And Nate Silver says Obama up to 91.4%. LoL.
0bamma gets 43% of the popular vote.
Jim Cramer is either Joking or high. I say Romney 288 Obama 250.
That must be a typo...628 total electors??? It's 538 total.
Also, Jim Cramer has Obama 440 and Romney 98, what is he smoking???
I’m glad Cramer isn’t managing my money.
There are ONLY two ways to go:
... or ...
After we win this election, its our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we dont forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay. Congress wont be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go. V. Jarrett
Great idea for a thread! Thanks!
>> James Pethokoukis: Romney 301, Obama 327. Not possible.
It’s just arithmetic, FRiend: add up the EV from all 57 states and it totals 628.
I tend to agree with Barone, its going to be Romney 315, Obama 223 or thereabouts.
It will be a Romney landslide and a humiliating defeat for Obummer.
Very possible if you include all 57 states.
Olde says: Romney-53%, Obama-46%, Other-1%
Dang! You said it first.
Yeah, you know the old saying, “even a blind tick occasionally finds a capillary”. Or something like that. :-)
Minimum - 277
McCain plus NH, FL, NC, VA, IA, WI, & CO
Expected - 311
Minimum plus OH, MN, & NV
High end - 347
Expected plus PA & MI

(Keep the Faith, my friends! We are the saviors of the Republic! Now and Forever!)
LonePalm, le Républicain du verre cassé (The Broken Glass Republican)
Looks like a transposition of the 2 and 3. Should probably read 301 - 237.
Might as well weigh in with my most optimistic scenario: 55%-45% Romney, 353-185
Check these predictions by the partisan MSM (most of the ones on this prediction page) and double check THEIR accuracy by tomorrow night!
