    According to their updated analysis, Romney is projected to receive 330 of the total 538 Electoral College votes. President Barack Obama is expected to receive 208 votes -- down five votes from their initial prediction -- and short of the 270 needed to win.

    The new forecast by political science professors Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver is based on more recent economic data than their original Aug. 22 prediction. The model itself did not change.

    And this was BEFORE Mitt Romney got to show who he really is by destroying Obama in the debate.

    Hmmmm, let's review.

    On the one hand, academic, peer reviewed, research that has successfully predicted every election since 1980.

    On the other, polls.

    I know which I lean towards.

    Yeah, but you have a time machine so it's not exactly fair.
