The University of Colorado (CU) prediction renowned for perfect accuracy will predict a popular-vote win for Mitt Romney later this month, Campus Reform has learned.
The poll has accurately predicted every presidential election since it was developed in 1980. It is unique in that it employs factors outside of state economic indicators to predict the next president.
CU Political Science Professor Dr. Michael Berry, who spoke with Campus Reform at length on Tuesday, said there is at least 77 percent chance that Romney will win the popular vote.
Our model indicates that Governor Romney has a 77 percent likelihood of winning the popular vote, said Berry.
That number is significant, not only in its size, but because of the fact that only four presidents since the nations founding have won the presidency without capturing the popular vote, the last being George W. Bush in 2000.
Berry noted his model has never been wrong at predicting the outcome of a presidential election.
For the last eight presidential elections, this model has correctly predicted the winner, he said.
Berry also acknowledged that while his poll is accurate, however, that his model does not calculate a specific confidence level for the Electoral College result.
The study, conducted every four years, is non-political and employs historical data as well as current unemployment numbers and income levels.

What. About Ohio?
Good news ping.
Whatever models, polls, analysis, predictions, etc...we win if our people show up to vote - they don’t, we lose. It is that simple - turn out, turn out, turn out.
That's good, but this is only our 2nd experiece with an Affirmative Action presidential race which might skew the vote - AGAIN.
Swing states are all that matters now.
