Alabama-based astrophysicist and statistician Wes Colley says that the Presidential race is already over and that President Barack Obama is well on his way to re-election.
Using a simple method of measuring poll data which he has employed to correctly predict the outcome of the past two Presidential elections, Colley believes Obama has locked up Ohio and Virginia and holds a small lead in Florida that will jettison him to electoral victory.
“I think the operative word is disaster if you’re a Republican,” Colley told al.com on Monday. “I think the operative word is confidence if you’re a Democrat.
“These things can swing a lot. But it would have to swing a lot a lot.”
Colley teaches statistics and physics-based modeling at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. His method predicts Obama winning the election with 348 electoral votes and Romney with only 190.
