On September 16, 2011, when the Republican primaries were still in full swing, I predicted that Mitt Romney would be the next President of the United States. I continue to stand by my prediction. I am now going to predict, not only a Romney win, but a very convincing one. My guess is that Romney wins with 52% of the popular vote and 331 electoral votes compared to 48% for Obama and 207 electoral votes.
Furthermore, I predict that Republicans will expand their majority in the House and gain a slight majority in the Senate, expanding from their current 47 seats to 51 or 52. We are going to see an extension of the 2010 bloodbath that left the Democratic Party in shambles. And not a moment too soon.
If, throughout the day on Tuesday, you hear a contrary prediction based on exit polls, don’t buy it for a second. The election of 2004 demonstrated that exit polls can be hopelessly flawed. I don’t know what the exit polls will suggest throughout the day, but I predict that, once the vote totals start coming in, Romney will be on his way to such a convincing win that Obama will be forced to concede on Tuesday night.
