For Governor Romney to win the Presidency he must focus his efforts in certain states. Those states would be New Hampshire, Pennsylvanian, Ohio, Virginia, Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Colorado, and Nevada. With those swing states there is 131 electoral votes up for grabs. Those 10 states is where I believe the election will be decided. Of course over the next few months this map can look very different. Four of those swing states in this election President Bush won in 2000 and in 2004, Those states are Ohio, Virginia, Florida, and Colorado. New Hampshire President Bush won in 2000 and in the 2004 election President Bush won Nevada and Iowa. Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvanian President Bush never won but lost in close margins. Every swing state you see on the map below Barack Obama won in 2008. Indiana and North Carolina are two states that Obama won in 2008 that I believe are in the lean Romney column and are not considered swing states in this election, Governor Romney does have some work cut out for him because for him to win he must turn some of the swing states that Obama won in 2008 into his column. There are many possible paths Governor Romney can take to get to 270.
