A Scenario No One Is Discussing

An interesting scenario is suddenly becoming quite plausible: one where Romney wins the popular vote but loses the electoral college. Same as in 2000, but with the parties flipped.

This could happen if Romney wins big in places like the South but loses a lot of swing states by close margins. Right now, the national polls are essentially neck-and-neck, but many of the swing states show an edge for Obama.

One wonders how vocal Democrats will continue to be about ending the electoral collage if this plays out.

For those fretting about the polls, there's an interesting piece on Da Tech Guy's Blog. Sampling has become a big controversy, for those paying attention.
