Gurumurthy Kalyanaram - Forecast and Actual Results, US Elections, 2012

  1. 1. FORECAST AND ACTUAL RESULTS, US ELECTIONS, 2012 Gurumurthy Kalyanaram Final Actual Result President 332 (Electoral Votes) Forecast by GK (Based on Analysis of Polls) 309 (Electoral Votes) Senate 53 Democrats 53 Democrats House of Representatives 233 Republicans The Republicans will retain control of the House, but with a lesser majority (likely majority of about 15). Comments I predicted that Romney will win Florida, but Obama won by 50% to 49.1%. Florida has 29 electoral votes. So, 303 plus 29 is 332 electoral votes. Apart from the 53 Democratic senators, there are two independent senators (Sanders from Vermont and King from Maine) who will caucus with (support) Democrats, making their total 55. It takes 218 Representatives to constitute a majority. Republicans have won 233, a majority of 15 – exactly the predicted number.
