    I have an ugly feeling about this.

    I think Rom wins both the majority vote and EC by a very very small margin -- less than 1% and less than 5 seats.

    I see court and recount activities for another 6 weeks thereafter.

    In a time when the US needs to get its **** together, I see the exact opposite happening.

    I'm rooting for a tie.

    I would laugh so hard if that happened, and also stay up all night watching coverage and thinking up scenarios of what could be.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Obama wins the Electoral College 303-235. I also think he'll win the popular by a very small margin, possibly less than a percentage point.

    Of the Battlegrond states, I think Obama wins NV, CO, WI, MI, OH, PA, IA, NH and VA. Romney wins NC and FL. Virginia going blue early in the evening will all but seal Romney's fate.

    Local House Race: I'll take Kevin Boyd over incumbent Marlin Stutzman... People locally here can't stand Stutzman... He only took the seat due to Mark Souder resigning due to a sex scandal.
    Local Senate Race: Joe Donnelly over Richard Mourdock... Mourdock killed his campaign with his rape pregnancy "God intended it to happen" comment. Until then, it was a close race.
    Local Amendments: Only things on my ballot are to retain judges, all of which I will personally vote no for.

    -Bill

    All of you predicting an Obama win over Romney are over-estimating the American public.... I mean they might live to fight another day but they could just as easily ask for more neo-con ****ups.

    Not even! The only way Romney wins is for the Repugs to steal it again. And they're working very hard at it again, especially in Ohio and Florida.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Obama 281-257

    (I have Obama winning Pa, Ohio, Iowa, Nevada, Wisc, NH and Romney taking Va, NC, Fla, Colo. Romney alos picks up the 1 EV from Neb that Obama won in 2008)

    The only states I can see a reversal is Virginia going to Obama and NH going to Romney



    Romney wins popular vote by 1%

    Dems pick up 1 seat in the Senate and 12 in the House

    Either way...if this republic could survive Bush...it can survive anybody.

    Either one of these candidates are light years ahead of him.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Electoral vote will be 303-235. Only Florida goes to Romney.

    The popular vote will be very close - within 1%.

    Local races - Congress is close. I will go with what I hope for and say Hochul beats Collins, but it won't be decided for weeks.

    Just for the record, Our founder, Ted P, felt that whomever followed Bush would be a one-termer.

    He was usually right at predicting elections.

    Re: 2012 Election Prediction Thread

    Just came back from our "field trip" to the polling booth. My students helped me fill out my ballot. (I almost missed a race, heh heh) Given the choices available and the fact that Florida is a swing state, I voted Romney. This is a vote against Obama, as I don't expect Romney to take office or be our next president. As to what will happen tonight, there are several states where voting could be a mess, including Ohio, Pennsylvania and Florida, all swing states. So I think either Romney will win, or they won't be able to determine the outcome.

    I did finally see a sign for Obama though. It looked lonely.

    Romney wins the electoral by a slim margin. Obama wins the popular by a slim margin. Chaos ensues.

    Let's see...Obama was sick and won't make it thru his term...
    Neither Obama nor Romney will be on the ballot...
    And now, you voted Romney...

    I'm making the call here before CNN, MSNBC or anyone else. Obama will win. My source? Discopatti's record...

    Get your official predictions in now, and let's say 10K ZB's to the zoner who gets closest on the EC prediction just to have fun with it?
