Oh absolutely I think right now -- claims that Obama can stop Romney today.
And all the way down if he stops Romney in Virginia this race is over and I think that's why you see both of these campaigns unless they can swapped out -- was.
Wisconsin they have -- DSE two out of anybody has -- unless there's no one state thing that is indispensable if in Virginia I do think is gonna be a battleground right down to the end of Joe's right.
If he -- Robby -- -- one Virginia.
If he wins Iowa and Wisconsin both of which are risk today new poll show the race and at Wisconsin dead even.
That was the back and forth between the best do -- low end.
Political professional analysis on television a Democrat Joseph Trippi.
And Republican Karl Rove on special report with Bret Baier.
And this is power play on Chris -- -- and what those were talking about last night.
What we call the 321 strategy the very fact that we're Mitt Romney to win the presidency he's got to do it's it's a three step dance the first is he's got to win back.
Three states that are traditionally Republican that felt Barack Obama that Indiana that's North Carolina.
And that's Virginia needs to take those back then he's got to win the -- swing states the big swing states that's Ohio and that's Florida then -- one in this is the -- one.
He's got to -- a traditionally blue state to read could be Iowa could be Wisconsin could be Pennsylvania but he needs one more to get done.
And it is it is the commanding narrative for now this electoral process work.
-- we're gonna talk about that.
We're gonna talk about what the heck happened in Arkansas and Kentucky.
With their primaries last night.
And how that reflects on president Obama's ability to hold a decent number.
Blue collar -- white voters across the country.
And we're gonna talk about this question.
Is America ready to have a businessman as a president.
Never have before.
Is now the time so we'll talk about those things helping us talk about those things pray god is Charles hurt he's a columnist -- The Washington Times.
He is a good people and as as always we stipulate pro American.
He's a -- -- Virginian and east Virginia.
Good not as good as west Virginian but good.
And the question for you brother Kurt is this.
Kim Romney pull off this 321.
I think I -- hole.
Heartedly agree that if if Romney is is in -- -- fighting for Virginia or North Carolina or -- it or Indiana if it's even if in doubt later in the summer.
He's in big trouble because I -- there's been no way he can pull -- off.
Getting those states back which really should not be heavy lift if you think about it.
But I also think they've done you know I think that I think it you know and I've -- this before and -- I often get ridiculed for -- -- I think that.
But it but but you know I really increasingly believe that we could be looking at a situation where none of these states we're talking about right now.
He pulls it where Romney is able to pull away in all of these states in a very big way I.
I think these polls today they're they they're -- -- that everything is going.
Then this is not a attributed to Romney is certainly I -- ever I think I've yet to hear you give any tributes to their brownies -- go -- I've converted I I liked him I think this.
I did before I liked it strange new found respect citizenry is -- term in politics you.
But but yeah but.
It is amazing the a ray of things that are not -- president Obama's way and we and X-Factor honestly do believe that we can be looking and -- however many months away from now.
At a situation where the entire map.
Is his phone away from me from President Obama and I know you professional.
Prognosticators inside the beltway don't wanna we would never wanted it hit that sort of thing now.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- These are animals are very important -- edit everybody's got a good but covering is a complicated process yes especially here in much quite so but.
If you look at the big picture.
You know one of the things it did that sort of dot do that George W Bush's campaign through their darkest days in 2004 suspect that you could point to.
Groups of people and and and significant individuals who had voted.
Who did who voted for gore 2000 and he switched and and decided to support.
-- election 2004 it seemed sort of outlandish just to those of us -- covering it because you know do in a inside Washington that it turned vociferously against George W.
But I asked if there was ever really cheerful -- right but I shoot today right do you know any.
Anybody who didn't vote for president -- Barack Obama in 2008 he's gonna -- -- this time.
Sure -- I didn't.
They come on here all the time what you're talking about this is someone that didn't know didn't vote for -- -- didn't vote for Obama you know Hilda.
Keep the presidents -- acknowledges that his margins will be small he -- -- is said -- his own supporters this is going to be a lot closer.
Yes and and I would argue that it -- that if if Republicans and picked aim a better candidate in 2008 if Republicans -- had had run a better campaign of John McCain can run a better campaign.
It brought about was not he ran a brilliant campaign -- he was not unbeatable in 2000.
But Obama on the other hand.
It is pulling away in Pennsylvania looks like that string of polls now show that he's doing very well and has made the Republicans always like to tell themselves they're going to win Pennsylvania it is that they don't condone it but they never do not since nineteen and 88.
But when we look at the rest of the map.
Wisconsin's and play certainly Iowa seems to be very much invite so you obviously Romney had it if this trend line as you say were continue -- have a pretty decent shot -- this.
Yes I did an and I -- and well I'll admit I was totally wrong during the primary because I didn't think that we would be sitting here having.
This conversation as if Republicans went with -- -- I didn't think you'd be doing but he's keeping his head down he's not making stupid mistakes.
He's -- every time the administration tries to talk about some social issue.
You know contraception and gay marriage or whatever he just brings -- right back the economy he -- he does not lose focus he's got an admirable job of of not letting them get it not letting them get him off off -- single game.
Charley Reese says this Charles -- I don't know I call you tried to seem like you should be Charlie I don't know how you prefer to be called but I like this region -- strategy makes a lot of sense.
It's possible -- -- to pull it off he doesn't need to worry about protecting territory like Obama well that's probably true Obama would like to threaten him in Arizona would like to threaten him in Virginia and some places like that but I think writ large that's true all for jury points this out Chris historically governor has not won office without the support of the state he was governor of why don't you bring up the poll numbers in Massachusetts he's not gonna city was governor there's no one.
Cares to -- Massachusetts because it is not going to vote for a Republican.
Quite possibly ever again -- the United States -- be long into antiquity before Massachusetts -- for Republican.
Well they voted for Mitt Romney however many years ago that was that was statewide race -- was Mitt Romney two point okay not Mitt Romney three point right.
So but -- that it is.
Don't know why we.
It if the economy remains as horrible as it is it is today.
And I and I and and I gather and -- -- delighted that in certain states that it appears it.
Did it may be doing better.
And that could be to the advantage of President Obama but it.
It's it's like we -- -- didn't -- -- conceptualize ideas that you could have a landslide.
Ever again well I think -- and and and and honestly I.
I think it's moved mostly because people like you and me are are desperate to sort of keep this thing -- we want -- Now wait a minute drive while that doesn't do anything will get via hard core Mets -- -- this wrong Chris no Republican would have wanted to designated.
I -- point -- that was Charlie -- present that's not me.
