    Not too shabby fellas, this looks like a realistic outcome, some of the spreads are a little more than I think they might end up being. Of course that is all a function of voter turnout and there is no way to predict that.

    Bravo for going on record and putting your reputation behind your analysis, most bloggers are too scared.

  2. […] . . . let’s just hope he’s wrong about the 5 to 8% and we even get in excess of the 20 % that Right of Mississippi ( a Conservative Republican site) is guessing. We can still win. Keep working ! ( the post about […]

    Do you really think Rickey will get fewer votes than every other Democrat including Shawn O’Hara?

    Plus I’d say Riley gets 1/3 of your prediction.

    I disagree on others, but that’s the biggest thing.

    Mathematics must not be taught these days @ USM. The prediction is a percentage of the total, not actual votes.

    Never said I was clairvoyant, I could be way off but I don’t think so. There is a lot of confusion in the AG commissioners race. I believe that Riley will take votes from both Spell and Cole. Truthfully it is the race I have paid the least attention to. Lets’ see your calls and we can discuss the differences. Mine are on record and being wrong on a couple is the chance you take for nailing a couple.

    If Riley gets 20% of the vote it will spell a loss for Spell. Riley won’t exactly be pulling from Cole’s base. Cole’s base is the ACLU’ers, the NAACP’ers and other hard core liberals. Being that Riley is the only true conservative in the race, I can’t see him holding Cole’s numbers down more than Spells.

    You are probably right… I have no idea what is going to happen in that race at all. I am a lot more confident in all of my other calls.
