McCain is reportedly giving up on Colorado and New Mexico.
Which leaves him with what options to get to 270 electoral college votes?
Not many, and all of them seem to count on Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania? Where McCain is down by at least 10 points? And which hasn’t gone to a Republican in like 20 years. Really?
I mean, there’s still two weeks until the election, anything can happen, two weeks is a lifetime in politics, yadda yadda yadda, but (and with apologies to those who fear jinxes and such) if some special McCain-saving thing doesn’t happen, and if the “lifetime” of this next two weeks doesn’t turn out to be long enough, then simple math tells you where this is all most likely going.
