  3. james,

    I’m just trying to summarize this weeks Senate Polls into my Computer Program. As soon as I’m finished and the Program has calculated it you’ll get Results here.

    But I could take awhile.

      • Ok…correct me if I’m wrong here….and I’m glad you did this….Alexi and Reed seem to be doing not great…but absolutely still very much in their respective races…….

        Comment by jamesb101 | December 11, 2009

  6. Reid is gonna win once he comes home to campaign with a healthcare bill on his back……

    Anything on the Alexi story from Corey?

    Comment by jamesb101 | December 11, 2009 | Reply

  7. This Program is a pretty fun thing to do.

    I used it also for the 2008 General Election between Obama and McCain.

    Didn’t want to make enemies over at P1 at that time cause I didn’t know how reliable it would be.

    Today I can PROUDLY say that my Program was the only one who got Indiana & North Carolina right.

  8. well stick with it…I believe in you…..even if you are a republican!….he, he, he

  9. but your software gives Reid and Alexi good news……

    Comment by jamesb101 | December 11, 2009 | Reply

    • Yeah, that’s even for me surprising. But the Software isn’t just based on Polls just like many others.

      It’s also based on State Patters, Trend Lines, etc.

      Comment by Daniel G. | December 11, 2009 | Reply

  10. IMO to run a Software based on Polls would be silly.

    Comment by Daniel G. | December 11, 2009 | Reply

  11. agreed…I’m interested to see how it rates other races……

    Comment by jamesb101 | December 11, 2009 | Reply

    • Currently I’ve it running on Governor Races and Senate Races. For the Governor Races I don’t have enough Information for the Races just yet.

      I’ll promise you that’ll change come 2010.
