President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s second firery debate at Hofstra University, October 16, 2012 in Hempstead, N.Y.

Predictors of the electoral college votes predict scenarios of which presidential candidate will become president in the final days of the November 6th election. 

Republican strategist, Karl Rove concedes in an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal that Romney will win the presidency with at least 279 votes.

 “It comes down to numbers. And in the final days of this presidential race, from polling data to early voting, they favor Mitt Romney,” wrote Rove.

Rove’s predictions are formulated by tracking the national and state polls as the polls reflect a 49-49 tie.

Blogger Nate Silver, bets $1000 to MNSBC host Joe Scarborough in a tweet for his prediction of a 79 percent chance that Obama wins the 2012 election.  Silver not only puts his words on the line, but is confident to put his money where his mouth is.

 “.@JoeNBC: If you think it’s a toss-up, let’s bet. If Obama wins, you donate $1,000 to the American Red Cross. If Romney wins, I do. Deal?”
