David Paleologos, director of Suffolk University’s Research Center said he has pulled his pollsters out of Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia as all three look set to go to Romney.
“We’ve already painted those red," Paleologos told Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly. “We’re not polling any of those states again. We’re focusing on the remaining states.”
This would be in line with Gravis Marketing's recent polls in North Carolina, Virginia, and Florida. In 2008 President Barack Obama won Virginia by 6.3%, Florida by 2.8%, and North Carolina by less then 1%.
The biggest advantage the president has is his different paths to victory. The president can lose these states and still win the election.
