Pederson has moved up. I saw him at 27% in the last poll. Hmmm......I smell an upset.

That reminds me of that time that that election projection website predicted a Kerry win in Utah because of a faulty projection algorithm.

Algorithm?  Fancy word for "assume whatever trend was in the last two polls will continue until election day."

Well, the way he made the calculated prediction was essentially to get the best fit for the data points to two straight lines (one for Kerry and one for Bush) and then make the prediction be whatever the percentages are when the x-value on the line is November 2.

Unfortunately, there were only two whole polls from Utah, which made this procedure rather subject to the margin of error, and he edited the algorithm to simply use the last poll received if there were three polls or less from that state.

Yes, Scoonie says it will be within 10%, but why stop there.

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

I can imagine both Napolitano and Kyl winning re-election by similar margins over their Republican and Democrat opponents
