The NerdWallet Election Model has been tracking the presidential election odds for months with Romney’s odds fluctuating between 7% and 33%.  Going into the final day we calculate the Republicans’ election odds at approximately 20%.  While 20% is not ideal for Romney and Ryan, it is still a one in five chance which is not insignificant.  Nevertheless, we anticipate that President Obama will win another four years in tomorrow’s election.
