It was about a year ago that I predicted that Mitt Romney would win the Republican nomination and ultimately the presidency. (I also made a similar prediction on my Facebook account around the same time, which is no longer active). I was right about the nomination, and I remain confident about my prediction for the general election.
In fact, I want to take things one step further and predict a convincing Romney victory as part of an overall Democrat bloodbath. The Republicans will maintain a strong majority in the House, they will gain control of the Senate with 55-57 seats, and they will win the White House by a comfortable margin (perhaps even by a landslide).
All of the signs are pointing in this direction. The Obama campaign has become unhinged. It has no unifying message, other than the claim that Mitt Romney is the antichrist who murders innocent women, refuses to pay taxes, and abuses animals. And the only reason he chose Paul Ryan is because he enjoys watching the young congressman torture grandmothers. These dirty tactics will backfire.
Romney’s base is energized. His VP pick was brilliant. Swing voters will break his way. The Tea Party won round 1 in 2010. This year, they will take round 2 as well. That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.
