With recent polls, including ABC News (3 percent), Real Clear Politics (4.6) and Nate Silver’s Five Thirty Eight (4.7) indicating/forecasting a below 5 percent national vote total for Johnson/Weld one week from today – the result of a fairly consistent drop of about 1/10th of 1 percent daily for the past few weeks, and with that decline appearing likely to continue, or even increase in magnitude, IPR is opening the doors to the more psychic or reckless of our readers to put your predictions in public.
The reader who posts the most accurate vote total prediction (once the dust has settled) wins his/her choice of one of the following: A Gary Johnson 2012 LIVE FREE T-shirt, a “Polygamy Porter – I’ve tried polygamy” mouse pad, or an Evan McMullin yard sign (courtesy of the author of this article, assuming I can snag one of neighbor’s on Nov 9th).
I’m already a declared 4.97 percent of the national vote total (but it seems now that may have been high) for J/W. While other readers are not bound by any earlier predictions, I’ll stick with mine.
So, who has the hot crystal ball? (And (ducking) where is Wayne Allyn Root when you (sorta) need him?)
