There are 10 weeks (70 days) until Election Day. In today's round up of the presidential race, the score is Obama 258, Romney 191. Obama is down 7 electoral votes from last week (down Michigan's 16 up Colorado's 9) , while Romney is down 29 (Florida). This just means that those states have moved from being in either the blue or red category and have become yellow (undecided).
It takes 270 electoral votes to be elected. This week Iowa (6), Florida (29), North Carolina (15), Virginia (13), Michigan (16) and Wisconsin (10) are "too close to call."
