I may have to eat crow tomorrow, but after reviewing the data, it looks as if Mitt Romney will win tonight's election. Although most polls have the Republican and Democrat nominees in a dead heat, the basis for this prediction is in some very compelling data.
The most recent George Washington University poll relays that 50% of voters disapprove of the job Obama has done on the economy and a 60% disapprove of his handling of federal spending and the deficit. A full 44% and 48% "strongly" disapprove of his performance in those categories. Only 27% and 18% respectively strongly approve of how Obama has handled those aspects of the economy
The economy is the top concern of voters, followed by jobs and government spending and the deficit. In these critical areas that matter most to Americans, Obama's ratings are dismal.
Factor that with indications that 50% of all voters disapprove of the overall job Obama has done as president with a huge 46% saying they strongly disapprove.
Americans vote with their pocketbooks. Obama's failure on his handling of the economy will, if my analysis bears out, bring his presidency to an end with the conclusion of his first term.
