Florida doesn't matter?

November 6, 2012 - Harry Eagar
This Intrade turns out to be a great timewaster.

For example, in the last update (they come every minute), the Intraders figure Obama is a 70% chance to win but Florida is 85% to vote for Romney.

You can work out all sorts of scenarios with the various bets. I remain unconvinced that these markets exhibit "wisdom." Just a bunch of people with more money than sense fooling around.

UPDATE

I didn't occur to me, but Jon Stewart pointed out that despite all the crooked maneuvers and dirty tricks by Rick Scott and the Republicans in the Florida legislature to screw up voting (again), in which they were successful, it didn't make any difference.

The election was settled without any input from Florida. Sweet.
