Not a statistician, don’t play one on T.V., and didn’t stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
All I care about is an Obumma loss, by a great margin. Or at least great enough that the left has to admit defeat.

I’ll go with what I computed back in September, Romney 54.5-45.5 http://www.ihatethemedia.com/do-the-math-rasmussen-party-affiliation-survey-bodes-well-for-romney

As for EVs, I’ll go with Bob Krumm’s scenario 5 which has Romney 377-161. I just love the idea of Romney winning NJ and half of our hack-pack Senators, Bob Menendez, finding a new line of work. http://www.bobkrumm.com/blog/?p=2494

Not exactly a landslide, but an undeniable victory and humiliating defeat. Then the riots begin.
