Neither candidate will win a majority in 2012 Presidential Election

Another prediction: Neither Obama nor Romney will win a majority of the popular vote.

From Wikipedia:

In the United States, the president is indirectly elected by the Electoral College made up of electors chosen by voters in the presidential election. In most U.S. states, each elector is committed to voting for a specified candidate determined by the popular vote in each state, so that the people, in voting for each elector, are in effect voting for the candidate. However for various reasons the numbers of electors in favour of each candidate are unlikely to be proportional to the popular vote. Thus in four close U.S. elections (1824, 1876, 1888, and 2000), the candidate with the most popular votes still lost the election.

    Let us hope that We the People on “Main Street USA” send a clear message to this “Goldman Sachs” WH that their game is over! We must stand shoulder to shoulder uagainst such liust in power by both sides of the aisle, yet we must be guile and astute in our understanding that we have been “duped” and that not only must we have a National Energy Policy, but we must have term limits and recall initiatives for every office from top to the local school board!
    holding the all too powerful and bureaucratic school superintendents accountable line by line….
