I made my prediction for the election a long time ago, back when Obama was approaching his lowest point in popularity and when the economy was seeming to sink all incumbents. I predicted that Obama would win re-election. Later, I predicted further that he would win handily. I also said that I hope I was wrong, although I almost never am. I don’t think that prediction sounds as silly as it did back then, so I’m sticking to it. I’ll say, with a heavy heart, that Obama will win re-election with at least 20 electoral votes to spare. It takes 271 to elect, so I’m predicting he’ll get 291.
Now it’s your turn to go out on a limb, with everybody being able to find out if you are right or wrong in the next day or so. Who do you think will win? What will be the total electoral vote?
The winner will receive our accolades and admiration. (What should be the consequences if I win or if I lose?)
