    I wonder if he factored in the democrat party induced voter fraud?

    Probably not. Romney needs a really big lead to overcome the fraud and abuse, especially like what went on here in Ohio in 2008. If you recall, there were foreign exchange students at Ohio State that voted for Obama and bragged about it on social media sites. Think of how many did so without bragging like some of these idiots.

    Sadly, it's hard to come up with a scenario where Romney wins without Ohio.

    I like this one:

    "Voter rolls have been purged in 2012 of felons and illegals in many states -- particularly Florida and Ohio. Turnout of Democrats will be nothing like 2008."

    This is a must-read article.

    Not so much of what he predicted, but his reasonings are very good.

    I see the same things, and so are many others I talked to.

    For posterity "I’m predicting Romney victories in Ohio, Florida, Colorado, Virginia, Iowa, Wisconsin, New Hampshire, North Carolina, and Indiana. I predict a Romney victory by 100 to 120 electoral votes."

    48 states have "winner take all" apportionment of electoral college votes. I have a hunch this might bring that system into question. It can be changed in each State.

    Even in California, Romney is only down by 14 points.

    You may be right...there's something strange going on in 'The Peoples Republik of New Jersey'. Four years ago, you "couldn't swing a dead cat" without hitting an obama sign or bumber sticker...four years later, I've hardly seen any obama signs & bumper stickers in NJ! I'm talking Monmouth County on the Jersey Shore. I've seen quite a few Romney signs but almost 'zip' for obama.

    I agree with Callihan_44. I don't care if I hear he is going to win by a landslide. I am still going to vote and everyone else should too. I have already made sure all in my family is going to vote too. Let's make sure he DOES win by a landslide.

    Full Disclosure: I hope Obama loses...I really, really, really hope he is right

    This man is a Las Vegas Oddsmaker...which means he makes his money hedging his bet.

    The Scott Walker prediction isn't impressive. I live in this state and everyone knew this was the union's attempt to get their collective bargining back...hell, even the DNC didn't give Barrett their usually kick in for cash

    The 2006 Congress Slaughter...strike 2. Bush polarized this country to the point Obama was elected - people were dumb enough to think they were penalizing the Republicans.

    A 2004 Bush victory? 9/11 was still fresh in people's minds and IMO Kerry was a weaker candidate then Romney

    I hope he is right...but he is working the angle...its his job.

    I thought that was why some of the big polling organizations were oversampling democrats. Its an allowance for expected voter fraud. They tried to sample the dead as first but couldn't get hem to answer the questions.

    Re: OP. Smoke and mirrors. Closely related to voodoo. Like it or not... the squatter will win in the swing states... and that will decide the election. The rest of America does not matter.

    How many liberals have taken their savings out to take the guy up on his bet?

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Anything can still happen, the fact that its likely to be close has the libs scared crapless.

    Good.
