While I had a particularly good night with my political handicapping — I have about $2000 in Intrade options for Obama winning Florida and Virginia which will pay off at almost three-to-one — if there is anyone who had a better night with their prognostication, it’s the Political Hurricane blog.
Kartik Krishnaiyer and Dave Trotter, the center of the storm over at the Political Hurricane, predicted the correct winners in five of the six battleground Congressional races.
But more important, Krishnaiyer and Trotter foretold the stunning defeat of Speaker Designate Chris Dorworth, long before anyone else did. The boys also smelled upsets in the making in several other legislative races, such as House District 63, where Democrat Mark Danish knocked off Republican incumbent Shawn Harrison.
Now, the Hurricane wasn’t perfect, but who is? They did not see the upset I/St. Pete Poll saw brewing in HD 65 with Rep. Peter Nehr, for example. But if you want to know who in Florida looks very smart this morning, it’s the authors of The Political Hurricane blog.
