A few weeks out from the election, I am curious who you all think will win?
I think Obama will get a 2nd term. That's just based off my personal thoughts and what I see in my social circle though
University of Colorado has correctly predicted every winner since 1980, and they predict Romney will win. I agree with them.

I never consider a difference of opinion in politics, in religion, in philosopy, as a cause for withdrawing from a friend. --Thomas Jefferson
Not bothering to post any polls. Think it's too close for anyone to predict right now.

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26/13
I think Obama will win. It's going to be close in a few states; I'll be surprised if we have an answer on Election Night. But I have hope that enough people are going to say, "Obama might not be perfect, but we don't want a bigoted liar who thinks his religious views belong in our bedrooms to become our president."

Rest in peace, Martin.
I'm nervous about it to be sure. The latest polls that I have read seem to be pointing towards Romney. I'm certainly hoping that's not the case, but I think it's going to be a close one, and I definitely don't think that Obama has it in the bag. We could lose this thing. That would be....unfortunate. I see Romney as basically Bush II and I think that under Romney we won't even have a chance of moving away from the failed (failed for most of us any way, huge success for the super rich) policies of trickle down economics. But, I accept and believe in the democratic process, so if people vote for Romney then so be it. I hope that if he does win, I'm wrong and that he is successful in bringing prosperity to the country (all of the country, not just the really rich people.)
People aren't stupid. If Romney wins it's going to be a hell of alot of "big brother" getting involved in things they shouldn't be, IMO.
"Binders full of women." This stuff just doesn't get any better. I hope and pray for the sake of every American that this moron doesn't get in.
You can tell me to mind my own business, but our economies are intertwined. See, our Prime Ministers have historically been like this with the US President, except our PM jumps around more than Chester:
I have never felt so uneasy about any candidate until Romney and Ryan came along. You guys remember the snake character from The Jungle Book? I think of that snake every time I think of Romney and Ryan. McCain, Bush, and even Palin have never given me that feeling. If Romney wins, I will seriously be afraid and seriously consider moving out of the country.
