I made the top %10!

Hey everyone. As many of you know, I was a full on Election 2006 political junkie. I really got into reading about the "hot" races and reading the polls daily. I even printed out a list of the races and put checks and minuses next to those that I thought would win and lose. On Election Night, I had both a blue and red Sharpe to mark the returns.

Two days before election night, I entered the Predict06 online pool as a member of Swing State Project and made my predictions. Some of you may remember that post.*

I didn't win the pool, but when I checked back today, they had posted a list of the top 50 best prognosticators in the Swing State Project pool. I came in 17th out of the 171 members! I came in 25th overall out of the 2313 who participated.




*If you have the stomach for it, you can visit the anonymous detractor who also left their predictions in the comments.

Hi you guys. I got a new computer and I lost all my bookmarks so I was looking for your blog and I used one wrong letter, I think it was an m instead of a b, and this really strange spanish language blog came up instead. Weird. I love the new Dell though. Its completly silent. We had a great Thanksgiving but we missed you. Hope you had a good one.
