George Will, not a fan of Romney, yesterday predicted a Romney landslide. Go here to view the video. Will brought up a point in regard to Minnesota that I have failed to consider. Marriage is on the ballot there. The attempt to pass an amendment banning same sex marriage, according to the most recent poll, is ahead by one, 48-47 according to the latest Star Tribune poll. The amendment needs to reach 50 to pass. The Star Tribune tends to underestimate conservative and Republican strength, and historically amendments banning same sex marriage do several points better on election day than the polls indicate. This could bring out enough pro-Romney voters to put Minnesota into the Republican column for President for the first time in four decades. If it does, Romney, assuming he wins Virginia, Florida and Colorado, only needs New Hampshire, Iowa or Nevada to be the next president. Interesting.
