Most Americans predict Obama will win Prez elections
Washington: Majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama will win the November presidential elections, even as series of latest opinion polls have thrown out a virtual statistical tie between him and his Republican challenger Mitt Romney.

According to an average of recent opinion polls compiled by Realclearpolitics, Obama has a slender lead of 1.1 percentage point over Romney.
In an email to his supporters, Vice President Joe Biden warned that they might lose the elections if they are not able to raise enough money in the coming weeks, given that the Romney campaign have outraised them for three months in a row.
"Three months in a row, Mitt Romney and the Republican Party have trounced our fundraising totals. And, along with allied outside groups, they`re using that cash to try to obliterate our side on the airwaves, outspending us in some battleground states by margins of up to three to one," he wrote.
"The pundits are saying this is how we could lose the election. You know what I say? When you get knocked down, get up. There`s no quit in America. There`s nothing we can`t do," Biden wrote.
