Now it is time for a look at who is talking and this morning.
Karl Rove and Joseph Trippi are talking about the conventions.
And more specifically that convention bounce rove and -- breaking down the current standings and whether Mitt Romney -- or should expect to see any movement in the polls.
After the Republican National Convention last week.
Usually the party that's out of power in the presidency gets the non incumbent party gets about a five point.
-- that's the average I'd expect something like death from your problem is we're not going to be able to see it.
I don't think not completely because as you said that we're here at the Democratic Convention that's the start that the pendulum swinging the other way and you know -- I think.
Later on what we'll have to see how big the gap is but I think -- The -- itself might be man might be masked by how close these conventions are -- I think this it in -- modern -- only the second time we've had the conventions back to back and I agree with -- we're likely to see the -- to the -- sort of mitigated by that we ought to take a look at the Gallup poll and others a couple of weeks before the Republican dimension and take a look at -- a couple of weeks of the Democratic Convention we'll see how they -- -- respective party bounces settle out.
-- right bounce aside let's take a look at this angle Joseph Trippi and Karl Rove also analyzing the latest elect -- map.
Highlighting some shifting over the last few weeks Karl Rove saying that there are a few ways that Romney can win -- of the best.
We have a minor change to Barack Obama's advantage Connecticut was seven electoral votes goes from lean Obama -- solid Obama but -- the good news -- there.
Two states Nevada with six and Michigan -- sixteen to shift from lean Obama to toss -- We now have.
Nine states with a 122 electoral votes that are now toss that this is -- largest number of tossup states.
We've had since we began tracking in April largest number of Electoral College votes as well.
Of those changes what's most important job.
-- -- -- Mean suddenly there's a lot of different ways for Mitt Romney to make it we've been talking for weeks about the 321 strategy.
But now you can lose a state like Virginia one of -- 23.
We thought Indiana North Carolina and Virginia that he asked a winner we thought he had to win that.
To have a shot you can you can lose one of those states now.
There because so many states have gone and a -- -- Nevada Michigan Wisconsin those three states she went numb and you can start to lose some of the 321 states which is.
Something the Obama campaign could not have possibly been thinking about this late in the game.
