#USElections: Will it all come down to one Romney OpEd back in 2008?

If you didn’t get to see our US Politics panel that’s been bumping along in the background for six or seven weeks, last night’s is well worth the watch. See also:

– Dante Scala on just how knife edge the race is in New Hampshire.

– Nick Cull talks about how despite the tightness of the race, the betting money is going Obama’s way

– How the new modeling combining poll ratings with other economic factors has begun to replace the wise old operator as a reliable witness for how the campaign is going…

– And Mel wonders if Romney loses will it come back to one statement contra Obama’s bailout of the US Car industry made back in 2009 and the stubborn reluctance of Ohio to tip in his favour?

Next Friday is the last of our series. We’ll asking the panel to take a summative view of the campaign and to play out some set scenarios. At 11pm it’s a bit late our time, but well worth tuning.

I’ve not finalised plans for election day itself. But it is possible that we could run a long hangout after #DigitalLunch that day (which is on investing in social innovation).

It would be great to get more of our US readers into Google Plus so you can actually participate on the day itself, by sending in your pictures, videos and stories from wherever it you are that day.

If you are interested in taking part, then please send an email to: mick.fealty@gmail.com? If there’s enough interest we’ll have a planning hangout at some point in the next week. More later…
