NEW ORLEANS, May 30 (UPI) -- A panel of astrologers at a conference in New Orleans unanimously predicted U.S. President Barack Obama will win his re-election bid in November.
David Railey, an Atlanta astrologer and spokesman for the United Astrology Conference, said a group of six panelists used various methods to predict Obama will win over presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, USA Today reported Wednesday.
Railey said a panel successfully predicted Obama's 2008 win over U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
The spokesman said this year's conference was the first to include representatives from China, where astrology is gaining in popularity.
"Everybody sees astrology a little differently," said Ingrid Zhang, 50, a Beijing astrologer. "It's important to have astrologers from around the world in the same place."
