The Cook Report contributes to the latest obsession:
[T]he odds still favor the popular and electoral vote heading in the same direction, but the chances of a split like the one in 2000 are very real, along with the distinct possibility of ambiguity and vote-counting issues once again putting the outcome in question.
To that, Charlie Cook adds, "Ugh." I modestly share the speculative outlook, but not so much the ugh. After the indescribable horror of 2000, a Romney popular-vote victory losing to an Obama Electoral College victory would unmistakably represent a contemporary miracle--real divine-retribution stuff.
It's hard to imagine anything more pleasing than the right's howls of injustice that would follow a reelected President Obama via a W.-like minority win.
