    Las Vegas Oddsmaker Wayne Allyn Root predicted that Barack Obama will suffer a massive loss in the General Election even though the current polls do not show Obama necessarily losing. Root stated,


    Forget the polls. My gut instincts as a Vegas oddsmaker and common sense small businessman tell me this will be a historic landslide and a world-class repudiation of Obama’s radical and risky socialist agenda. It's Reagan-Carter all over again.

    Root laid out the rationale for his prediction. He does have a history of successful political predictions.


    Most political predictions are made by biased pollsters, pundits, or prognosticators who are either rooting for Republicans or Democrats. I am neither. I am a former Libertarian Vice Presidential nominee, and a well-known Vegas oddsmaker with one of the most accurate records of predicting political races.

    But as an oddsmaker with a pretty remarkable track record of picking political races, I play no favorites. I simply use common sense to call them as I see them. Back in late December I released my New Years Predictions. I predicted back then- before a single GOP primary had been held, with Romney trailing for months to almost every GOP competitor from Rick Perry to Herman Cain to Newt- that Romney would easily rout his competition to win the GOP nomination by a landslide. I also predicted that the Presidential race between Obama and Romney would be very close until election day. But that on election day Romney would win by a landslide similar to Reagan-Carter in 1980.

    I don't usually look for or depend on Political Commentary by "Jimmy The Greek" types.

    The people also drive by gasoline stations and see the price.

    The people also see the unemployment figures.

    The people have to realize that Obamatax is going to kick the workers and producers in the teeth next year.

    What did they get to see about Romney, he is rich much like most democrats including Obama. Oh yes, his wife rides horses. Something about a dog on the roof. You know real important things.

    The market disagrees.

    The market thinks that Obama's chances of winning are now 77% compared to ~58% a month ago.

    US Presidential Election 2012

    I believe the market. Market's aren't always right but they usually are.

    I've been saying the same thing.. Romney's electoral map is a haven of red.. and will stomp Barack Obama back to Chicagoland.
