Crystal Ball: Predicting Michigan GOP Primary Results

By ABC News

Feb 28, 2012 5:58pm

We’re journalists, not prognosticators. But in this business, sometimes it is just irresistible to try our luck at forecasting primary results. Below, ABC News staffers offer predictions on who will win the Michigan primary, when the last polls close at 8 p.m. ET and 9 p.m. ET.  In Iowa, ABC’s Jonathan Karl won the crystal ball after Rick Santorum became the ultimate victor of the caucuses there. In New Hampshire, Matt Negrin had the best prediction (but just barely).  In South Carolina, ABC’s Shush Walshe won bragging rights.  And Florida was a toss-up. So without further ado, here are our predictions for Michigan:
