Mad Politics with Jim Cramer

Nobody really knows what is going to happen on Tuesday. Nate Silver’s infamous model today shows Obama with an 85 percent chance of winning, while Michael Barone is bullish about Romney’s chances, predicting a 315-223 electoral college win for the Republican. But one thing is for sure: The most outlandish forecast goes to Mad Money’s Jim Cramer, who has plumped for a electoral blowout for Obama — 440-98.

These are the solid Republican states. Together, these amount to 180 electoral college votes. 

If the prediction were correct, Romney would have to lose more than half of these states. Rumors that Jim Cramer is working on a new show, Mad Politics, have not been confirmed.
