In my home state here, I cast my vote around 2:30pm with relative ease as there were not very many people out. However, as I drove less than a mile to my polling location I listened as Rush Limbaugh said what I've told many of my friends and that is that you can find on the internet, television and radio someone pushing whatever you want to hear as far as the election outcome is concerned. This is why, for the most part I haven't written on how I see the election turning out.
I have made a couple of posts with regards to polls, but not as to determining who would win or why. While I realize that many of the battleground polls have been oversampled for Democrats for some of the network and cable television outlets, I also realize that the major polling organizations have not done that. Basically overall the polls indicate a dead heat.
Although many professional prognosticators see President Obama as the favorite tomorrow, some notable conservatives are dissenting. Their maps show everything from a slim win by Mitt Romney with 275 Electoral College votes to a 325-vote landslide, with some maps putting Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and even Michigan in play.
One thing these seven maps agree on, however, is a Romney win in Ohio.
He also points over to the Ten 2012 Electoral College Predictions having Barack Obama ahead. These can be viewed here.
Romney 325, Obama 213
George Will calls it like this:
Romney 321, Obama 217
Michael Barone predicts this:
Romney 315, Obama 223
Dean Chambers, who actually started a new polls site just over a month ago, which I wrote about sees this:
Romney 311, Obama 227
Romney 284, Obama 254
Karl Rove claimed and even slighter edge for Romney:
Romney 279, Obama 259
One interesting point to these maps is that the only one that viewed Romney as winning Ohio was Domenech. I didn't post that map, but you can see it here.
The left is making similar predictions, but again, at least from polling data, it appears the race is going to be a very tight one. However, appearances can be deceiving.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
