Gibson, Former ABC Anchor, Says Obama Will Win

Former ‘ABC World News’ Anchor Charles Gibson, lecturing at Quinnipiac University this week, predicts Obama will win the November election.

Charles Gibson, the former anchor of “ABC World News,” predicted President Barack Obama will win re-election while lecturing before a crowd of more than 800 on Sept. 20 at Quinnipiac University

“Folks, Barack Obama is going to win,” Gibson said. “I don’t say that just because Mitt Romney is running an inept campaign which he is. He made a very maladroit statement on the Middle East and his 47 percent on the dole, etc. You now hear backstage rumblings from prominent Republicans who have basically written him off.

"But I say it because Barack Obama won 365 electoral votes in 2008. That’s 95 more than he needed for election. He can lose states like Indiana, Missouri and North Carolina, all of which he won four years ago, and still be elected comfortably," Gibson said. "Every electoral map projection I’ve seen puts 237 electoral votes pretty solidly in the Obama column this year. That means he only needs to pick up 33 more.”

          Watch the entire lecture. Gibson makes his prediction at the 23:10 mark of the video.

You know what's really amusing...Warren joined Patch yesterday but we haven't heard back from him, instead Marine Corps Pat joined this morning & August Ritter this afternoon. Wonder if they all share the same IP address as per their writing style.

jr. You really have to be going around life with your eyes closed. Are you happy with 8 to 10 percent unemployment rate? And before you blame Bush like your President does if things were so bad that you were handed why was his biggest piority passing the biggest tax increase with Obamacare? His lawyer argued that it was a tax. Shouldn't he have tried to get people back to work by stablizing the economy. And the biggest problem the Liberals can come up with Romney is his taxes. I'm more worried how well he'll handle the economy and my taxes then how much he paid and donated to charity to lower his tax rate. Yes the 53 percent of us who do pay taxes are concerned.

@Ksmithee, let's hope there is only one person who is writing those posts.

jr is still living at his folks house and living off the capitalist pig's money no doubt. jr, capitalism has saved more people from poverty than any system EVER (what? You mean your College professors didn't mention that?). So while you seem to be worshipping Castro and Clinton give that some thought.

Marine Corps Pat Its not amusing to 'watch' left wing dolts, imbibe the kool aid that is spewed by the main stream media. To wit--the mess we got into is as a result of the bush policies , particularly deregulation. (marine corps pat, you have heard this right? Prove it--or admit the MSM is not a great news source) 2) Obama created 4.5 mio jobs. True Marine corps pat, but what is the NET job count since Nov 2008? Why does the MSm not challenge this total deception? You believe it no doubt. But the fact of the matter is, when Obama was elected the Unemployment rate was 6.5%. It stands now at 8.1% , after being over 10%. Now we are actually hearing how he has done a good job? And people buy it? Because of all the false numbers? "the economy when obama was elected was losing 800k jobs a month!! True. For about 5 months, 2 under bush and 3 under obama that is true. But, if the economy was so bad, (and it was) then why did Obama focus his efforts on Obamacare? "The GM bailout was good. 1 why? The american taxpayer simply was asked to pay for GM union retirees pensions. The company was never going to stop making cars. It simply needed to rid itself of the burden of overly generous retiree benefits, that had it going to bankruptcy. 2--GM is headed for bankruptcy again. Then what? More hoopla on how great a job that is to pay for union workers, while most of the country struggles with their own problems?
