Larry Kudlow should stick to supply-side economics. The CNBC host was so swept up in his dreams of a Romney presidency that he turned in the worst political prediction of the entire punditocracy, according to Pundittracker.com, which singles out Kudlow for his embarrassingly bad prediction.
Kudlow said Romney would coast to victory with 330 electoral votes. He turned out to be off by, oh, 124 votes. Obama was the one walloping Romney in the Electoral College, the final scoreboard reading Obama: 332 votes, Romney: 206 votes. Not even Glenn Beck, the firebrand conservative known for hyperbole, predicted Romney would earn so many electoral votes.
