Battlegrounds: 'It's all about northern Virginia'

Editor's note: The 2012 presidential race is CNN Chief National Correspondent John King's seventh campaign. King is traveling through battleground states, where the election will be decided, to find the voters who will determine whether President Barack Obama gets a second term or if the country needs the change in direction that Mitt Romney represents.

Dumfries, Virginia (CNN) - Retiree Robert Stevens says he often turns off the television when the attack ads appear, and he hangs up the phone when it's a presidential campaign calling.

  1. November 6 is near

    Giving VA to Obama and OH to Romney will make Romney in the lead if he wins WI, IA, FL, NC (can still be fought on) and Obama wins the other toss-ups. Oops, am I giving a 269 scene? YES.

    In NVa we are aware of the flip flop'n wanna-bee Romoney's changing his rhetoric to fool which ever GOP crowd is herded in front of him. We have been watching Romoney expose himself as “severely conservative” and now know he's just severely delusional in his thinking all Americans are as dumb as the fox followers and tin foiled ditto-heads who believe everything their leaders feed them.

    It's going to be Fancy K Street Beltway Virginia versus Rural Smaller Town and Communities Virginia.
    Or Volvo SUV versus Pickup Truck!

    Ah, yes. We begin ... no, we have already started to see ... the beginning of media pandering for election night coverage. Election night coverage pandering started early this year, beginning with the "Mitt Romney Has The Momentum" (now debunked) meme.
