Why Democrats have electoral advantage

David Gergen explains why historically Democrats have an advantage because states they typically win have more electoral votes. "The last five elections, there are 19 states that have gone Democratic in five straight elections. They amount to 243 electoral votes. There are 22 states that have gone Republican, but there are only 180 electoral votes," says Gergen.

Van Jones believes if the youth vote shrinks from 18% in 2008, Pres. Obama will be in trouble. "Who votes will tell us a lot about who will win," says John King about the voter demographic, which could determine the outcome if there are slight changes from what's expected.
