Sticking my neck out.

I’m going to make a prediction for the 2012 Presidential Election.  Wishful thinking?  Maybe, but I still would bet that I’m a damn sight closer than the 5 Republicans predicting a Romney landslide in this article.

So, here’s my prediction: Obama wins reelection with 281 Electors to Romney’s 257.

And here’s the Flat Earth Society’s prediction map:  Romney wins the election with 359 Electors to Obama’s 179.

We’ll find out who’s closer on Tuesday.

See ya at the voting booth…

I voted yesterday. :)

Cool. I'm waiting for Tuesday just because I'm OCD about it.

We'll be watching with great interest from north of the border. Will miss all those borderline-insane attack ads, though. Whatever will the news hounds do with themselves once the campaign is over?

Lisa Shafer said...

I had TIME yesterday. Tuesday will be rushed. Plus, the line was short on Friday. :)

Carmi - that's the one benefit of being in a state where the outcome is a given. My TV watching is free and clear of those presidential attack ads. We have a few hotly contested local races with those ads, but none of the presidential ones.

I'm still waiting to vote, Max.

While many are obsessed with the horrible GOP and the slightly less horrible Democratic alternative, I've grown to wonder why we never get a better alternative.

I'm voting for Jill Stein, unless I can get some people in safe states to vote for her in a trade for my Ohio vote for Obama.

You must be right because my dear husband has been saying the same thing for months.

Frankly, I will just be glad when it is all over.

Thunder - it's a deal. I'm in Utah, I'm free to vote for anybody because Romney is stronger here than any other state (sooopries, sooooprise). I was going to vote for Rocky Anderson, ex-mayor of Salt Lake City, but I'd be happy to vote for Jill Stein instead.
Even though my presidential vote is impotent here, I still have to go out and vote, there are a couple local elections, including US Congress, that are close. Gotta do my part.
I also agree 100% that we need better alternatives. The American public has to get over this idea of Democrat or Republican, and start seriously looking at the independent parties.
