CNBC’s stock analyst Jim Cramer sometimes has some wild predictions, but his call for President Barack Obama to sweep the election Tuesday by a landslide has pundits on both sides of the aisle shaking their heads.

Cramer predicted, in The Washington Post’s list of predictions from media personalities, that Obama will take a whopping 440 votes in the electoral college over 98 for Republican contender Mitt Romney.

Cramer, who is uncharacteristically quiet about his prediction, would say only “the presidential race is nowhere as close as the polls suggest.”

There’s a wide range of personalities on the Post’s poll, from the paper’s political editor Chris Cillizza, who gives Obama the nod; Guy Kawasaki, technology entrepreneur and former chief evangelist for Apple, who picked Obama; and Leslie Sanchez, Republican strategist and former Bush adviser, who picked Romney. Fox News analyst and The Hill columnist Juan Williams also picked the president.

While most of the personalities picked Obama, Cramer’s landslide prediction stood out — even from the Langley High School 12th-grade government classes of McLean, Va. — which predicted a close contest.

Of course, critics are confused by Cramer’s prediction, the Atlantic reports.

“I really can’t fathom how Jim Cramer is coming up with that,” said Business Insider’s Joseph Weisenthal. “I can’t even make a fantasy map where that’s remotely plausible.”
