O Ye (Republicans) of Little Faith?

Mitt Romney continues to poll poorly in Ohio, and it’s hard to see how he threads the needle to 270 electoral votes without it.

Here’s the New York Times today:

To give a sense of Mr. Romney’s challenge: he could win Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina and Virginia — all carried by Mr. Obama in 2008 — and still fall short without Ohio and its 18 electoral votes.

This is what happens when the bulk of your support is clustered in Southern states and you pursue a “get out the white vote” strategy to victory. It may still work. He’s got the money, obviously. But if I were a Republican right now, doubt would be infecting my faith.
