For those secretly hoping that, no matter who won the White House, David Axelrod would have to cash in on his now infamous TV pledge to shave his mustache based on three particular states going red, your hope now rests on ... Minnesota, a state that Rasmussen didn't even have as a toss up, labeling it as leaning toward Obama in the days leading up to the election. Pennsylvania and Michigan have already been called for Obama, and, while not shocking, likely dispel the myth of any comfortable Romney win.
Don't let us down, Minnesota. You're our only hope.
