The U.S. presidential race remains a dead heat one week before Election Day but most Americans think President Barack Obama will defeat Republican Mitt Romney, according to a Reuters/Ipsos daily tracking poll released on Tuesday.
My guess is that the majority thinking Obama will win would tend at least slightly to become a self fulfilling prophecy. Some voters may vote for him precisely because they expect him to win.
Of course if there was an Angel Moron[i] S/He could sprinkle magic gullible dust on all of the non-fundamentalist voters to be sure Myth Robme would win. We wouldn't want Myth to put all of his eggs in one set of magic underwear. But since the Angel Moron[i] is fictional just like the New York State gold tablets, we don't have to worry he will skew our election.
