Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Fortunately, the biggest impacts are mostly in states that are likely to go for Obama by sizable margins. But Pennsylvania, especially Philadelphia, might have a lower turnout from the poor that otherwise would have been expected. Pennsylvania and New Hampshire are #s 7 and 8, respectively in Nate Silvers list of tipping point states.

We can hope that any such effect will be overwhelmed by the negative effects the storm's arrival are having on the Romney campaign, due largely to his past advocacy of eliminating or privatizing FEMA and claims that 'we' can't afford to have the government pay for disaster clean up.
