Although most political pundits predict Obama will win Virginia, since the 2008 Election there have been significant Republican victories in that state every year since President Obama has been in office; the winning of the governor’s office, winning control of the state Senate, and the winning three congressional seats. Virginia played a minor role in the GOP primary, Romney has committed its full attention and resources to the state when it began shifting campaign into general election mode in late September.
The October 20th results from the Rasmussen 11 key swing states won by President Obama in 2008 and considered be competitive in 2012 that collectively hold 146 Electoral College votes which include Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin shows that for first time Romney has hit the 50% mark in the combined swing states with Obama earning 46% of the vote with 3% still undecided.
The Swing State Multi blackbox graph projects the total astrological activity (the last row) of the 11 key swing states from October 1st through November 7th 2012. The graph illustrates that the swing states of Nevada, North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Wisconsin, are fairly stressed (red), with Virginia most directly impacted on the peak activity date on October 20th 2012. Therefore it seems that we have reached the critical tipping point in the Presidential contest, with Virginia being the bellwether state that will likely influence the swing state voting trend in the closing days of the race and augur the Electoral College outcome in the 2012 election.
So the question is which candidate will win the critical battleground state of Virginia in the general election, “Election 2012 – Virginia: Romney (51%) vs. Obama (46%)?” Question asked by astrologer upon reading the CNN email alert on October 20th, 2012 at 12:30 pm EDT, New York, N.Y. According to Intrade, the world’s largest prediction market, Romney has a 55% chance of winning, with Obama at a 44% probability of winning the state of Virginia. Therefore Romney is the Favorite in the race and Obama the underdog.
1st House – “the favorite”: The Romney Campaign
7th House – “the underdog”: The Obama Campaign
10th House – “the prize”: The Virginia Electoral College Votes
The Moon – “the electorate”: The Virginia Voters
In the horoscope, we have no considerations before judgment, therefore we can render judgment on this horary figure to determine the winner in this political contest. The 1st House of the Romney Campaign is ruled by Saturn. Saturn is peregrine but is strongly placed in the 10th House that rules the prize: the Virginia Electoral College, and is sextile Pluto which resides in the first house. The Moon which rules the Virginia electorate resides in the 1st House of the Romney Campaign and applies to Venus, ruler of the 10th House. These testimonies indicate that the foundation of Romney’s Virginia campaign is sound and gaining strength, with a solid GOP voter base that will likely neutralize the gains the President made in the state during his spectacular 2008 campaign.
Cancer is on the 7th House Cusp. Since the Moon rules the electorate, we need to move to the next sign Leo, therefore the Sun rules the Obama campaign. The Sun is also strongly placed in the 10th house indicating that the President will runing an extremely competitive race and will continue to do so into the final days of the campaign. However the Sun is in the sign of his Fall and Moon makes an applying square to the Sun, problematic testimonies for the President indicating that the his is losing his credibility gap among voters among bread and butter issues and the economy (Moon in Capricorn).
Conclusion: Although the President will continue that have the edge in Virginia based on the horary testimonies, Romney will have the time, resources, and momentum going forward to erase it. However the ruler of the Ascendant is on the sign boundary, a testimony that indicates that the path towards victory in Virginia race will not be clear with a number of unforeseen obstacles after the polls close on Election Day.
Winner: Mitt Romney
