| No Comments

WASHINGTON--Obama campaign manager Jim Messina urges people to ignore the polls in a video posted Monday. Messina echoes the words I first heard from the late George W. Dunne, that the only poll that counts is the one on election day.

Messina's Math: Right now Obama 243 electoral votes to 191 for Romney. Toss up states: 8. Needed to win: 270 electoral votes.
