Both Vodkapundit and AoSHQ are weighing in the apparent news that Pennsylvania is getting farther and farther away from the Democrats. I bring this up not because I disagree with that assessment, but because I wanted to point something out: individual state assessments do not exist in a vacuum. It is very difficult to envision a situation where PA is tilting to the Republicans, but FL, NC, & VA are still in play’ for that matter, it is impossible to envision a situation where PA is truly in play and IA, NH, MI, OH, & WI are not.
This does not mean that the GOP candidate is a shoo-in. It does mean that the predictions of pundits who are relying too heavily on demographic trends should probably be taken with a grain of salt. Or the whole shaker.
