MICHAEL BARONE CALLS IT FOR ROMNEY: You heard the snap call at the end of his appearance last week on Hannity; he goes into specifics this afternoon at the Washington Examiner:

Bottom line: Romney 315, Obama 223. That sounds high for Romney. But he could drop Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and still win the election. Fundamentals.

Plus this, from Ace, via the Washington Post: “Whoah: 13% of Obama’s 2008 Voters Are Defecting to Romney; 3% Undecided.”

The WaPo also believes that the GOP may add to its 2010 house gains. If that prediction plays out, Ed Morrissey writes, “we’d be looking at a 2010 midterm model … and a lot of pollsters will have egg on their faces on Wednesday.”

Speaking of which, there’s one enormous caveat to all of the above predictions: Dick Morris still thinks Romney can win.

UPDATE: Don Surber asks, “Where’s Michael Barone’s ‘don’t get cocky, kid?’”

What — doesn’t the Dick Morris addendum count?

I keed — I keed. But I think the Chicago Boyz have the right attitude going into the weekend.
