No matter what you were predicting would happen last night, you can take heart in knowing that you weren't as wrong as Fox News pundit Dick Morris. Because that's not scientifically possible…
"I've got egg on my face. I predicted a Romney landslide and, instead, we ended up with an Obama squeaker. The key reason for my bum prediction is that I mistakenly believed that the 2008 surge in black, Latino, and young voter turnout would recede in 2012 to "normal" levels. Didn't happen. These high levels of minority and young voter participation are here to stay. And, with them, a permanent reshaping of our nation's politics."
Oh, well, there's your problem right there, Dick Morris. You have Backwards Understanding of Things Syndrome. Notice how you think that Romney winning with 325 electoral votes is a "landslide" and Obama winning with 332 electoral votes is a "squeaker"? I'm not moron (which, I'm assuming is what you think the word "expert" means.), but that's kind of an easy diagnosis.
I'm sorry, but I'm afraid that this syndrome is chronic. There's really nothing to do but spend the rest of your life working for Fox News.
