I’ve been debating whether or not to write this Boston Herald column for days, and finally I said “What the heck.” Not only is this how I feel about the POTUS race, it’s what I’m hearing from a growing number of smart, serious-minded people who are just too superstitious/afraid/reluctant to admit it:
One week from today, the Boston Herald’s front page will either read “Obama Pulls Out Victory” Or “Romney Wins.” (Actually, given that this is the Herald the headline will be something clever like, “He’s Barack In Charge!” or “Sweet Mitt-ory!”)
I predict the latter. One week from today, Mitt wins.
I’ll even go a step farther. I’ll ask the question poll watchers across America are thinking but afraid to ask: Is this election over?
If your source of news is MSNBC or the Boston Globe-Democrat, obviously not. If anything, you think President Obama is on the verge of a massive sweep from North Carolina to Nevada.
But if you’ve been watching the polls and the campaigns at all objectively, you’re starting to see a picture develop. One where Romney’s the winner well before bedtime.
If I’m wrong—always a distinct possibility—I expect you to mock me mercilessly one week from today.
And if I’m right—let’s party!
Either way, please post your rebuttals, observations and predictions below!
