Not good math for Mitty. He basically needs one of these three states and a clean sweep of the swing states still in play. Of those swing states, as best as I can tell Florida is leaning Romney, but Nevada, Colorado, and Virginia are statistical ties. Mitty needs all to win all three.
Nate has Mitty's chances at about 30 percent. Again the electoral college math is really tough. But don't let that get in the way of a good media daily national tracking poll horse race.
