    This graph has proven to be correct as that since Obama had more ways to win it increased his chances in this run for presidency. He won the swing state Nevada and its six electoral votes. Obama had made 10 trips to the state this year in hopes to persuade the voters, as did Romney. In a survey it said that 6 out of 10 Nevada voters said the economy was their main concern in the presidential elections.

    I know that the Romney campaign recruited many student volunteers to go door-to-door in hopes to influence voters. So both presidential candidates were striving to use some strategy with the swing states, especially Nevada.
