The shrinking battleground state map

MSNBC

President Obama might not need to travel as far and wide on the campaign trail to get re-elected.

NBC News released its latest battleground electoral map, and it looks a lot more scaled back than 2008. According to polling info, only seven states are complete toss-ups this go around: Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Colorado and Nevada. Obama won all these states in 2008 — not a good sign for Romney.

Team Obama plans to hold its first official rallies campaigning for a second term on Saturday, May 5 in Ohio and Virginia.
