Prediction Results

Following up on my predictions:

– Happily I was low on the electoral vote and the percentage of the win by Barack Obama. He topped 50% and won — as of this moment — 338 electoral votes.

– I also got the Senate count right; below 60, and the House as well, but I’m glad to see I low-balled it; they ended up with 252.

– The Diaz-Balart brothers and Ileana Ros-Lehtinen were all re-elected here in South Florida, but not without a fight. I got that one right.

– I got 50-50 on the marriage equality amendments; Amendment 2 passed in Florida as I said it would — more’s the pity — and it looks like Prop 8 in California will too.

Don’t worry; I’m keeping my day job and not going into the election-picking business.
