    Okay, here's your chance to place your predictions. Ground rules:

    1. Predict what you think will actually happen, not what you want to happen.
    2. Feel free to change your predictions as conditions merit

    And that's it. I'll go first:

    Obama 300 EV

    Obama 303-

    Takes every state he did in 2008 EXCEPT FL, IN and NC.

    We'll be up all night waiting for VA and CO, but Obama will win them.

    Libberhoids jerking off in anticipation of the impossible.

    President Romney will win in a landslide, polesmokers.

    Get fucking used to it.

    Next?

    I'm on board with this with the potential for Obama to grab Florida as well.

    FLorida is just so hinky.

    Dems took it in 1996, and 2008.

    Republicans took it in 1992 and 2004.

    2000. Do we REALLY want to go there? Didn't think so.

    If the polls are underestimating HIspanic turnout, Florida has the potential to flip.

    I think the one that might surprise everyone is Arizona.

    I don't necessarily think Obama will win Florida. I just think it will be close, a la 2000. It won't matter this time though.

    You may be right about Arizona if they are underestimating Hispanic turnout such as they underestimated for Nevada in 2010.
