Holy Cow: Intrade!

  1. McCain has now rallied 18 points off his low several weeks back.
     
  2. Yeah, nice bump. He is up 8 points since last week and hit a life high of 50.5 today. Good action no matter which way you want to play this until Nov.
     
  3. Yes, I saw that earlier. Scary stuff.

    Pabst, you're the guy who knows it all. Make a prediction. Who will win?
     
  4. It's still Obama's election to lose. Axelrod made an unreal blunder though in picking Biden. Good luck selling the American people on his "working class" roots when his son is a million dollar a year lobbyist for "big banking." Joe didn't help his own cause by sheparding the BK bill.

    Us Republicans told ya' so. HC would've been by far the better candidate.........
     
  5. Unless I am mistake, that comment doesn't quite mesh with your earlier one:

    Obama underestimated the stupidity of the American public in an election year. A rookie mistake that will cost him the election.

    He should have tapped Clinton and be done with it. An easy trip to the White House.

    If he goes into election day even close in the polls, he'll lose big time. Research into voting patterns for minority candidates shows that polls versus actual voting results are definitely not in his favor.
     
  7. Good pump and dump action on Intrade today. McCain is back down to 44. All this excitement about Palin (and therefore McCain) is built on image and mystique (especially surrounding her record and issues) and that will change soon. This could have marked the high point of his contract. Either way, today was a great opportunity to get short some McCain, if you were so inclined. We'll see what happens after she holes back up in Alaska to study while everyone else still continues to campaign.
