American Election Update - Just a few states decide everything

47 Days to the US Election, which will be held on November 6, 2012 and which will determine where the world is going on so many things in the years ahead.
Just nine states look competitive:
Colorado and Nevada in the Southwest;
Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin in the Midwest;
Florida, North Carolina and Virginia in the South;
and New Hampshire in the Northeast.
Obama is currently the favourite in eight of those nine states (all of them bar North Carolina).

The President looks particularly good in Nevada and Wisconsin — he leads by about 5 points in each. If he takes those, he’d be on 253 electoral votes and either one of Florida or Ohio would be enough to get him over the finish line.
Romney has not helped himself by having a bad week but 7 weeks is a long time in politics and much can happen.
