Gave mine in the other thread... At least you are not one predicting a landslide one way or the other... I thoroughly believe this will be a close one.... the only thing with yours is that there is no way in hell NC or VA goes to Obamalama... I think all the others are plausible, even if I don't agree on which side they will fall

A close one with charges of fraud from the loser.

If you add Virginia's 13 electoral votes to the 257 Saigon thinks Romney will get, say hello to President Romney.

Not sure how you put NC in the Obama column. That state is gone for him. VA I suppose is still a possibility, but that's looking increasingly bleak as well. Interesting that you put Nevada for Romney considering he hasn't been ahead in a single poll there.

I don't think you put much thought into your "prediction."

In Liberal minds, rent free.
Obama will win re-election because you cannot fix stupid.

Romney 295 Obama 243. That's being generous to Obama. I think it could probably be a much bigger win especially with Benghazi news that keeps coming out.

You're right - I didn't!

I just went with gut feeling...very likely wrong about Virginia and Nevada, anyway.

A close election for sure, but no matter who wins the presidency there will be a peaceful transfer of power. Any civil disturbances will be able to be handled by the local police wherever they happen.

Romney wins, Republicans win both the House and the Senate. The tide has turned.

This. I've predicted elsewhere a 271-275 for Obama versus 267-263 for Romney total, depending on New Hampshire. We won't know for sure the results election night until Nevada comes in, if then. I seriously expect to see multiple lawsuits and some lawyering up.

I also expect we will have a different person win the popular vote from the one winning the electoral vote.

I see no point in making a prediction if you are going to just play it safe. So I predict it wont be a close election at all. Based on what I think, and some polling shows, will be higher Republican turn out and lower Dem Turn out.

I am going to go with Romney 300 Plus EC votes,

4 to 6% lead in Popular Vote.

As far as congress I think the GOP will gain a few seats in the house and senate but not enough to take the Senate.

Charles -

That is a bold call....300 EC seats for either side is bold. I just don't see a landslide right now...too many seats are on a razor's edge that it suggests to me some will go one way and some the other. It makes the entire result almost random.

I have to say, I think it's crazy that one state like Virginia could determine the outcome for the whole country.
