And the Winner Will Be….

November 5, 2012

This is it, folks. What may be the longest—and certainly is the most expensive—presidential campaign ends Tuesday. And then all the polling, politicking and pontificating will be over. The American people will vote. Who will they choose?

I’ve examined RealClearPolitics’ composite polls and Nate Silver’s probability models at FiveThirtyEight. I’ve also considered The Huffington Post’s Pollster Model Estimates. I’ve reviewed the electoral histories of the major swing states and then I drew my map.

I’m projecting Barack Obama will be reelected president by a narrow Electoral College margin of 281-257.

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
