Washington, April 15 (ANI): The United States President Barack Obama is leading the likely Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney by a significant margin in various US states.
The GOP had 188 electorate votes that were either firmly Republican or leaning Republican.
According to Politico, Obama has 242 electoral votes in Democratic states, leaving 104 electoral votes in states that were purely tossups.
A total of 270 votes are needed to win the presidential elections.
Colorado has long been a reliable GOP state, but an influx of young professionals and Hispanic voters led to Obama's victory in 2008, whereas Florida is the prime state for both campaigners.
Obama won the Florida elections in 2008, but the housing crisis, high unemployment and gas prices are still dogging him. Romney won the Florida primary in January, and has picked up endorsement of freshman senator.
In Iowa, Obama's victory in the state in 2008 gave him a launch pad, which is countered by Romney's two caucus campaigns.
New Hampshire, is Romney's vacation home. He won the 2012 primary big, but Obama peeled off the state in 2008 and has worked hard to keep it.
Nevada is a prime example of the economy's struggles, a point that can benefit Romney. A higher Mormon population helps Romney.
In North Carolina, Obama was the first Democrat to win North Carolina in 32 years and he again hopes to gain a high percentage of votes from newcomers and minorities.omney won the 2012 primary in Ohio and has support from big public figures. Obama has the organizing advantage, although the economy remains a sticking point, especially in the industrial northwest.
The analysis gives President Obama's team a lot more flexibility in terms of winning elections, though it is too early to make a conclusion. (ANI)
