Obama campaign senior strategist David Axelrod went on MSNBC this morning to project an air of confidence about Team Obama's re-election chances amid what might be an expanding battleground map.

In response to a question from Joe Scarborough on recent polls in Michigan, Minnesota and Pennsylvania showing Mitt Romney within 3-4 points of President Obama, Axelrod said, "with all due respect to the polls out there, they're all over the map. I can only rely rely on the information that I have, that I count on - that is, solid research."

"I will come on Morning Joe and I will shave off my mustache of 40 years if we lose any of those three states," Axelrod said.
