This topic is to re-start the discussions around the user predictions located at the 2004 Prediction page.  I have created another topic to discuss the technical issues with the feature.

There is a new "deluxe" version of the electoral college calculator in the 2004 section.  This includes a dynamic bar graph and a map generator. As I mention in the Weblog entry, the state-polygons are currently quite rough and will be refined in due time.
Enjoy,
Dave

I have compiled a (dynamic - it will evolve) user prediction map for the 2004 election from the over 100 user-submissions thus-far.  There are two ways of compiling the data:  The state map is compiled from the median winning candidate / percentage for each state.  The overall total from these data are added. A second method is to take the median of the total electoral vote from the predictions.  Both of these results are shown on the Prediction 2004 summary page.

Interestingly, not much change is predicted from 2000... only WV (as of this writing) changes from Bush > 50% to Bush > 40%.

Josh22 - no payment is required for user predictions or forum or polls comments.  These are free user interactive features.  The pay part of the site is only for the detailed data and maps.

See the new Version History graphs.  I added a first cut at this on the prediction pages.  Enjoy,
Dave
