Transcript for 2012 Presidential Election: Interesting Predictions
Back to presidential politics but with a twist. The gallup tracking poll gives mitt romney 51% to 45% over president obama. A different poll with different results. If you really want to handicap this race, you may want to look at some of the not so scientific indicators that people swear by. Good morning, sharon, we're just 16 days out.

If the team wins its home game before the election, the incumbent wins. And finally, there's a first lady's big bake-off, since 1992 a magazine has judged the candidate's wives recipe.
