On the Eve of the RNC, A Tight Race

Days Until the Election: 74
Projected Popular Vote Total: Obama +1.1% (down 0.8% from last week)
Projected Electoral Vote Total: Obama 294, Romney 244 (Romney +29 from last week)

There is no doubt that over the past few weeks, since the announcement of Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney has been gaining momentum.

In 3 days, weather permitting, the Republican National Convention will begin.  It is a star-studded event, whose speakers are highlighted in my earlier post.  It will be carefully scripted and messaged and put together well,  Mitt Romney should get a boost.

There is a decent possibility, perhaps even a probability, that Mitt Romney will be leading following the RNC (the second of my 7 key events in the race.)  What happens after that at the DNC will set the trajectory going into the debates.

Stay tuned over the next week, the next chapter of Presidential history is well underway.
