With President Obama coming to Fort Collins Colorado next Tuesday, and Governor Mitt Romney getting ready to get the Republican nomination at the Republican National Convention, it’s time we all take a breath- because CU already knows who’ll be elected.

This is going to save everyone a ton of grief. No need to have debates on TV, debates with friends and family.  The official election process can be put on hold, because the University of Colorado has come out with their analysis- and it does not look good for one of these guys. Keep in mind this CU analysis HAS predicted the outcome of each presidential election since 1980- that’s a pretty good record.

It all comes down to the economy, according to the CU professors in charge of the analysis, Kenneth Bickers of CU-Boulder and Michael Berry of CU Denver.

From their report:

“Based on our forecasting model, it becomes clear that the president is in electoral trouble,”

Boom. There you have it. The 2012 presidential election goes to Romney.

What is striking about our state-level economic indicator forecast is the expectation that Obama will lose almost all of the states currently considered as swing states, including North Carolina, Virginia, New Hampshire, Colorado, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida,” Bickers said.

The report predicts that President Obama will only get 218 votes in the Electoral College, when he NEEDS 270 to get re-elected. Add into the equation how other political scientists are predicting that Romney will also receive more of the popular vote: (Obama 47.1% , Romney 52.9%)

It IS weird how this study HAS correctly predicted the outcome for the last SIX presidential elections… what do you think?
