TheStreet Predicts Obama Will Win the 2012 Election

Roger Nusbaum, TheStreet contributor:

"I believe Obama will win due mostly to Ohio. The market short term would prefer Romney and although I think the country would be a little better off with Romney there would be no economic miracle if he were to win. Obama thought he had more of a mandate in 2008 than he actually did. If this is a very close election that he wins then hopefully he will start leading more from the middle to finish out more effectively than he started."

Richard Suttmeier, chief market strategist at

"The last-minute undecided votes will put Romney over the top in enough swing states for him to get 300 or so electoral votes and a slight edge in the Senate."

Dana Blankenhorn, TheStreet contributor:

"The president wins, at about the level he won last time. The Senate remains as it is, and the Democrats gain seats in the House, but not enough to take over control. (I'd like to say they will take control, but I hate going contrary to polls.)

"Republicans will blame Sandy, and they'll blame Mitt, but they should really blame Sheldon Adelson and the other billionaires who wasted their money on ads that weren't coordinated in any meaningful way.

"Democrats should credit the Obama machine, on which more later."

Anton Wahlman, TheStreet contributor:

"3 predictions:

"1. One candidate wins by a margin very close to 270-268. I say Romney.

"2. One party obtains 51 seats in the Senate. I say the Republicans.

"3. One party loses a relatively immaterial four seats in the House of Representatives. I say the Republicans."
