Sabato: Without Ohio Romney's Chances Are Slim, But 'Every Election Breaks At Least One Rule'
With just 22 days left in the campaign, Bill Hemmer took out the electoral map on America's Newsroom, going over various election night scenarios with Larry Sabato, director of the UVA Center for Politics.
Sabato pointed out that
the result will once again most likely hinge on what voters in Ohio decide. No Republican has ever lost in Ohio and won the White House, while the Buckeye State has picked the winner in 27 of the past 29 presidential elections.
Sabato said Romney's chances are "thin," if he loses Ohio, but pointed out that "every election breaks at least one rule."
So how can Romney get to 270 electoral votes without Ohio in the win column? Check out the full discussion.
