On, Wisconsin

10:55 am ET

In the wake of New York Times and Politico stories suggesting that the electoral college math still favors the incumbent, the Romney campaign Sunday released a new TV ad for Wisconsin.

Once upon a time, the Romney campaign dreamed of putting New Jersey, New Mexico, and Oregon in play. Now, just a few months later, they are on the precipice of giving up on Michigan and Pennsylvania, and they are still behind in Ohio.

So using money to try to make Paul Ryan’s Wisconsin competitve is sensible, maybe essential. Right now, Romney-Ryan has fewer electoral college paths than Kerry-Edwards did at this point in 2004.

There is still plenty of time to change things, but as a snapshot of where we are today, that is a bit grim.
