    The University of Colorado (CU) prediction renowned for perfect accuracy will predict a popular-vote win for Mitt Romney later this month, Campus Reform has learned.

    The poll has accurately predicted every presidential election since it was developed in 1980. It is unique in that it employs factors outside of state economic indicators to predict the next president.

    CU Political Science Professor Dr. Michael Berry, who spoke with Campus Reform at length on Tuesday, said there is at least 77 percent chance that Romney will win the popular vote.

    It doesn't matter if he does. What really matters is the electoral vote.

    It matters. If it is by a relatively large margin, it could cripple any Obama socialist initiative, and revive a continuing battle over the 10th amendment. State government could rebel in large numbers. Lawsuits galore.

    But you are right. It won't get him elected.

    Each state gets electors based on their population plus one extra for every state. So Wyoming, Montana, California and New York get a single extra vote.

    Then each state determines if their votes will be apportioned or given to the majority winner in their state.

    It's easy to predict who will be the next president. All ya gotta do is figure out who has the backing of the global banks and transnational corporations.

    Of course this also makes it easy to figure out who the next president is going to serve.

    Hint: It ain't going to be the American people.
