Obama has the easiest route to 270 electoral votes, which is what really matters, not the popular vote.

Romney essentially has to run the table on all of the swing states to get to 270.

My prediction is Obama gets 277 electoral votes.

Romney to win election ... if Redskins Rule holds true according to this article which is reproduced under the Fair Dealing provisions of the Copyright Act from the Toronto Sun

The way the Redskins have been the past 10 years, it was a given that they would loose yesterday. Can't put too much into that one. Hell, all of Washington's pro sports teams seem to choke or be just plain crap over the past 10 years (see below to understand how painful that was to say) ;D

Hoping for Romney, but afraid that Obama will likely pull it off.  If that happens, expect lots of Republicans/Tea Potters immigrating to Canada.

;D

One final prediction, the final results won't come until late Wednesday or later into the week. The call might come in the wee hours of Wednesday, but the final numbers are going to drag on.

I will go out on a limb and predict a landslide for Romney 356 to 182. Obama takes the northeast,DC,Illinois,Iowa,California,Washington,Oregon,Nevada and New Mexico [14 states].

Romney, as I too believe the Democrats have been over sampled.

Disaster for USA and Canada if Obama re-elected. Except for stone masons/blasters that is. Mount Rushmore will get $100 + billion in stimulus for creating a new face.

I can see it as a hung vote, Obama getting the popular vote but Romney getting the Electoral College.

That's a hard one to figure out how that would happen. It would mean that Obama would have to loose 55 electoral votes from the Likely or leaning states, as well as all of the swing states.

Just don't start sawing on that limb. ;D

One good thing about tomorrow, it all comes to an end and I can go back to watching the regularly scheduled ED medication commercials. Yeah.  :nod:

Time to be contrary.

Canadians in general (for that matter the rest of the world except Pakistan - go figure) have been polled and generally support an Obama win by about a 2/3 majority.

This being a military forum however I expect there will be strong support for the Republicans.

Happened to be on a staff visit to Ft Bragg the night before the 1980 elections when Reagan won. We had a fairly large officers' call at the officers' mess when the commander of XVIII Corps toasted the election and stated. "Tomorrow we'll have a new president or else tomorrow you'll have a new commander of XVIII Corps." Not too ambivalent that man and quite reflective of military opinion in general.

Personally my long standing leaning towards the Republicans has come to an end. Their policies have become to extreme for my taste. They don't even pretend to want to rule on behalf of all of the country any more. They want to rule only for their most extreme and richest supporters. Too bad. It used to be a good party.

The current POTUS - both Electoral & Popular vote.

Glad to have been on Ex the past two weeks ... and missed all the diatribe; your televisions must have been swamped with "polls" and red & blue Koolaid drinking pundits. (which I hate).

Obama by a comfortable margin due to the EC votes.  He has done his darndest over the last 4 yrs to turn the US into a client state.  It's only a few weeks shy of Thanksgiving and turkeys (clients) don't vote for that holiday, nor Christmas.

I hope I'm wrong though for $16,000,000,000,000 reasons.

I picked Obama, as I think for Romney to win he would lower than usual national voter turnout rates. But it should be close in any event.

Don't care.

To paraphrase something ERC wrote somewhere else: Whichever gets elected, the impact on Canadians will be negligeable.

The real winners will be everyone else.  Like that little girl crying on the video says, "I'm tired of hearing about Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney".  How I wish the US was like us and did this nauseating process in a matter of weeks instead of months.

Wouldn't we be a bit too "socialist" for them?  ;)

  I hope Obama wins for the sole purpose that I need another four years of laughs.  I won't see the same sky is falling, hyperbolic nonsense with Romney  :nod:
