Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly said that Superstorm Sandy will be a factor in any victory by President Barack Obama on Tuesday.
"If Obama wins, Sandy will have something to do with it," O’Reilly told Fox News. “Hurricane Sandy will have a role because of the images.”
O’Reilly cited the television images of Obama making speeches in New Jersey amid the devastation left by Sandy — as well as his positive endorsements from Gov. Chris Christie.

“Here was the president shown in his presidential jacket. Here’s is Chris Christie next to him — and giving him a big hug,” O’Reilly said. “That picture was very helpful to the president.”
“He got more currency from Sandy than he got negative currency from Libya,” O’Reilly added. “That to me is amazing.”
O’Reilly added that during the storm’s aftermath, Romney was not as visible as the president was — even though the former Massachusetts governor collected supplies during an Ohio rally to be shipped to Sandy victims.
“For five days, the Romney campaign was not in the news,” O’Reilly said. “That helped the president a lot.”
As a result, “If Mitt Romney loses Ohio, the president is re-elected,” O’Reilly added.
