Parent as a much just said it's -- dead heat president Barack Obama Republican challenger Mitt Romney are basically within one percentage point -- each -- Scouts final preelection survey of likely voters with Romney holding 49% of the U -- And Obama at 48%.
Bill Kristol editor of the weekly standard and Fox News contributor joins as well.
Every one is taken a guest today and I I tell you what my guess is that the whole thing is gonna be a disaster because of the recounts.
That's my guess have given the do you.
-- -- Blogosphere opposite them.
I don't know how to have a disaster with -- on for weeks so I don't guess this'll be resolved tonight.
Probably by midnight he'll be very close race but but the states will get resolved by a portrait to.
In one direction or another and if I had to bet I would bet on Romney but it's it's awfully close that -- says they know what's going to happen.
It's getting himself we're gonna have states resolved I think by water.
Of less than 2% in many because in some of the -- -- -- key swing states what are your thoughts on Ohio and how everyone's been talking but it's all gonna come down winner take on Ohio.
Medical has awfully important says Virginia where I live -- poles of the lines were very long in Northern Virginia.
And elsewhere Virginia apparently this morning at Adobe huge turnout and I'm not sure who that helps -- those Republicans who stayed away 2008 showing up.
-- are those the Obama voters who read this successfully he mobilized in 2012 and that's a huge question I don't know which way that cuts.
Ohio have looked at couple of very careful analyses of the early voting.
And push you don't know if the early voting will be good predictor of the of the same day voting today if it is it looks like it's extremely posted may be a tiny edge.
To Romney he is outperforming in the early voting.
-- the polls -- like Gallup is plus one Romney rest Scott Rasmussen polls plus one Romney.
The battleground poll would you go hasn't slowed the -- do is dead even but if you look if you try to adjust -- likely voters -- -- plus one.
Request to Romney -- But a proposal -- more conventional polls -- tend to be for Obama at some of the key states I think Republicans do better that -- will be better than that.
You know it is just so close right but I hope we and I hope we have a clean result I hope you're wrong and we've got just doesn't go on for weeks.
Fronts but -- about a 1000000000 recap I am Wisconsin to do it anytime they want Virginia -- petition.
Dot com -- has automatic triggers in in these these percentage points or so small those independent voters could really just swing -- either way couldn't that.
Now they actually cut I think Pennsylvania we should keep a close on that I've always thought that one was more susceptible to go to -- and other people thought I think everyone else came that do in the last week and obviously the Romney can't Romney went in there had a huge rally.
The Bucks County the other night.
And has been much less advertising married embolism -- all the -- -- Florida believe me if you with the Northern Virginia all you do -- -- political ads.
President has some very few -- of -- -- that was meant it was a sort of more fluid situation.
I think better for Romney he didn't have that much you know months of just being attacked on Bain Capital and all the other stuff that he was a pummeled on and in Ohio in particular.
I wonder Pennsylvania with Cole county in the west would probably being attractive I think at some of the Philadelphia suburbs.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Romney win Pennsylvania at a very close race that would be a dramatic.
Development of this save -- wasn't really considered one of the key swing states.
It's -- just lastly Fortis.
OK so -- just after 1 o'clock eastern time obviously we know nothing right now but what do you hear in terms of voter turnout some reports from conservative sources saying voter turnout by Republican specifically Ohio is higher than Democrats.
Any more color on that.
It's easy and northern Virginia's history very high all over the place seven democratic areas Alexander -- and it's very high.
-- more Republican areas and -- in -- interest lea county Bush's swing counties but in the Republican -- of those candidates is seems high.
I think ev one's interest in the election of -- -- is important election.
I think ever will vote and that's good for the country we have very high turnout election and a clean -- without too much chef Trotter contested votes and let's hope.
A -- is a clean result of a close one tonight that will be the best of all outcomes I have my own view about who should win that of course.
But I look it's not bad that I do think the turnout -- -- -- -- remarkable all over the country and indeed in DC people awaiting an -- to vote and obviously we know which way DC is gonna -- so people really are doing there.
Civic duty and a.
I really hope you're right -- clean operative word here -- -- Bill Kristol.
