On the 5th of November, political scientist Larry Sabato predicted that Barack Obama would be re-elected. Here is an excerpt from his post in which he makes the prediction:
With a slight, unexpected lift provided by Hurricane Sandy, Mother Nature’s October surprise, President Barack Obama appears poised to win his second term tomorrow. Our final Electoral College projection has the president winning the key swing states of Colorado, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Wisconsin and topping Mitt Romney, with 290 electoral votes.
At the time of this post, Fox New projects that Barack Obama has won a second term as President.
