Polling doesn't support your statements.
It's extremely close; and ironically, it's Obama who has had to play catch-up to make it so, not Romney.
Factoid: no cadidate at over 50% in the Gallup Poll a week out of the election has EVER lost.
A week ago, Romney was over 50%...
The election was never really THAT close. It was closer then it would have been but Mitt didn't even come close to taking back the states needed to win.
