Most prescient seers in Florida? The Political Hurricane blog

in Uncategorized by

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.

Peter Schorsch is the President of Extensive Enterprises and is the publisher of some of Florida’s most influential new media websites, including,,, and Sunburn, the morning read of what’s hot in Florida politics. SaintPetersBlog has for three years running been ranked by the Washington Post as the best state-based blog in Florida. In addition to his publishing efforts, Peter is a political consultant to several of the state’s largest governmental affairs and public relations firms. Peter lives in St. Petersburg with his wife, Michelle, and their daughter, Ella.
