeak out wins in Nevada and Iowa.
