1. Michael Barone, Washington Examiner:

”Fundamentals usually prevail in American elections. That’s bad news for Barack Obama. ... Bottom line: Romney 315, Obama 223. That sounds high for Romney. But he could drop Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and still win the election. Fundamentals.”

2. Glenn Beck, TheBlaze TV:

“321‑217 victory for Romney in the electoral college. … I think you are going to see a miraculous night tomorrow.”

3. Dean Chambers, UnskewedPolls.com:

“The QStarNews projection of the 2012 presidential race sees Mitt Romney being elected the next president of the United States with 53.63 percent of the popular vote and 359 electoral votes to President Obama's 45.92 percent and 179 electoral votes.”

4. Newt Gingrich, Fox News:

"My personal guess is you'll see a Romney landslide, 53 percent-plus . . . in the popular vote, 300 electoral votes-plus."

5. Larry Kudlow, CNBC:

”I am now predicting a 330 vote electoral landslide [for Romney]. Yes, that’s right: 330 electoral votes.”

6. Dick Morris, Fox News:

“We’re going to win by a landslide. It will be the biggest surprise in recent American political history. It will rekindle a whole question as to why the media played this race as a nail-biter, where in fact I think that Romney is going to win by quite a bit. My own view is that Romney is going to carry 325 electoral votes.”

7. Wayne Allyn Root, Washington Times:

“I have a history of predicting political winners and losers without ever taking a poll. I just take the pulse of the thousands of people I know from my background in sports (as a Las Vegas oddsmaker), business (as a CEO) and politics (as the former Libertarian vice presidential nominee, a conservative columnist and media personality). What I see and hear is a coming Mitt Romney landslide…. I’m predicting a 5 to 7 point popular vote victory. Electorally it won’t even be that close. …  I predict a Romney victory by 100 to 120 electoral votes. … Mitt Romney will win in a landslide.”

8. Karl Rove, Fox News:

“It comes down to numbers. And in the final days of this presidential race, from polling data to early voting, they favor Mitt Romney….  In addition to the data, the anecdotal and intangible evidence—from crowd sizes to each side's closing arguments—give the sense that the odds favor Mr. Romney. They do. My prediction: Sometime after the cock crows on the morning of Nov. 7, Mitt Romney will be declared America's 45th president. Let's call it 51%-48%, with Mr. Romney carrying at least 279 Electoral College votes, probably more.”

9. George Will, ABC News :

“Electoral College: Romney, 321; Obama, 217. Popular Vote:  Romney, 49.7; Obama, 48.4.”

And one who wildly overshot the mark from the other direction…

10. Jim Cramer, CNBC:

Obama, 440; Romney, 98. "The presidential race is nowhere as close as the polls suggest."

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
