You Read It Here First
Back in June, I made this prediction:
Obama will lose both Virginia and North Carolina by more than 10 points. The notion that either state can now be considered "purple" is laughable. The number of "experts" in academia, government, and the media which will see (and are seeing) their credibility ruined will be talked about for years to come.
Now comes this bit of news today:
Facing a Mitt Romney surge in North Carolina polls, Team Obama is poised to pull back forces in the state that hosted the Democratic National Convention and Democratic advisors suggest that Virginia may be next to fall.
A lot can still happen, but things seem to be hardening for Romney. Though my 10 point prediction may end up a bit over-optimistic, Romney's momentum appears to be unstoppable. We shall see.
