Okay, folks, it’s that time of year again, to put on your political prognosticating caps and pick the winners of the 2013 statewide elections!
We have seven candidates over three races. I want you to pick the percentage each candidate will take in the race for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Also, we have a tiebreaker: The total number of votes statewide that Robert Sarvis will draw.
Post your predictions as a comment on this thread. Here’s what they should look like (pay no attention to these percentages, though).
Cuccinelli — 45%
McAuliffe — 44%
Sarvis — 9%
Northam — 85%
Jackson — 15%
Obenshain — 56%
Herring — 44%
After your predictions are in, I’ll compare them to the actual results and tally up the total percentage everyone was off by across three races. Whoever is off by the lowest total percentage wins.I have a special prize (it’s a politics-related book) for the winner.
Do not use decimal points in your prediction. For the purposes of reckoning the winner, I’ll be rounding those up and down.
You may also put in more than one prediction, but I’ll count only the latest prediction from each poster.
You must enter by noon on Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 5.
Besides the book, the winner takes the title as the 2013 Political Prognosticator of this blog.
