    The University of Colorado just came out with their study that predicts the presidential winner. They have apparently never been wrong in the 32 yrs they've been doing this.

    Romney - 53% and 313? EV [I think I caught that number right]
    Obama - 47%

    Apparently there is one predictor that has been fairly reliable thru the years and that is that an incumbent will get the same % of the vote as his job approval rating. That pretty much matches the U of C study.

    This was just on the news so have no link.

    President Romney and Vice President Ryan. Sounds nice, doesn't it? Thirty two years? Sounds great!!! Think I'll go to the tavern!

    I'm voting for Romney, this is someone on your own side urging caution.

    While I'd like nothing better than to see Obutthead and company be given the boot come November, never, ever, ever count your chickens before they've hatched.

    Being a numbers cruncher............

    I've worked my own purely amateur figures and have already come to the conclusion that R&R "should" win and possibly handily.

    Yes, the whole world could come to an end but I don't waste my time fretting about unanticipated "surprises."

    I'm just delighted to see someone with the experience and success rate confirm my feeble efforts.

    I have a serious question.

    Why would people elect Romney for a possible 8 years when they would only have Obama for 4 more? They are damn near identical. In anything that matters they are the same...
