Wow that's a low margin of error -- that makes me suspect there's issues with the sample - it would have to be huge or it would have to be very small to have an error rate so low ...
I think it will come down to whoever Romney chooses for his running mate at this point
In the 1960 Presidential race the official candidates were Nixon & Kennedy ... However 15 electoral votes went to a write-in candidate who had not even planned to run - it was just a "grassroots" sort of thing ...
Harry S Byrd (yup, brother of Adm Byrd) took ALL of Mississippi, most of Alabama, and one from Oklahoma!
I bet you didn't even know he existed!
I know I didn't - no one ever talks about him, that's a HUGE amount of electorals for a guy who never even showed up in any polling data that I've found
