PHOENIX, November 6, 2012- On Tuesday, Gov. Mitt Romney will prevail and President Obama will be sent back to Chicago.
For the Electoral College, I predict Mitt Romney will win 289 electoral votes and President Obama will win 249.
Mitt Romney will carry all of the states won by John McCain in 2008, plus Indiana, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Ohio, Colorado, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin.
Though Pennsylvania and Nevada are in the Obama column, those are two states that I truly think could go either way. We’ll finally know the truth tomorrow though. If the state of Pennsylvania does goes for Romney that will really be historic as it’s a state that hasn’t gone for a Republican presidential candidate in over 20 years.
Wisconsin will go Romney due to the strong Republican organization that helped Gov. Scott Walker survive the recall election in June. These same voters will deliver the state for Mitt Romney.
Obama barely won North Carolina in 2008; it was bound to go red in 2012.
Ohio should be very interesting on election night. Some claim that the Democrats have a huge lead in early voting and some claim it’s close. Though once all the votes are counted, I believe Romney will prevail in the Buckeye State.
Florida has been trending strong for Romney since the first Denver debate and voters in the Sunshine State will remember that debate, allowing Romney to win.
Withal, as I mentioned in my latest column, the electorate knows the country is $16 trillion in debt and that unemployment has been rather high for the last four years.
No stump speech or campaign promise will change that. When Americans go to the voting booth, they will look at each candidate’s name and arrive at a conclusion on who they believe will be best for the country and their wellbeing for the next four years.
If they’ve been unemployed and are facing economic hardships, they’re going to vote for Romney. If they believe the government should play a large role in their life, they’ll re-elect Obama.
Mitt Romney will be elected the 45th President of the United States today, and Barack Obama will be the 12 incumbent president to lose re-election.
