270 Electoral Votes

I sometimes get frustrated with hearing people talk about the national polls. It seems that people forget that the electoral college system dictates who wins the presidency in the United States. The national polls have little or no meaning at all. They certainly can predict who is more popular among the general population, but they are not a good indicator of who will be elected president.

To win the presidency, a candidate must win enough states to win 270 electoral votes. Therefore, a few wins in a few key states are really all that matters in a presidential contest. Ohio is that kind of state.

Once before on this blog, I challenged the notion that America wouldn't support Barack Obama. He doesn't need all Americans or even a majority of Americans to support him. He only needs a few key states to go his way and we will have this radical liberal as our Commander-in-Chief.
