Election Predictions: Scorecard

Here's the round-up of pundit's predictions on who will win this "too-close-to-call" election from Real Clear Politics.

Notice one striking fact: Conservative, right-wing, bowtie-wearing Tucker Carlson is predicting Kerry to win?!

What does he know that we don't know?

Let me think ... oh yeah ... remember that guest he had on his show ... what was his name ... oh yeah, Jon Stewart!

And maybe he knows this fact too:
A poll released earlier this year by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found that 21 percent of people aged 18 to 29 cited "The Daily Show" and "Saturday Night Live" as a place where they regularly learned presidential campaign news.

And can we throw in the "cell phone" polling results -- duh! And check on Smart Mobs post on the subject -- especially the comments. Of course, Wired News has weighed in too.

And may I mention, I predicted Kerry winning way back on October 27th when no one was willing to predict that. Of course, I could be wrong.
