I know someone here was touting this as an indicator of NObama's chances...can't remember who. Was it Holmez? But even they have the race in McCain's favor now. OOOPs.

He actually touted them as a source that wondered if Palin would withdrawal.

Does this mean that I could legally bet $38 for an Obama win and be paid $100 if I'm right?

If so, sign me up...

It was Taco which definitely take some of the fun out of this thread. :)

I don't understand why anybody trusts the gallup numbers at this point, they've swung so wildly. Frankly, the only number I'm paying any creedence to is the Intrade predective markets.

I've got a better idea. Just send that $38 to my paypal account and I'll spend the next year calling you a smart guy. Then you'll actually get something for the money.

Sure. Just give me your account number and password, and I'll deposit it there ASAP.

Intrade had Pawlenty at 90 the night before Palin was chosen.
