While a majority of the world’s top astrologers predict Barack Obama has nearly a 90% probability of winning re-election to the U.S. Presidency, the University of Colorado’s quadrennial model to predict who will win the electoral college vote allocation, which has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1980, has Romney projected to receive 330 of the total 538 Electoral College votes.
Of the 13 battleground states identified in the model, the only one to change in the update was New Mexico — now seen as a narrow victory for Romney. The model foresees Romney carrying New Mexico, North Carolina, Virginia, Iowa, New Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida. Obama is predicted to win Michigan and Nevada.
The model predicts that Romney will receive 53.3 percent of the vote to Obama’s 46.7 percent, with only the two major parties considered.
