It's President Romney

Or such is the prediction of a prediction model that has correctly forecast the winner of the presidential race in the last eight presidential election cycles:
 University of Colorado political science professors have predicted the outcome of presidential elections since 1980, and have been right each time. They are forecasting Romney to win 52.9 percent of the popular vote compared with 47.1 for Obama, the Camera reported.

The professors, Kenneth Bickers and Michael Berry, conducted a state-by-state analysis using economic data. It shows that President Barack Obama will only win 218 votes in the electoral college. He needs 270 to be re-elected.

Let's hope these guys are right again this year. If they are wrong, we're screwed.
