With all the focus on key battleground states, no one is making much of Romney’s small lead in the overall popular vote. Hmm. Of course, Obama may rack up a large margin in California and sweep away a small Romney lead, but let’s stay tuned.
The generic exit poll information on issue breakouts of the voters is deeply confusing. You can make a case for either candidate from some of the splits. One question is how much divergence from national figures there are in key states like Ohio and Colorado. I suspect we’ll be poring over the results for days or weeks, no matter who wins.
