Wayne Allyn Root: Why my prediction was wrong!Submitted by jeff_r0x on Tue, 11/13/2012 - 15:11
Wayne Allyn Root is now backpedaling after his prediction of a "Romney landslide" didn't pan out. I'll bet he has a bunch of gamblers in Vegas that are extremely angry at him right now.
"I predicted Mitt Romney would win the 2012 election in a landslide.
What went wrong? Was my prediction based on hope or bias?
My prediction was based on a combination of scientific evidence and common sense.
First, it was based on common sense that no president could possibly be re-elected with the worst economy of our lifetimes. With an economy that has produced more months above 8% unemployment (43 of them to be exact) than produced by all the presidents between Harry Truman and George W. Bush combined (39). People just don't vote for the guy that brings you misery, malaise, foreclosures and bankruptcies, record unemployment, and inflation at the gas pump and grocery store. This election should have been, 100 out of 100 times, a repeat of Reagan’s landslide over Carter."
