11/03/08 now updating every hour
however, the row regarding the bradley effect is only updated manually.
11/03/08 bradley effect added
simulating what would happen in my simulaitons if every state experienced a 2% or 3% "bradley effect", that is if polls overestimated obama's share by 2 or 3%. David Stromberg estimates here the bradley effect to be between 2 to 3% in a set of recent elections.
10/17/08 senate added
wanted to do that for a long time :-)
10/17/08 I have added
a worst-case scenario for obama, in which he loses 7 pivotal states where McCain is concentrating campaigning efforts. Karl Rove wrote an article about that, he's right that this is a possibility for McCain, even if quite remote.
09/15/08 an overview of political prediction models
from Josep Colomer's blog
09/06/08 Florida added
to the conditional probs... somehow it didn't make the first cut
08/27/08 i added more interesting conditional probabilities
including obama losing more pivotal states. I am now reporting only if they differ from the main statistics by more than 15%. Suggestions for more welcome!
08/26/08 new colors on the chart map
much more readable now. Unfortunately the google chart api only lets me interpolate between 3 colors, so I can't do much better than this.
