    Obama wins with 304
    Mitt wins the popular vote (low turnout in strong Dem states like NY, NJ, Ct)
    All NJ house races stay as is as does out lone senate race. Control of the house and senate is unchanged.

    We have 2 public questions, both fail because of low turnout and a distrust at bonding more money.

    I said you need to strive to better than everyone else. I didn't say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That's what character is. It's in the try.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Well....let's give it a shot...

    1 & 2. Obama takes the popular vote 51-48(1% for other candidates), and takes the Electoral College 308-230.

    3. Local House races(and I'll encompass all of WNY for this): Higgins goes back, as does Slaughter and Hochul(though those two races will be close ones, Collins-Hochul specifically). Reed(in the Southern Tier)gets re-elected too.

    4. Kirsten gets another 6 years in the Senate.

    5. The only amendment I'm aware of(where I live)is a proposal to bring my town's total number of councilmembers back to 4 from the current 3. Won't pass, IMO.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Extremely Optimistic
    331- 207 Mitt

    Realistic
    273- 265 Mitt

    Mitt wins the popular vote.

    Just so you know if Romney wins I'll be posting a gloating thread within minutes. If he loses I'll avoid this place for a few weeks.

    Ain't no way Romney wins, unless they can pull off another 2000 style coup of the govt. And imho that's not beyond the real of plausibility.

    So you are saying that Obama will still be the 44th President of the United States come Wednesday. Good call

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Who wins the Electoral College? Obama
    Total Numbers? does it matter?
    Who wins the Popular? Obama
    Local House Race? incumbent
    Local Senate Race? incumbent
    Local Amendments? all defeated

    as a sidenote: all the republicans needed to run to beat Obama was a ham sandwich. I always felt that Mitt was a worse option then a Ham Sandwich... Tuesday will prove me right.

    Predicted Bills Record 5-11
    Actual Bills Record 6-10
    Prognostication Record 7-9


    You know what really sucks? We're now approaching a level of sustained craptitude not seen in the NFL since the pre-Plumber Cardinals or pre-Sanders Lions. Yeah... being a Bills fan really sucks right now.

    The only primary candidate more than a ham sandwich was Huntsman and he never had a shot. The GOP brought this upon themselves.

    I didn't say that is who I want to win, but who will actually win.

    Kind of like the Bills game yesterday. I wanted Buffalo to win, but I didn't think they had a great chance.
