Dave Keene: Romney Will Win by 5 to 7 Points This election isnt going to be a race just about whether this guy has a better smile or a better haircut or all of the things that the popular media likes to look at, Keene says. This is a race about the direction voters want the country to go in, and the difference is going to be clearer than it has been in any election in a long time, certainly since Ronald Reagan, and that gets people involved because its about big questions and it challenges them, Keene says. As a result of the intensity on both sides, Obamas defeat will not be as lopsided as was Jimmy Carters, Keene predicts. Ronald Reagan triumphed over Carter by 10 percentage points in the popular vote and won a landslide in the Electoral College. I think that you are more likely to get a five to seven percentage-point difference, Keene says. In addition, We could pick up six to eight seats in the Senate. If Romney is president and Republicans win both houses of Congress, Romney is going to be able to make the changes that he wants to make, Keene says.
