AP: Romney Path To Victory Narrows
In early voting, undecided voters appear to favor President Obama. In Ohio, Virginia, North Carolina and Wisconsin, Romney is having trouble staying competitive.
“The big strategic moment coming out of the conventions in my view was whether or not Romney and his campaign could succeed in expanding the parameters of the battleground,” said Tad Devine, a top adviser to 2000 Democratic nominee Al Gore and 2004 nominee John Kerry. “They have not been able to do that.”
All this has left Romney with an extraordinarily tight path and few options but to bear down in the states where he is competing aggressively. Time, though, is running out.
