I hear reporters on NBC, CBS, BBC World News, Al Jazeera, and France 24 talk about the election as a virtual tie.
I disagree. President Barach Obama is going to win almost every state. Mitt Romney is going down to defeat.
American presidential elections are decided on the number of electoral votes, with 270 needed to win. Each state is assigned so many electoral votes, based on population. Illinois, for example, has 20 electoral votes. If Obama wins in Illinois, he garners all of the state's 20 electoral votes.
From what I see in state-by-state polls, I predict Pres. Barach Obama will win with 320 electoral votes.
