Phillies Won

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Yes, the Philadelphia Phillies won the World Series last night.

The Vegas line declared them the winners when the original game was called on Tuesday. Yup, really.

The reason I bring this up is that people can bet on elections. Not legally in the US, but in Ireland. There is also InTrade. There is, therefore, a line.

And I'm asking because I really don't know, but I'm hopeful some of you will. Has anyone ever done a comparative analysis of the lines vs. the polls? Is one more accurate, in the final analysis, than the other? And just out of curiosity, do any of YOU have money on any of this year's races?

Thanks, just curious.
