And... Pence lower than Johnson!  That's a guy whose buyers have heard he's running for governor.

is there any link to a story involving Pence running for gov?

It's an announcement not a rumor, Google should do it.

http://www.wane.com/dpp/news/politics/pence-will-run-for-governor

Yeah, we had a thread discussing that a while ago.  Nothing there is official.  That's one GOP operative in Indiana saying that Pence's people have told him that he's running for governor.  Neither Pence nor his underlings have confirmed it on the record.  A few days after that story came out, Pence said that he hasn't decided what to do yet, and won't be making any announcements on this until after the first of the year:

Oh, oops.

In any case, no House member has won the White House directly since James Garfield, I think.

Not just that but a bunch of the better-knowns- Palin, Huckabee, Gingrich- are likely to pull from the same voters and donors he'd need.  Plus, likely well-funded lower-tierers Thune and Santorum.  And Daniels.  Not clear how many of those folks will run but it's probably enough to make winning the gub. nomination seem much easier to pull off.

Everyone except Palin and Huckabee (and a couple of the people at 1-2%) has slipped over the past few months.  I think that's because the volume has increased a lot, and the aggregrate #s for all the candidates combined now makes a lot more sense.  The total probability for the top 15 candidates is now ~95%.  Whereas a few months ago, it was well over 100, which makes no sense.

Huckabee passes Pawlenty for 4th place, and Bush manages to rebound to where he was two weeks ago:

GOP nomination

Romney 22.0
Palin 19.5
Thune 12.6
Huckabee 7.2
Pawlenty 7.0
J. Bush 5.5
Gingrich 4.5
Barbour 4.1
Daniels 3.9
Christie 3.6
Rubio 2.0
DeMint 1.4
Ryan 1.4
Paul 1.3
Johnson 1.2

Will Palin run?
yes 75.0

Dem nomination

Obama 85.0
Clinton 7.1
(Bayh and Biden are also on the board, but trading volume is so low that the price is meaningless.)

Winning party

Dems 60.0
GOP 42.0
other 2.6

I definitely think the probability that she runs is less than 75%, so if I'm betting on that market, I would be shorting.  But obviously, it's risky.  Up to you whether you think it's worth it.

Politico has a new article up about how Thune is in third place in the 2012 GOP nomination betting on both Betfair and Intrade, the two political betting exchanges with the highest volume:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1110/45697.html

Quote
“I suspect that Thune ranks as highly as he does because many knowledgeable observers are not convinced that the more established candidates can sustain a winning message and take the nomination,” said the University of Missouri’s Peverill Squire, a former University of Iowa political scientist who closely followed the school’s electronic market. “Thune is untested on the national stage, but he is an attractive candidate with no known warts. I think he represents a ‘rest-of-the-field’ wager, a bet many observers are willing to make at the moment.”
.
.
.
On Intrade, Romney, the former Massachusetts governor, is currently the runaway favorite: On Wednesday, his contract cost approximately 22 cents. The contract’s payout is $1 per share, so anyone who buys it at this price would win about 78 cents.

A very close second is Palin, at about 19 cents. Thune is third at about 13 cents, and Huckabee shares fourth place, at about 7 cents, with Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty.

On Betfair, Romney has the best odds — 29-5, or about a 19.5 percent chance of winning — followed by Palin, with a 17 percent chance, and Thune, with a 12.5 percent chance.

He's still undervalued.  I'd switch him with Thune.  Odd how much Thune has dropped for no apparent reason.  Pence is undervalued too.  I assume the guber. rumors.  Or maybe GOP gaining power in Midterms.

Come on, someone please knock Romney out of the lead....oh wait Palin is second.  Nevermind.  My guess is Huck and T-Paw continue their rise and Romney falls to third by spring.  I don't get why Romney is first.  Anyone think he has a real shot at winning the nomination?  How can he get past the same issues he had last time?  People see him as a phony and flip-flopper and not conservative enough.  Republicans will nominate a more conservative candidate this time around.

Palin and Daniels both gain, with Daniels (barely) edging out Pawlenty for 5th place.  Paul gains a bit too.  Pawlenty's at pretty much an all time low, and I think it might be the first time in over a year that he's not in the top 5:

Romney 23.4
Palin 21.4
Thune 12.4
Huckabee 7.5
Daniels 6.5
Pawlenty 6.3
Gingrich 4.7
Pence 4.5
J. Bush 4.3
Barbour 4.0
Christie 2.9
Paul 2.1
Perry 2.0
Rubio 2.0

Don't follow the logic of Daniels rising after the tax cut debate is rescheduled for 2012 when advocating  their permanence will be requisite to winning the nomination, unless Daniels is prepared to do that, contradicting earlier statements.  The only recent good wind for him is that the Supreme Court case on the insurance mandate looks likely to happen close to or during the primary and the timing could suck for Romney, notwithstanding his hooting and hollering for it to be struck down.  Actually, those two events in the past week would bode well for Pawlenty.  Except his problematic pardon also happened in the past week.  I wonder if Palin will ever lead intrade before Iowa.

PS can Americns get away with betting on intrade?

I find it interesting that at this point in the last Presidential race McCain was already grossing half while Romney has even broken a fourth. 

Of course, go Daniels!  It's nice to see him above Pawlenty as he deserves to be.  I do wonder what has trigger his recent upswing.

The top 3 have all dropped, and Daniels has moved ahead of Huckabee for fourth place:

Romney 21.5
Palin 19.1
Thune 10.1
Daniels 7.0
Huckabee 6.9
Pawlenty 6.0
Pence 4.5
Barbour 4.1
J. Bush 4.0
Gingrich 4.0
Christie 2.7
Paul 2.3
Rubio 2.0
Johnson 1.3
Perry 1.2

Palin's drop can largely be attributed to increased skepticism about whether she'll run, as "Palin to run for president in 2012" is down to 68.6.  Might be related to the rumors about TLC offering her a second season of her show.  Similarly, Huckabee's price might be deflated because of the rumor about him negotiating a new contract with Fox:

I wonder if intrade is corrupted by the press Thune got off it that was picked up by Colbert.  It has the effect of momentum detection akin to polls but is much easier for a candidate's people to tamper with.  Though it'd be embarrassing to get busted. As for Palin I'm not convinced she couldn't both do another season for TLC and run.  Also, I don't know Huckabee's ratings but I've expected FOX to make him a generous offer because his reupping would have an indirect boost to network wide ratings assuming his absence from the 2012 race helps a Palin candidacy.

At what point will Romney's Intrade people abandon ship?

If he's not up by at least 5 in the upcoming Florida primary poll with both Huckabee and Palin in the race, his candidacy as a duck.
