Skip to comments.Romney wins in a landslide -- Las Vegas oddsmaker doubles down on prediction

Yes, you read that headline correctly. I am a Las Vegas oddsmaker (and former Libertarian vice presidential candidate) and here's why I am so boldly predicting a Romney landslide.
In November of 2004, only days before the presidential election, I went on CNBC and predicted a Bush victory by 3 points and 30 electoral votes. Every poll at the time showed Kerry in the lead. Bush won by 3 and 35. Newsmax magazine called it the most accurate prediction of 2004.
In October of 2006, I went on Fox News to predict the GOP would get slaughtered in the midterm election and lose Congress. They did.
In December 2011, before the GOP primary, I predicted Mitt Romney would win the GOP presidential nomination and go on to win the presidency. For the next few months, Romney trailed by a wide margin to a range of contenders -- Donald Trump, Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum.
It seemed no one wanted Mitt for president. It seemed no one believed in Mitt. No one, that is, except this Las Vegas oddsmaker and capitalist evangelist.

Root’s shameless self-promotion is getting old.
We so pray he’s right.
I want the Marxist, his evil party and regime humiliated in a landslide defeat.
Ditto for his evil lapdog media. I want to gloat and watch them report Romney/Ryan’s victory.
Lord, hear our prayers.
If he does, which I pray to God is the truth, our headlines WONT read that way.........More like

Trust me, he will not go out without a fight.

They’ll never call it a landslide.
I’m still waiting for cbs’s results
On the 2004 election.
Yes, but the author didn’t count on Obama’s SECRET SURPRISE.
The Obama campaign wanted to use Bruce Springteens music. He finally said OK, but refused to do any personal appearances.
Now, with Obama trailing, I guess the bigwigs in Hollywood leaned on Springsteen or offered him more money because he has now agreed to PERFORM at a BENEFIT (DNC benefit) Concert in OHIO, and another state.
Obama is playing the BOSS card in Ohio.
Root does a lot of bragging here, going back to 2004. But he skips over 2008 and 2010 without a mention.
Those were important elections, and they relate to the article, and both were relatively easy elections to predict.
No mention of either.
That makes me suspicious. He’s cherry picking.
WEll in 2008 he was VP nominee for the Libertarian Party so I think he probably wasn’t doing any predicting or polling.
And in 2010 it seems as though he was yet again active in the LP leadership.
Hard to ‘have a record’ when you didn’t participate don’t you think
How can that be?
thinkin someone is a fraud.
Yes. Lord hear our prayers.
This is not what I remember...
I want the same...but if, as some believe, we are in the end times, doesn’t he win? Just wondering.
Driving yesterday I saw two R&R yard signs and none Obama. Lots of local hacks signs kinda surprise
That photo of Elian Gonzalez at gunpoint with big bird’s head replacing Elian’s would be a good counter to this photo.
Yes, I would agree that Obama is a fraud.
This is not what I remember... **********************************************
It isn't what you remember because it isn't true. Bush was leading in almost every poll by a small margin.
With Netanyahu and Romney in charge, we won’t be at the end times, IMHO.
There’s no Boss card. Springsteen has scarcely sold a record since the eighties.
His tours do well, but compared to songs selling millions, it’s still a tiny audience.
No hit songs = no press coverage = nobody hears you. And nobody cares.
Well.... there you go.
its still a tiny audience.
Well.... it's going to be a tiny audience.
