TheStreet Predicts Obama Will Win the 2012 Election

Richard Saintvilus, TheStreet contributor:

"I think the president will win, but not as with a wide margin as in 2008. I think the president will get just over 300 electoral votes with Gov. Romney earning something in the 230s. If I were to make a guess, I would say Obama, 305 and Romney, 233. Democrats win the Senate 52-46. Republicans will win the House 245-191.

"I'd like to think that the focus will be on Sandy and the victims who are yet in dire need of assistance, but overall, that Gov. Chris Christie was able to set aside any political rift and work closely with the president in assessing the damage, I think was pretty significant. Perhaps, this might have swayed in his favor those that were undecided. I don't think Republicans will use this devastation as a political platform. But I've been wrong with these expectations before. Sandy or no Sandy, I think the president was going to win - albeit a close victory. But that he was 'distantly' endorsed by Christie last week was huge."

Mark Messier, TheStreet contributor:

"Obama wins with 290 votes. Republicans take House, Democrats take Senate."

Tony Pelz, TheStreet contributor:

"OK: I'll take the (likely) opposite view of everyone else -- Romney in a landslide."

Dan Rosenblum, TheStreet contributor:

"Romney 341. Dems, Senate. House, Republicans."

Jim Van Meerten, TheStreet contributor:

"I think this will be so close that we will end up in court over Ohio and Florida."
