Considering that Romney needs disaffected long-term unemployed to switch to him for victory, this doesn't really make sense.
Whatever happens tomorrow, it's been interesting to see in this cycle how polls have joined analysts, newspapers, network news and cable news as "biased" sources of information. An inevitable turn of events, if regrettable. Now virtually nothing links the two different bubbles each side has created for itself.
Elections are decisive, though. So if nothing else it should be fascinating to watch the losing half of the country have reality intrude on the decisive wins they're predicting. I wouldn't want to guess how many times the word "fraud" will appear on RedState if Romney loses or DailyKos if Obama wins. But it'll be a lot.

Though I can definitely see why the Republicans want to maintain a show of strength since they are banking on major turnouts from their base to flip some of these prediction polls. Signs of weakness now may put their voters in apathy and they may stay home. The same can be said for the independent who are leaning romney.
Then again cracks are starting to appear with all the blame being thrown on Sandy killing momentum
I think 303-235 for electoral college and 3% popular vote edge for Obama. No matter what it should (finally!) be over tomorrow, which is fantastic in and of itself.
