    Go to 2012 Presidential Election Interactive Map and History of the Electoral College, click the states until they match your prediction, then click the "Share Map" button and copy the URL that appears under the heading New! Share your Map.

    Paste it into your post along with the electoral totals and your projected winner.

    Here is mine:

    Romney 276
    Obama 262

    Don't see where Romney is giving anyone a reason to vote for him. In fact, he's giving quite a few a reason not to do so.

    I'd say Obama taking North Carolina is pretty wishful thinking. He took it by 1% in 2008 when he was at the height of popularity and the market had just crashed. That's not a situation he will enjoy this time. The same is probably true of Florida where with the same conditions he won by just 3%.

    It's quite bold to think Obama will take those two states given the conditions he faces now.

    I didn't give Obama North Carolina or Florida.
