Leach Predicts Obama Landslide

Former U.S. Rep. Jim Leach is among several experts asked to predict the election at Politico. Even as an Obama man, his GOP doomsday scenario is striking:

Popular vote percentages: Obama 56.5; McCain 43.4

Electoral vote: Obama 402; McCain 136

Surprise states: Obama wins Missouri

House: D 375 seats; R 163

Senate: D 61; R 39

Extra credit surprise Chris Shays defeated

 There are a few dissenting storylines, like the plot thickened by IMG Chairman Steve Steckler, who has Obama winning the popular vote by 2 percentage points while losing the Electoral College 273-265. He says it all comes down to Ohio. Again.

Truth is, no one knows. But it’s fun to speculate.
