Stephen Green gives 5 potential scenarios in the electoral college this Novemeber. Two favors President Obama and the other three favors Romney. Even accounting for a squeaker by both the President and Romney where both could win the Presidency at exactly 270 electoral votes. BTW, 270 votes is the majority needed to win in the electoral college. Even if Romney wins certain states such as New York, California, and even Illinois will still go for Obama. In the case of Illinois I can't be surprised at all!
