With absolutely no basis in fact or research and amounting to no more than SWAG, here’s my predictions:
Bush-Kerry — My heart says Kerry, my head fears Bush. The only thing that is certain is we won’t know for days if not weeks as Bush will seek to hold on to his unelected position by quickly running to the trial lawyers he has been bashing.
Daschle-Thune — Thune by 2% (or less).
Diedrich-Herseth — Herseth by 5%.
Amendment A (selection of judges) — Loses big (20% margin).
Amendment B (allows public schools to provide food and transportation services to sectarian schools) — Wins with at least 10% margin.
Initiated Measure 1 (repeals sales tax on food) — Loses big (more than 15% margin).
