The Corner

Tradesports

Yesterday the markets there were crazy, but overall I think that looking at them this year was useful. They were a bit more stable than the polls, for one thing. At almost any point in the last month, they were calling states such as NM, MI, HI, MN, PA, CO, and AZ correctly. A lot of people told me that various states were in play, and sometimes polls suggested they were right, but tradesports provided a good check.
