And poll shows President Obama and Mitt Romney in a dead heat in Ohio with both candidates tied at 48%.
-- got it right there is Scott Rasmussen gave it to us a minute ago but does either candidate even need to win Ohio to win the election doctor -- hilarious Apatow.
Joins us live from Virginia good -- -- Larry.
Good morning states.
OK I know you've got and -- -- -- all hot out you've got your crystal ball you got your super computer you figured a couple of ways where each can win without Ohio let's start with the president United States.
That's right we don't want Ohio to get a swollen ego -- and they are not absolutely essential under all scenario is either can't.
-- take the president first.
If he loses Ohio.
He can still win then I think you've got a map to show we do if he wins a tough state for him which is Colorado the other states are more doable Iowa Nevada New Hampshire.
Those are swing states they can go either way but let's say he wins all those he has to power to victory in Colorado.
He can just get over the 270 mark with that that's how he does -- okay how would Mitt Romney win without Ohio.
That -- actually has a couple of scenarios they are four total toss ups and our view.
And New Hampshire.
And I might even throw in Iowa and -- Iowa's getting a lot closer so you got those five total toss ups.
A -- would have to win Virginia.
And Colorado both of which are very doable for him.
Wisconsin which is becoming more doable it's getting closer there.
And then he could win either New Hampshire or Iowa he'd end up at 271 or 273.
All without Ohio -- There's also kind of a doomsday scenario where it would be a -- -- you need to sanity.
But if you both wind up with 269 then what happens.
Well it would go to -- represented if you call it dooms day Steve I call it good for my business.
So you know why don't think it's necessarily a bad thing right because it would there would be all kinds of chaos and we thrive in chaos but in 269 to 269 essentially.
Give Obama all those northern states so Wisconsin Ohio New Hampshire but -- Iowa and Nevada.
Two are running in addition to his -- all the ones we think he's going to -- And in the three southern states -- to 69 to 69.
It goes to the House of Representatives and Romney wins because Republicans are going to control -- by our count at least 29 of the fifty house delegations each house delegation has one vote.
In the critical vote to elect the next president.
And then does this senate pick the vice president.
Indeed if there's -- 260 guided his sixty -- tying it goes to the senate.
If the Democrats hold the senate even admitted -- fifty.
Guess who gets to break the tie vote as the incumbent vice president when it comes up in his favor that's right Joseph Biden.
He Romney Biden administration will be born and it's a -- has that ever happened in history.
Well we've we've had its start of the house representatives sub back and 1824.
It went to the house represented himself war.
John Quincy Adams and of course in the great -- of 18100 between Jefferson and and Aaron Burr it went to the House of Representatives and we know that ended for -- them ultimately.
All right Larry zapatero a genius when it comes to this kind of stuff sir thank you very much.
Thank you so much.
