    So, do you think it will be a blowout or a razor thin decision?

    FYI: Poll is public as usual. We can tell if you decide to be a immature child and spam the poll as a guest.
    Just going with a gut instinct. Believe the polls are misled by which way the independents will fall and that Romney will win by a significant electoral advantage. To be followed immediately from the left of claiming voter fraud, racism and the "Hurricane Sandy effect".

    Could be wrong. Just my guess....

    At this point, anyone's guess is as good as anyone else's.

    I do think it's going to be close.

    It's not going to be a blowout, that's for sure. At the moment it looks like Obama has the edge, but not overwhelmingly so. It's not as though a Romney win would be all that surprising.

    Razor thin, don't know. Hard to tell, really, but it feels like it's going to be a close one. We will certainly see, and I will certainly be very drunk before the announcement is made.

    Neither. The EC will be 290 to 248 or very close to that. I do not consider this razor thin or a blow out.

    The popular vote will be much closer with Obama just carryiing it by less than 5% of the total

    I think Obama will win, most likely by a razor thin margin. However, if Obama gets Florida because of the way the Electoral College map is looking this year, we'll know who won as soon as Ohio is declared presumably as an Obama win. If Obama loses Florida, we won't know until Colorado or maybe Nevada.

    I also think its possible for Obama to win the election but lose the popular vote. Another factor is the impact of Hurricane Sandy, which is impacting early voting and might change the outcome.

    Up until the closing time on the west coast is also a possiblity. Some articles I have read say that we won't know for sure untill California stops voting.

    Razor thin, and I have no idea who is going to win. If I were forced to make a bet, I'd probably bet on Obama as the incumbent, but it'd have to be a small wager.

    Re: Blowout or Razor Thin?

    Razor thin, could go either way, though if I had to make a call one way or another it'd be Obama but with very little confidence.

    I think the popular vote will be less than a 3% difference.

    I think neither side will have more than 320 Electoral Votes (IE no one's getting over 60% of the electoral votes). I actually expect neither to get over 295, which would be less than 55%
