Where to get at least 270 electoral college votes needed to re-elect Democratic presidential Barack Obama? This is a great task given to Obama campaign General Manager Jim Messina. It will test Messina’s efficiency and effectiveness as a campaign manager.
According to the strategic campaign plan Messina designed, the 270 “electors” to give the “Majority” votes of 270 to Obama are found in the following states as follows:
According to the plan, any of these five routes will be able to give the "Majority” votes of 270 out of the 538 Electoral College votes.
The Messina formula is very interesting to watch and follow through as implemented. Considering the qualities of the GOP candidates and the soundness of their respective campaigns, the Messina strategy is far better than that of the other side of the fence. It shows where the numbers game must be played well in order to re-elect Obama for another term.
Candidate Obama is observed strong among American voters and so with the Latinos. Hopefully some of the 270 electors will come from these sectors of the American electorate.
