After discussing the nuts and bolts of Ohio and other battleground states with Sean Hannity on Friday night (interesting in its own right), at the conclusion of the interview, Barone is asked by Hannity which candidate he believes will win. “Mitt Romney,” he replies.
Add that to Jim Geraghty’s comments that “Barring Some Sudden Change, Romney Will Win the Popular Vote,” and you have two prominent statistics-oriented conservative pundits who — at least as of Friday, October 26 — are willing to go on the record that they believe Romney will win in November.
