My 2012 Election Predictions

American politics is like sports - you root for your team and watch the numbers trying to figure out who is going to win.  In that spirit, here are a few of my predictions of how this year's race is going to pan out:
  1. President Obama will win the election.
  2. President Obama will win the popular vote.
  3. The House of Representatives will have a Republican majority.
  4. The Senate will have a Democratic majority.
  5. The color red will remain red.
Can you say, "Super obvious?"  I certainly did, so lets make this much more interesting and get specific - with margins of error to boot:
  1. President Obama will be declared the victor by the majority of the press at precisely 11:00 PM Eastern time (MOE: 1 minute)
  2. President Obama will win 50.7% of the popular vote (MOE: 0.2%)
  3. The House of Representatives will be split 242(R), 193(D) (MOE: 5 seats)
  4. The Senate will be split 51(D), 47(R), 2(I) (MOE: 0)
Do you have some predictions to share?  Post them here or on my Facebook page so you can be properly mocked.
