If Romney Loses Florida, Election 2012 Over
According to the recent 2012 Election analysis performed by the Associated Press, Mitt Romney must win Florida or he loses the Presidential Election in November. President Obama leads Mitt Romney in the electoral college votes, but he does not yet have the 270 electoral votes needed to claim the bedroom in the White House.
President Obama has 242 electoral votes in states where he has big leads or that are leaning his way. Mitt Romney, the virtual shoe-in for the Republican nomination, has 188 electoral votes in states where he has big leads or that are leaning his way. This leaves nine states with 104 electoral votes available to win and decide the election.
Thus any combination of electoral votes in the remaining nine states that equals 28 votes or more and that votes for President Obama means Mitt Romney loses the 2012 Election. Of these nine crucial states only one state has electoral votes in equal to or greater than 28 votes, and that state is Florida with 29 votes.
President Obama won the state of Florida in 2008, but the foreclosure problem, high unemployment and gas prices are hurting President Obama in Florida.
In case you are wondering about those other eight states, which really don't matter if Mitt Romney loses Florida, they are Iowa with 6 votes, Colorado with 9 votes, New Hampshire with 3 votes, New Mexico with 5 votes, Nevada with 6 votes, North Carolina with 15 votes, Ohio with 18 votes, and Virginia with 13 votes.
