After the Conventions: Who Will Win the 2012 Presidential Election?

Now that the Democratic and Republican delegates have officially chosen their nominees, 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?

Let us know your reasoning in the comments.

Lindy, The trouble with voting for the lesser of two evils is not knowing if the "lesser evil" is simply just a better liar. Good luck with that. As for me, I'm voting 3rd party, at least I'll be able to sleep at night knowing I didnt endorse evil >KNOWINGLY.

It's amazing how people won't let silly things like facts affect their opinion. Politics is a complicated scenario, and unless you understand the politics that the president needs to deal with, you can't possibly pass judgement on his accomplishments. I don't really care how you vote, that's up to you. Just vote with your head, not on the propaganda that the Republican party feeds to people while thinking they are suckers who will believe anything.
