Where Angles Fear to Tread

Electoral Math(s)

Ohio is called for Trump (won by Obama in 2012) it is the the first swing state to declare as a change. So we start to look at the electoral maths (or math for our cousins from the US).

Obama won by 126, so if Trump win 63 it will be a tie.

Ohio is 18, the Florida is 29 (Trump is a long way ahead here with 99% counted), this means he needs to find another 16 electoral college votes without losing any of Romney’s states. Where can he can get them from?

Obtuse Angle and I are considering Nevada, Minnesota and Wisconsin but still far too early to call any of these. It’s going to be a long nervous night.
