WTF is up with this? Is the pumping of intrade part of some sort of freemarket ideology? Certain people on here act like it's some sort of great predictor of outcome, but I can remember quite a few instances where it's been flat out wrong. Is there any objective study out there that shows how accurate intrade has proven to be?

Intrade is never flat out wrong. The market always adjusts to reality. It will finish correct 100% of the time. It may not start there, but it will always and every time finish correct.
