POLL: Who Will Win the 2012 Presidential Election?

Now that the Democratic and Republican delegates have officially chosen Obama and Romney, Patch wants to know: Which nominee do you think will win?

It's official: With President Barack Obama's acceptance speech in Charlotte Thursday night, both the Republicans and Democrats have formally chosen their nominees for the 2012 presidential election. Let the real race begin.

A lot can change between now and Nov. 6: Gaffes, scandals or even major international news events could shift the dynamics of the campaign.

The latest Gallup Polls show registered voters preferring Obama to Mitt Romney by just one percentage point: 47 percent to 46 percent. A USA Today/Gallup poll taken just before the party conventions found American voters think Obama is more likeable, but trust Romney more able to handle the economy.

Pundits have been busy for months handicapping the major-party candidates on various factors: incumbent advantage, fundraising clout, even religion.

Patch wants to know: Regardless of who you support for president, who do you think will actually claim victory in November?

Vote in our poll below, and let us know your reasoning in the comments.

If you want to go back to a "let the big dogs role" 2 class society, elect Romney. He'll have our country right back in 1910 in no time flat.

IF Obama had a plan, he would have used it by now or should have. And IF his pan was working, the election would be a no brainer. Obama has no business experience and he has proven it. I'm not crazy about Romney but Obama has lied through out his time in office and kept no promises at all. He has done nothing good to be re-elected. He's pounding us with the same promises as he did 4 years ago. I'm still waiting for results, not promises. He's all talk and doesn't want to take down his White House brewery.

Wow TJ ..you strike me as a smart individual. Can't you see that Pres. Obama had/has a plan but he has gotten NO cooperation from his peers in congress. The Pres. isnt a King. He can propose changes but it is up to congress to make the changes.

Patrick, if you had read the entire package on "ObamaCare" I dont think think you would have the same opinion that you have now about it. What you we have been told about it through the media is just not accurate. You would also be aware that it is not a tax. Just in case you are wondering ..YES I read the whole document. It was long and dry too. Can you believe there were no pictures either?

Brian, His plan is to do the same thing he did when he came into office AGAIN. It didn't work the first time. Even his Democrats don't like it. Didn't King Obama change the immigation law, and welfare law, which is illegal, without a vote of Congress??
