Barack Obama can be defined by many words. President. Democrat. Husband. Father.
In a separate rally in Fort Pierce, Fla., Vice President Joe Biden further warned voters that "Romnesia" may also be contagious, because Romney's running mate may have "contracted" it. "All of a sudden Paul Ryan, the budget hawk, the guy who introduced the budget plan that actually already passed ... all of a sudden, he doesn't remember it," Biden told the crowd.
If these speeches and jabs are any indication, Obama might be getting nervous about reelection. If the campaign season ended today, Real Clear Politics (RCP) projects a narrow 271 to 266 win for Obama. This five electoral vote difference shows that Romney can win the whole thing if claims the votes of any one of the battleground states that Obama currently leads: Iowa (6), Michigan (16), Nevada (6), Ohio (18), Pennsylvania (20), and Wisconsin (10). This starkly contrasts what we saw just a few weeks ago, when Obama commanded leads in nine out of the 10 swing states.
