I don't remember what my specific predictions were.  I do know that I won four bucks off of a couple of girls in my Spanish class who bet me that Gore would win.

He he.

I had the actual 2000 results, except Gore winning Florida, New Hampshire, and Tennessee.

I thought like Karl Rove said the night before the election, Bush would win in a walk. Polls always had Bush with a slight lead over Gore. I expected a 280 to 258 type win for Bush. I had to wait 35 days for results though.

280-258 is NOT a walk.

I just assumed Gore would win because Bush was such a big jerk.
