(1) Conservative Pundits: Romney will win the election in a landslide
We decided that it was unfair to single out any one of these predictions, since they all met the threshold of being spectacularly off-target.
|Larry Kudlow||Romney will get 330 electoral votes|
|Dick Morris||Romney will get 325 electoral votes|
|Glenn Beck||Romney will get 321 electoral votes|
|George Will||Romney will get 321 electoral votes|
|Michael Barone||Romney will get 315 electoral votes|
|Wayne Allyn Root||Romney will win by 100-120 electoral votes|
(2) Chris Matthews: Michele Bachmann will win the GOP nomination
Some have argued that Matthews was joking, but we don’t buy it. Decide for yourself.
(3) Dick Morris: Obama might pull out of the election
This prediction was too hedged to include on PunditTracker.com, but it was so outrageous — and outrageously wrong — that it justified a spot on this list.
<< As bad news piles up for the Democrats, I asked a top Democratic strategist if it were possible that President Obama might “pull a Lyndon Johnson” and soberly face the cameras, telling America that he has decided that the demands of partisan politics are interfering with his efforts to right our economy and that he has decided to withdraw to devote full time to our recovery. His answer: “Yes. It’s possible. If things continue as they are and have not turned around by January, it is certainly possible.”….. if the Republicans nominate a more moderate candidate such as Mitt Romney, Obama will not be able to rely on partisan animosity to succeed where job approval has failed. And, given all that, he might not even run. >> [Dickmorris.com]
