Now, On That Romney Landslide

A few days ago, The Blaze posted a piece called:
ROMNEY LANDSLIDE: HERE ARE THE BIGGEST NAMES PREDICTING IT & HOW IT WILL HAPPEN
By the way as of this writing, the electoral college stands at 303-206 (Florida and its 29 electoral votes still unassigned) with President Obama winning.  No Romney victory.  No Romney "landslide."

It's one thing to promote your party's candidate by "predicting" a win - but a landslide?  Who are these people?

From The Blaze:
  • CNBC's Larry Kudlow predicted 330 electoral votes for Romney
  • George Will predicted 321 electoral votes for Romney
  • Dick Morris predicted a landslide, though I can't find a specific electoral college count
  • Michael Barone predicted 315 electoral votes for Romney
  • Glenn Beck predicted 321 electoral votes for Romeny
I do have a question.  If, as these gentlemen have asserted, electoral vote totals of between 315 and 330 constitute a "landslide" and if Florida's 29 electoral votes go to Obama (at this writing he's ahead with 97% of the precincts reporting) what should we then say of President Obama's 332 (303 + 29) electoral votes?

Could we then call it a landslide?

I'm just asking.

Read Thomas Sowell's "Waiving Feedom" column.
