Swing states should push President Obama to victory: Queen's University expert

2012-11-02

Queen’s University American politics expert Brandon Tozzo is available to comment on the U.S. presidential election on Tuesday, November 6. Mr. Tozzo will be following the voting numbers as they come in that night and will also be available to analyze the results the next day.

“Only two weeks remain in the 2012 American presidential election,” says Mr. Tozzo, a PhD history student specializing in American politics. “After the first debate, Governor Mitt Romney experienced a surge in popularity, with polls tightening across the country. Even after President Obama won the next two debates, there is a statistical tie between Romney and the incumbent. However in key swing states, Obama remains favoured to win as he has a more organized staff in Ohio, Colorado and Virginia. That will tip the numbers in his favour. Unless there is another major development, Americans look like they will re-elect Barack Obama.”
