POLL: After the Conventions: Who Will Win the Presidential Election, Obama or Romney?

Now that the Democratic and Republican delegates have officially chosen their nominees, Patch wants to know: Who are you betting on?

And it is now official: With President Barack Obama's acceptance speech in Charlotte Thursday night, both the Republicans and Democrats have formally chosen their nominees for the 2012 presidential election. Let the real race begin.

A lot can change between now and Nov. 6: Gaffes, scandals or even major international news events could shift the dynamics of the campaign.

The latest Gallup Polls show registered voters preferring President Obama to Republican nominee Mitt Romney by just one percentage point, 47 percent to 46 percent. A USA Today/Gallup poll taken just before the party conventions found American voters think the president is more likeable, but trust Mr. Romney more to handle the economy.

Pundits have been busy for months handicapping the candidates on various factors: incumbent advantage, fundraising clout, even religion.

Patch wants to know: Regardless of who you support for president, who do you think will actually claim victory in November?

Vote in our poll below, and let us know your reasoning in the comments.

Obama should win easily. By the way. Since when are we to elect a religious prelate to Presidential office. Romney is an ordained Bishop in the Mormon Church.

Sorry people. Obummer may win in this the D state, but it's Romney all the way. People are sick on the "nice guy" who hasn't done anything for the economy since he was elected.

Obama is a races dictator and a wasteful spender of tax payers' money and should be kicked out of office as soon as possible.

If we had had an empty chair president the past four years, we would have saved at least six trillion dollars and countless of lives.
