Given Romney's comments on one half of Americans, the situation in Egypt and Libya, and what constitutes a middle class income, you can add another ten points to that in the coming week.

When this becomes a real vote or real part of the electoral college, I will say it means something more than just entertainment
Its information relayed by a free and open market. I fail to understand why you do not realize the power of the market.

I agree. Prediction markets aren't perfect, nor do they predict the actual result - they really should be called probability markets - but they are generally more accurate than polls.

Probability "markets" are no more reliable than a Democrat sponsored poll of registered voters stacked with a disproportionate amount of dims.

More or less.

Because it's betting on something as mercurial as politics in America.

So because its a volatile market, there's more Democratic money in it than Republican.


Got it.

Not even remotely what I said, you fucking babbling idiot.

You don't track conversations very well. You just reply to the voices in your head.

Helpful hint: they're idiots, like you, too.
