Romney is losing Ohio.
Especially considering (A) Obama has been consistently up, there hasn't been any trading of the lead between Obama and Romney and (B) no way Romney wins a state that depends a lot on the car industry Romney wanted to sink. That's why Michigan (his birth place) is long gone for Mittens.

You can put OH in Obama's column. Democrats still need to go out and vote though...

Romney is now leading or has narrowed the lead in Florida, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, Nevada, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. If Ryan defeats Biden by a wide margin then I Dont expect Obama to come back from behind. Romney is already leading among independents and his base is more enthusiastic to vote.
It's gonna be tough for Obama to overcome.

The media has actually convinced you that the debates are some sort of horse race to the presidency. They're not that serious and don't quite have the effect on votes that they'd like you to think it does.

IF Romney outshines Obama in a town hall setting in two weeks, then I'd be a little worried if I were the Obama campaign in terms of momentum. But since that format forces Mitt Romney to behave like a normal human being on the level with other humans, I highly doubt it.

The third (and last) debate is on foreign policy. There isn't much leverage for Romney here...that's hardly Obama's weak suit. (to the chagrin of even many of Obama's biggest supporters)

7 of the last 9 challengers all got bumps after the first debate (yeah, even Mondale vs. Reagan).

the first debate has normally helped the challenger. In the nine elections between 1976 and 2008, there were only two years when the incumbent-party candidate gained ground relative to the challenger; these cases were 1976, when Gerald R. Ford halved his six-point deficit with Jimmy Carter, and 1988, when George H.W. Bush moved just slightly further ahead of Michael Dukakis.

But here’s the bad news for Mr. Romney: no candidate who trailed by as much he did heading into the first debate went on to win the election.

Also, you paid shill, here is your candidate basically going back on a bunch of his own campaign promises to "win" the debate:

It's going to be especially funny laughing at the OP as the election returns come in

The poor guy is obviously new to the political game. Put it this way, IF Romney wins, it'll be the biggest upset since Dewey Truman.

(CNN) - On the day that both presidential candidates are campaigning in Ohio, a new poll indicates a close contest in the race for the Buckeye State's 18 electoral votes.

According to a CNN/ORC International poll (PDF), 51% of likely voters in Ohio say they're backing President Barack Obama, with 47% supporting Republican nominee Mitt Romney. Obama's four point advantage is within the poll's sampling error.

Quote:
American Research Group is also out Tuesday with a poll in Ohio, with Romney at 48% and Obama at 47% among likely voters. ARG's previous Ohio survey, conducted in mid-September, had Obama at 48% and Romney at 47%.

"The new polls are a huge boost for Republicans, coming just a couple weeks after a string of polls made them wonder if there was any way to win without Ohio," says CNN Chief National Correspondent John King.

Three national polls released in the past 24 hours also indicate the race knotted up among likely voters. And two of the surveys, from ARG and Pew Research Center, also suggest a post debate bounce for Romney.

"There is clearly movement in Ohio similar to what we see nationally. You see it in our numbers. It's a very close race in Ohio and you feel it talking to people on the ground," adds King, who is reporting from the Buckeye State.
