I'm doing my best to help Michigan go O.

I know many people where I work are voting for Obama. I think we have a vested interest in Tesla Motors... that probably helps.

NYTimes lists it as leaning towards Obama, but it's not a solid sell there yet. But maybe they're just not willing to jump to conclusions because of the Romney ties there?

RCP has Michigan as O+4, 538 has it as O+5.6, both weighed down slightly by the tie poll which was likely an outlier when compared to everyone else's numbers.

MI and Pennsylvania have gone Democrat every cycle since 1988 (Bush vs Mondale). Somehow they get lumped into "battleground states" and the GOP makes some half-assed play for them each cycle (McCain did the same in '08) and the media runs stories about how Michigan or Pennsylvania looks close but, in reality, by the time they flip you've almost certainly flipped enough other states to win.

As for the NYT, I'm guessing they just have some polling threshold like +10 or more to move it from "Leans" to "Likely". They only have three levels of ratings on that map, Leans, Likely or Battleground. MI isn't a battleground but it's not as "sure" a lock as New York, IL or California.

The copy with all the pink arrows shows evidence for it not being an innocent panoramic shot (intentional manipulation within the copied areas) but I'll let folks decide that for themselves.
Sorry but no, you're just wrong. This is simply a botched panoramic shot. Likely with a camera that isn't very good at it, maybe some irregular moving by who was holding it and a lot of very very similar looking stuff so the camera has issues stitching it together.

You mean the guy laying down the pink arrows is wrong. I'll be the first to admit that it makes no "real" difference one way or the other aside from making me laugh.

Back to polling, a blurb backing up what I was saying earlier about OH/NV/WI:
Political Wire wrote:
While President Obama's average lead in Ohio is just 2.3 points, Mitt Romney doesn't lead in a single poll. In Nevada, Obama's edge is 2.5 points and Romney has led in just one poll this entire year. In Wisconsin, Romney trails by just 2.3 points but hasn't led in a single poll since August.

Harry Enten notes that "in only one in 150 of the state contests in the last three presidential elections was there an instance of a candidate winning a state where he didn't hold the edge in at least a single poll in the closing weeks of the campaign."

Nonsense, Sandy is a job creator! She's given jobs to hundreds of telecom and power industry employees, and like most successful businesspeople, is committed to not paying taxes, devastating our infrastructure, and shutting down the local government.

Unless your intention was to just randomly toss out labels, those aren't examples of the fallacy.
