Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Romney wins Kansas

Romney wins Kansas

Over at MSNBC, political analysts (err, democratic activists) have already called Ohio, Virginia and Iowa for President Obama.

Inspired by their courage, I've decided to call Kansas. Only, I'm going to use actual facts instead of wishful thinking in my analysis.

First, there's this nugget:  As of today Republicans have a 33,000 early vote lead over Democrats in Kansas.

And then there's this: There are more Republican and unaffiliated voters in Kansas today than there were in 2008, according to the Secretary of State's Office, and there are 45,000 less Democrats. Republican registrations increased by over 11,000 to 782,161 people - that's nearly 45 percent of the state's voter totals. Unaffiliated registrations reached 508,204, an increase of more than 25,000 since 2008. Unaffiliated voters now make up 29 percent of the state's voters.

So yeah, Vanna. Put 6 electoral college votes on the board for Romney.
