Who I think will be in the whitehouse.
Finally, polling day in USA.
Polls by the gallon and mixed readings and analysis.
Personally I want Obama to win, Romney will be a disaster.
However, I am sitting here watching newsnight and I have the pre-match nerves.
My worry is this.
Obama won last time with a massive swing in states that were traditionally Republican, and a positive message of ‘Yes we can’ and ‘Change’.
This time it has been much less positive and a republican ‘change’ type campaign has begun to work.
I will be up most of the night and I am not too convinced that the battle will be decided by Ohio. Polls have been close on too many states to gain any certainty about where the chips will fall.
Ohio provisional ballots may hold up the whole thing for 10 days but I doubt that this will be needed.
Colorado, Florida, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio and virginia are all ex-republican states and if these go to romney it will be very, very close.
Pollsters and commentators are talking about Obama ahead but don’t be surprised if disillusionment and Mitt’s polling day campaigning tip the final scales and Romney squeaks over the line.
Watching through my fingers.
God I’m scared.
