    CU-Boulder prof's updated forecast still gives win to Mitt Romney - The Denver Post

    The professors -- Kenneth Bickers of CU's Boulder campus and Michael Berry of CU's Denver campus -- project that Romney will earn 330 of the total 538 Electoral College votes.

    "The economic fundamentals still suggest it's a difficult terrain for any incumbent to run for re-election," Bickers said in an interview.

    President Barack Obama is expected to receive 208 votes, which is down five from the initial prediction that the professors announced on Aug. 22.

    Bickers said that economic conditions continue to favor Romney, even though many polls are showing the president in the lead.

    Bickers recalled that incumbent Jimmy Carter led Ronald Reagan in the polls well into October during the 1980 election that Reagan ended up winning in a landslide.

    So in other words, Prof. Bickers is just flat out making crap up. From June onwards, Reagan was always well ahead of Carter in the polls.
