Just because it annoys some of you so much, I’m going to ask everyone who wants to participate for their predictions of who wins the Republican nomination, general election, control of the House, and control of the Senate this fall. And by how much.
I’ll go first:
Romney wins the nomination. In mid-April or so, the thing is over, maybe officially, maybe not, but effectively over.
Obama beats Romney 49.8–47.4, with third-parites of some kind getting the remaining 2.8%. We hear a lot about how Obama didn’t get a majority blah blah blah. No mandate blah blah blah.
Republicans take the Senate by one seat.
Democrats gain in the House but Republicans continue to hold about five seat edge.
