    With one day to go before the first polls close what do you predict the electoral college results will be?

    You can explain why if you want or just post your prediction. Winner gets bragging rights and some rep points from me (now you're excited, aren't you! :lmao:)


    My prediction:

    Romney:301
    Obama: 237

    I feel that a few people, when polled, actually say Obama but when they get in the booth are going to pick Romney. I think it will be a very close race in each state.

    Popular vote...I think Romney wins the popular by ~1,000,000 votes.


    What are your predictions?

    Obama- 278

    Romney- 260

    You seem to have Romney winning every swing state. Unlikely to happen. Mitt peaked two weeks ago.

    I say you (the OP) are close to what will happen. I certainly agree that Romney is likely to win the popular vote, proving to me once again that America is not completely full of fools.

    I agree also that there are many people that are afraid to speak against Obama or to say that they will not vote for him...but when they get to that booth, there's nobody watchin'!

    Honestly don't know but I'm cautiously and optimistically thinking that Romney maybe might win possibly but if he does it will be by a close margin. I think.

    :lol:

    Either way I don't see any landslides. However, I'd love to be wrong about that and see an R&R landslide so I can come back here on Wed and eat my words!

    One thing I will be grateful for, regardless of who wins? Those damn robo calls will stop. We're up to call number 7 or 8 just today and it isn't even 5pm yet. Bob Barker called today. wtf? lol I stopped answering the phone last week..

    yeah i made the mistake of saying "Sure you can" when a polling place asked me a few years ago if they could call me again....i didn't know that meant they would tell EVERY polling place to call me!
