George Will predicts 321-217 Romney landslide

On this weekends broadcast of This Week with George Stephanopoulos on ABC, Will revealed his prediction and added a bonus surprise by saying traditional Democratic state Minnesota would go for Romney as well.
I’m projecting Minnesota to go for Romney, Will said. Its the only state that’s voted democratic in nine consecutive elections, but this year, there’s marriage amendment on the ballot that will bring out the evangelicals and I think could make the difference.

Will is not someone to say something like this unless he has a good reason.
Funny how NONE are predicting a landslide for Zer0.
Not even close.
The polls coming out right now are garbage. They do not reflect what I’m seeing out here where “the rubber meets the road.” I live in one of the ‘RAT strongholds in Arizona. It doesn’t look good for Barry.
George Will frequently upsets conservatives by being too critical of Republican candidates and Republican campaigns.
It is not like Will to be a cheerleader.
this is VERY good news!
Reminds me of the 1980 election which was supposed to be so close.
Beltway Will jumps on the bandwagon after Barone and a few more went out ahead of him.
Will and Barone have stuck their necks out. If they don’t temper these predictions in the next day or so (”I’ve seen reports of increased Obama support ...”), it will be interesting to see if they are close. 321 EVs does seem to be pushing it, unless the polls are really off, including Rasmussen.
Reminds me of the talk about how people were shocked that Nixon won a landslide in 1972, because nobody ever said that they voted for him.
No, Will is not a cheerleader. He is very, very, very well connected, and he does not shoot from the hip.
Gallup's next poll should be interesting they had Romney up by 6 or 7% last Monday I think.
2012 is not 1972. The political landscape has changed far too much in the negative I’m afraid.
That`s a strong statement coming from a guy like George Will. I can`t remember him making a direct prediction this bold. He`s seen something that`s giving over a good indication Romney is indeed drawing the inside straight the pundits said he needed.
Nixon 72. The only time I can recall not voting for an R at the top of the ticket. My vote went to Spock as a protest vote, did not like Nixon.
Michael Barone called it 315 for Romney.
Will predicted Obama 378 McCain 160. Pretty close.
On Election Day, go VOTE the CRIMINALS out!!!
huge, simply on the basis of Mr. Will always cognizant of appearing above the political fray. He is by NO means a republican cheerleading hack.
I think Obama may steal Ohio but lose Pennsylvania, stunning the insiders. If we add Michigan or Minnesota, that’s gravy. But PA puts Romney back in the same scenario he had if he had won Ohio, assuming he also takes Florida and Virginia. Then he’ll just need one more swing state like Colorado, Iowa or Wisconsin to get to 270.
