The 2012 presidential campaign has finally reached the last leg of a very long journey, and it’s now the last-minute sprint to the finish line. The answer as to who will win this election is quite clear.
Governor Mitt Romney has since the first debate in October been gaining steam. He’s proven himself time and again to be the leader this country needs, and it seems evident that Romney will become the 45th president of the United States of America on January 20, 2013.
After a careful study and deep analysis of the electoral map, news articles and columns, it is my belief that the former Massachusetts governor will capture the battleground states of Pennsylvania (20), New Hampshire (4), Ohio (18), Wisconsin (10), Iowa (6), Virginia (13), Florida (29), North Carolina (15), Colorado (9), Michigan (16) and Maine’s 2nd District, pulling him to the top. In total, Romney will win 331 electoral votes (or 33 states), with the possibility of capturing Nevada (6) and New Mexico (5).
Despite the national mainstream media calling this a very tight race between Romney and Obama, let’s look at another more recent race that occurred in Wisconsin. In The Badger State, the state media also called the June recall election between republican Governor Scott Walker and Mayor Tom Barrett (D-Milwaukee) a race too close to call. Yet, in the end, Walker trounced his opponent by 7 percent. Why did the press and the polls get it so wrong in Wisconsin? It looks like the national media and the polling companies are also adhering to the same game plan as in Wisconsin. Or is it that the polls are not as good as they’re purported to be?
