TheStreet Predicts Obama Will Win the 2012 Election

Nathan Sadeghi-Nejad, TheStreet contributor:

"Obama, narrowly. Electoral count? I have no idea, but am guessing it will be close (273-265). Senate Democrats, House Republicans."

Stan Luxenberg, TheStreet contributor:

"With the economy improving, the S&P 500 has been rising. That will encourage voters to support Obama. He should take 295 electoral votes and win the popular vote with 50.5%. The Republicans will hold a majority of the House with 225 seats. The Democrats will keep 53 seats in the Senate."

Chris Ciaccia, TheStreet reporter:

"Obama wins very close with 273 electoral votes. House stays Republican, Senate slight Democratic advantage. Market rallies sharply in coming weeks (after falling Wednesday) on beast it knows, versus beast it doesn't know."

Caitlin Walsh, Web producer at TheStreet:

"In Massachusetts, we return to two Democratic senate seats because Elizabeth Warren (narrowly?) beats Scott Brown.

"Obama wins with 290. (But might lose the popular vote)."

Jonathan Heller at KEJ Financial Advisors:

"Romney wins 291 to 247. Senate: Rep 51 Dems 49. House: Rep 244 Dems 191."
