Romney by a Nickle: Flip-a-Coin Results

By November 5, 2012

Follow me on:

Earlier today, I noted that state polls within 4 points were just as likely to incorrectly pick the winner as they were to win gold for the pollsters. Races within 4 points were about as accurate as flipping a coin. So, we did just that. Let's see how they compare to our "official prediction" of a Romney win, 305-233.

North Carolina - Obama
Florida - Obama
Virginia - Romney
Ohio - Obama
Pennsylvania - Romney
Nevada - Romney
Colorado - Obama
New Hampshire - Obama
Iowa - Romney
Wisconsin - Romney
Michigan - Obama

Final Flip-a-Coin Results:

Romney - 275
Obama - 263

Special thank to my 3-year old for his help in delivering some impressive coin-flipping skills.
