By varying margins, nine separate polling analysts all have Obama winning in the Electoral College
The Denver Post is out with a COLLECTION of nine prospective electoral maps of the nation, each of them the work of polling analysts who expect that President Obama will win the race for electoral votes.
The projections in this collection range from 281 electoral votes for Obama to 332. He needs 270 to win the election.

The nine predictions…agree on a few swing states: Romney will win North Carolina; Obama will win Nevada, Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire. They differ on Colorado, Virginia and Florida, however.
If it turns out that they’re all correct in predicting Nevada, Ohio, Iowa and New Hampshire for Obama, Romney’s chances of eeking out a victory will range from slim to none.
The nine sources of these projections are Drew Linzer of Emory University, Josh Putnam of Davidson College, Sam Wang of Princeton University, Nate Silver of The New York Times, Scott Elliott, a conservative analyst for Election Projection, the political Web site Real Clear Politics, the liberal Web site Talking Points Memo, the team of Jay DeSart of Utah Valley University and Thomas Holbrook of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and Andrew Tanenbaum of Vrije Universiteit of the Netherlands.
