Aye of Newt

Predictions for tomorrow's SC primary: Newt 42%; Mittens 24%; Santorum 15%; Paul 12%; Cain/Colbert 7%

Wishful thinking?

Unbelievable prediction!!! You were 4 points off on romney and only 1 or 2 points off on everyone else.

Why don't you just tell us who is going to be president, then?!

I agree on both counts: very impressive on the numbers and please put us out of our misery and tell us the ending!!

Final numbers: Newt 41, Mitt 28, Ricky 17, Paul 13, Cain 1.

I obviously way overestimated the satire vote, which was the least predictable based on recent polling, but you redistribute that, mostly to Romney, and I did OK. (I just took recent polls and guessed that Newt would get a nice surge, as was the trend, then bet that Santorum would pull away from Paul, given the age gap of their respective supporters.) Last time that happens! FWIW, my home county went for Newt over Mitt by a 40-21 spread.

I hope Florida doesn't kill the fun.
