Sean Predicts Who Will Win Presidential Race
An energized Sean took the Hannity airwaves this afternoon - less than 24 hours before Americans begin to cast their vote for the forty fifth president of the United States. "Anyone nervous?" Sean said jokingly. "I'm not. I am not nervous. I am actually as cool as a cucumber...I'm at peace. It's about you, the voter, it's not about me or this show. I've always had faith in the American people. I have always been inspired by all of you and we're going to end up with the government that we deserve. Whatever happens, we will survive. But I expect in the next day or two that I will wake up and hear the words 'Fox News projects Governor Mitt Romney will be the forty fifth president of the United States of America," Sean predicted. There you have it, Sean's Election Day prediction. Looking at the latest poll numbers - Gallup: R 50%, O 49%, Rasmussen: R 49%, O 48%, ABCWASHPOST: O 50%, R 47% - it looks like this race is going to go down to the wire. Sean will be tweeting throughout the day tomorrow, so make sure to join the conversation by following him @SeanHannity on Twitter!
Sifting The Numbers For A Winner
"The Architect," Karl Rove, joined Sean in the show's second hour to offer his analysis of the latest electoral map data that was released today. There were about ninety-six polls in thirty-one states over the last week, but only Wisconsin changed status on the final Electoral College map, shifting from "toss up" to "lean" Obama. Barack Obama has 184 total "safe" Electoral College votes with four states (47 EC votes) "leaning" in his favor, and Mitt Romney has 180 "safe" EC votes with two states (26 EC votes) "leaning" his way. There are still eight "toss up" states (101 EC votes) the day before the election, with the numbers in Ohio, Nevada, Colorado, Michigan, Virginia, and New Hampshire unchanged from the previous week. Rove explained to Sean that tomorrow all boils down to one crucial element - the mix of Democrats and Republicans who show up to vote. Right now from polling data to early voting, the numbers favor Mitt Romney. So who does Rove think will be the next president? "Sometime after the cock crows on the morning of Nov. 7th, Mitt Romney will be declared America's 45th president. Let's call it 51%-48%, with Mr. Romney carrying at least 279 Electoral College votes, probably more," said Rove. To read Karl Rove's latest column about the 2012 Election, please click here.
Palin: Obama Used Hurricane As A Photo Op
Former Alaska governor and Fox News contributor, Sarah Palin, joined Sean on 'Hannity' to discuss the president's handling of Hurricane Sandy. Palin felt Obama's visit to New Jersey after the storm was for political gain and nothing more. "Obama got what he wanted out of that and that was the photo ops with a Republican governor so that he and the mainstream media could kind of fake that bipartisanship that in no way, shape or form does President Obama represent. He is the most partisan president I think that we have ever had," said Palin. "It's quite unfortunate because people are truly suffering and this isn't a time for politics. I think it is quite a shame that President Obama chose to seize the opportunity, along with the complicit lap dogs in the media to make it a political statement," Palin concluded.
