Tad Devine says Obama could ‘get close to 350 electoral votes’September 29th, 2012 at 2:31 pm by Ted Nesi under Nesi's Notes, On the Main Site
Speaking of Tad Devine, the prominent Democratic operative from Providence I mentioned in today’s Saturday Morning Post, he’s quoted in a new Politico story on how the Electoral College map is looking for Obama:
Democratic strategist Tad Devine thinks Obama could win an Electoral College blowout if Romney doesn’t turn his campaign around in the first debate this Wednesday in Denver.
“He’s in a position to get close to 350 electoral votes, without a doubt,” said Devine, who played key roles for Al Gore in 2000 and John Kerry in 2004. “The president and his campaign successfully identified states where they could beat Romney, set out to define Romney in those places and did so well through the course of the spring and summer.”
“It ain’t pretty for Romney right now,” Devine added. “He’s in a precarious position.”
Though I suppose Tad would say that, wouldn’t he?
