Predict Who Will Win the 2012 Presidential Election: Obama or Romney?

Now that the Democratic and Republican delegates have officially chosen their nominees at their Conventions, Patch wants to know: Who are you betting on?

It's official: With President Barack Obama's acceptance speech in Charlotte Thursday night, both the Republicans and Democrats have formally chosen their nominees for the 2012 presidential election. Let the real race begin.

A lot can change between now and Nov. 6: gaffes, scandals or even major international news events could shift the dynamics of the campaign.

The latest Gallup Polls show registered voters preferring Obama to Mitt Romney by just one percentage point, 47 percent to 46 percent. A USA Today/Gallup poll taken just before the party conventions found American voters think Obama is more likeable, but trust Romney more to handle the economy.

Pundits have been busy for months handicapping the major-party candidates on various factors: incumbent advantage, fundraising clout, even religion.

Patch wants to know: Regardless of who you support for President, who do you think will actually claim victory in November?

Vote in our poll below, and let us know your reasoning in the comments.

John--you actually answered the question of this thread, "Predict who will win the election." Congratulations! I answered that eons ago, and Vin/Andy have yet to answer. I agree--Obama will win. FYI--expect an insult by Andy/Vinnie in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.. The neocons are desperate, as evidenced by the childish insults they hurled at me. I'm still crying.

Looks like "Pinocchio" Romney is at it again! YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- Vice President Joe Biden and former President Bill Clinton have criticized Mitt Romney for saying that Chrysler is shifting production of its Jeep brand autos from Ohio to China. Jeep, a major employer in Ohio, has said it is adding jobs in China to meet growing demand there but is not halting production in North America. Campaigning together in the crucial swing state, Clinton said that Jeep has called Romney's claim "the biggest load of bull in the world."
