What's great HD also okay no indications the race for the White House is heating up.
This map behind me is from real clear politics dot com it takes all the polling and puts it all together.
It estimates right now President Obama on the electoral map 221.
Votes governor Mitt Romney won 91 your toss ups -- little 126 remember 270 is your magic number to win at all.
What is interesting on this map for the states in yellow.
The undecided -- increase since the last time this polling was done.
Nevada take note of that state of Wisconsin Paul Ryan state of Michigan.
That's where governor Mitt Romney grew up and also the state of New Hampshire -- governor Romney's been spending a lot of time what is all of this mean right now.
Ed Rollins served as national campaign director for the Reagan reelection team in 1984.
Veteran of several presidential campaigns Fox News contributor -- are you doing great thank you to -- 1 morning to USC your iPad over there are so I don't even do.
In your home town and doing my homework what does that tell you over there that what it tells me is -- fourteen states that there about the selection and Romney is now -- a position where he can win this thing he's got to kind of run.
On the board a little bit.
He doesn't -- -- as Ohio obviously it's impossible to do seventy.
But the numbers are looking good there close as I said on the show several weeks -- State polls are always about three of weeks after the national people's -- -- -- -- -- a little bit like a couple of points you make it dead even race that probably won't change much between now and Election Day because the electorate is polarized there's just not many undecided voters -- down to pay anywhere from 58.
Percent of the electorate that's really undecided and many of them -- a -- so you're not gonna move Obama voters away from him no matter what and you knock him necessary move the Romney.
Voters that are now become very solidifying is that in the -- it seems to suggest that that is different from other election while we're down we're down a very polarized electorate I mean people basically feel very strongly and very passionately about candidates and this particular race and I think.
A lot of the Romney is an anti Obama vote and that's not gonna change in and they get to like Romney more and more and Ryan is -- -- helped the ticket measurably.
And and it's it's you know it is one of these things even if you make a minor mistake even if you have a great convention just not -- move numbers -- dramatically.
But what you use -- -- enough states in play there for Romney to win it -- enough there is seeing need to run the table not -- does windows need to of the fourteen he probably has to win seven or eight of those states obviously again.
He doesn't win Florida he doesn't win Ohio the numbers aren't there.
What's intriguing is what's happening in Wisconsin is all Paul -- -- -- when Paul Ryan it's a state that IBC would have been on the list to begin with but Ryan has clearly made it competitive.
He's one really represents 18 of the state he's a very very popular person there.
And my sense is he's clearly put into the potential win column and in Florida the -- got -- -- -- -- President Obama have five point leads from two weeks ago.
It's now within.
-- -- -- Courtney is an interesting thing is when you sit down the operatives who run these states he and you got to see like -- nine gubernatorial races this is -- a national election easier statewide.
They know exactly -- they have to go exactly the counties in the cities where they have to get certain votes and you could put side by side the two the two.
People running these campaigns.
In order Ohio and they contain exactly what their goals are.
Announced question going on me and when he's talked to them I would imagine they say it's still about the economy is still about jobs after you went to the bank bail out -- went to the auto bailout of the largest stimulus plan.
There's there's -- -- still unemployment above eight presents you just not moving those Obama voters away from him those those that are dedicated.
I'm gonna stay there till the bitter -- and I think does no good news ahead for the president between now on Election Day on the economic front.
And I think that 45%.
That I say -- still out there may shift in the end it just make the difference between India.
He victory here just look at this Electoral College count now that that's a shifted toward him -- electoral votes it just it -- I'm in the bank today but you know this is really 36 states don't matter and they matter obviously in the sense that there.
There are important and we want to make you go vote.
But you know California New York Oregon Texas is on our side.
And you battle you're battling on these these 910 -- so those folks and 36 states probably are not gonna see a lot of everywhere not to see a lot of advertising welcome and that's welcome and they're not the name I know presidential campaign is going on other that walks Fox News we've covered all.
The if they're big state for fundraising as Texas and California are you may see an occasional visit as we saw the president states and that.
In New York again last night forcing him my pleasure Ed Rollins -- sir thank you.
