Ron Paul Factor in the Swing States

Yes. Putting aside the issue of vote fraud for the moment, the election will be won or lost in the 11 battleground swing states which account for 146 electoral votes. Latest polling indicates that Obama is still leading Romney by an average of of just one half of one percent (0.5%). However, the electoral vote breakdown of these states currently weighs in with 46 going to Romney vs. 100 going to Obama. Now take into account that in the recent primaries and caucuses held in these swing states Ron Paul garnered about 2% of the total number of votes cast in these states in the 2008 election. This means that the Ron Paul vote will be a decisive factor in the outcome and we all know who these voters will not be pulling the lever for in the voting booth.
