    I voted halfway between what I think and what I hope.


    Realistically, who knows what's going to happen in Ohio. I can't believe national swings haven't bled into that state more strongly.

    I tend to agree with this. I find it difficult to believe that Ohio seems to be polling almost 3 points more Democratic than the national vote, and is likely to be the tipping point state. I think it's more likely that either the national polls are overestimating Romney's standing or the Ohio polls are overestimating Obama's standing (or both).

    Interesting, maybe a good idea.
    But, of course, if this happens, Mr Obama has no chance.
    IMO, with tens of millions of votes cast, the winning number should be 50.01% or more...As it is now, just one vote makes or breaks.
    Florida was close and handled very poorly - at least if one believes the news reports.
    We do need reform and improvement here - a national ID card would help.
    "Not sure" was my vote, I fear the worst if the tea-baggers win...

    Depends on what is meant by "blowout". Could I see either candidate winning by, oh, 50 electoral votes? Sure. Can I see Nixon '72 or Reagan '84? Hell no. That'll never happen again.

    Obama only because of the increase in third party votes, and because of Romney's increasing mishaps and shooting himself in the foot. This new coming out of details how he wanted to shut down FEMA is not going to sit well with people. His increases in defense spending is what scares me, is FEMA going to suffer even though he recanted his previous statements. I can see now funding from education, green technologies, and disaster relief being drained to increase the size of our military, even when it is not needed. Since 9/11 only 33 people have been killed in the United States by acts of terrorism, Hurricane Sandy alone almost surpasses that number.

    The blowout will be so big and Romney will take so many states that everyone thinks lean obama that the media will be standing around with their jaws on their chest unable to speak a single word which will be a refreshing change. I have been right on every election since I came of voting age and I feel more strongly on this than ever before. I have a knack for judging the mood of the nation. Mark my words and you can all bow and kiss my ring the day after the election.

    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.
    I think that it will be rather close, and flip a coin as to who wins.

    I'm thinking blowout might be a little strong but I am expecting Romney to win relatively easily. About 5-6% nationally and somewhere around 330 EV. I'm basing this on what I'm seeing in Wisconsin. Polls have this state a toss up with the rolling average tilting ever so slightly Obama. Romney is going to win this state by at least 5%. Write it down.

    Romney. Because I believe there is still enough positive in America.

    Razor thin for Romney only because of his late rally. Although the Hurricane could throw a wrench in it
