Predicting the Vote: How I Did

November 5, 2008

Surprisingly well.  On the popular vote, I’m within a few tenths of a percentage points.  Obama looks like he is at 52.3 and I predicted 52.2.  McCain is at 46.4 and I predicted 45.9 so I was off less than 1 percent.  My electoral college prediction looks weaker.  I went for 311 and it looks like it will be 349.  Some close states like North Carolina and Indiana fell Obama’s way.  And Florida was an easier win than I thought it would be.  I look a little short on the Senate side; guessing 56 Dems and if I include Lieberman, its maybe 55.  House looks very close.  I guessed 255 and it looks to finish at about 253-255.
