Remember this hogwash?

University of Colorado Professors Ken Bickers and Michael Berry have quite a set of bragging rights up their sleeve – namely, they’ve devised a mathematical model of the Electoral College that has predicted every Presidential race correctly since Ronald Reagan won the Presidency in 1980.

And despite recent polls showing the presidential race deadlocked both nationally and in key swing states, Bickers and Berry’s model shows a race that isn’t even close. According to them, not only will Mitt Romney win, but he will win big, taking 320 Electoral Votes to President Obama’s 218 – a result almost as decisive as President Obama’s win against Senator John McCain in 2008.

1. yes I do .... a 1st time for everything

Yes, I do remember this. Now I see where Dick Morris got his electoral forecast from. He just reduced his prediction by 5 -- I'm guessing he gave New Mexico to Romney. So I guess he can blame his forecast on teachers (professors).

Hey Dick, at least I had President Obama winning even though I had it 274 -264.
