Election Odds

The electoral map above is a forecast for the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election. The states are shaded according to the probability of a win.

If you're a gambler, the data for this map comes from the Intrade prediction market where there are real-money contracts for each individual state based on how it will award its 2008 electoral votes. Traders who predict the outcome correctly are rewarded with the money of those who don't. For more information visit The data was updated yesterday October 16th.
