Jennifer Granholm: "I actually have predicted that the media are going to declare that Mitt Romney is the winner of the first debate"

With the first presidential debate scheduled for this week, last Friday "Piers Morgan Tonight" invited a pair of political insiders to share their perspectives and predictions as Mitt Romney and Barack Obama prepare to go word for word from Denver, Colorado.

Joining Piers Morgan for a face to face conversation, Republican strategist Kellyanne Conway offered advice for the GOP camp:

"Here's what I think has to happen for Mitt Romney: he needs to bring this race back to a referendum on Obama," she told the host. "He actually needs to shift the referendum back into the incumbent, and have the debate questioners really hold the president to account for some answers in Libya, his silence on Syria, and certainly the economy."

Joining the interview from California, former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm offered a courageous and unorthodox forecast:

"The media doesn't like a lopsided race so I actually have predicted that the media are going to declare that Mitt Romney is the winner of the first debate, regardless of actually what happens," said the host of "The War Room with Jennifer Granholm." "The pendulum can not sustain itself if it's too lopsided in terms of the media."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interviews, as Conway and Granholm share further insight into the upcoming first round of Obama vs. Romney.

    Yup, I agree. There's nothing more they can say regarding Mitt being a trainwreck, so now it's time to pretend like he has a chance. They have no story if they don't create one.

      The US are always sending correspondence with exit polls to judge the honesty of foreign elections, but completely disregard them in our own country. This is absoutely double faced rubbish.

    How is he going to survive Voting Registration Fraud in Florida 2012 now ? First he insults the British, then he kisses up to the Israelis, thinking he could kiss up to Jewish American voters. Then he insults the people of Ghaza ( occupied by Israel )The Cherry on top he insults 46 percent of American people. Romney's double cherry will be registration Fraud 2012.

    Potential voter registration fraud in Florida: GOP’s own 'ACORN' scandal? ( The Christian Science Monitor)

    GOP fire the firm because they got caught of Fraud ? Had they not been caught how long would this have gone on ? Bush Won because voting Fraud did he not in Florida. Was this the same company ?

    I guess I'm feeling more sorry for Romney by the day; for the poor lad (I mean rich) hasn't a ghost of a chance of winning the US Presidency. Mind you, someone has to come "Second", which isn't that bad really, but it ain't really that good either. Still in 4 years time, he could come back & chance his arm at losing again!

    Mitt should do OK since he knows the questions and has had several days to practice his answers. If he doesn't talk about airplanes having windows that open or dogs riding on car roofs, he should be able to slide through this OK. It's the answers he hasn't had days to practice that are scarey.
