Obama is Still Killing It on InTrade

I don’t really have any big point to make here, I’m just following up on a post I did last week that compared President Obama’s standing among the InTrade punters at two points in time: (a) after Mitt Romney’s flubbed response to the Cairo attacks, and (b) after MoJo’s release of the secret fundraising video. Last week we only had a couple of days of data following the video release, but how we’ve got a full ten days. And it sure looks like the video has had a sustained effect that’s even bigger than the Cairo gaffe.

I don’t know if InTrade trends are very meaningful, so take this with a grain of salt. But it sure looks like that video has caused Romney a world of hurt.

WE'RE TAKING A SHORT BREAK…

from the big banner at the top of our pages asking for the donations that make Mother Jones' nonprofit journalism possible. But we still have upwards of $300,000 to raise by June 30, whether we get there is going to come down to the wire, and we can't afford to come up short.

If you value the reporting you get from Mother Jones and you can right now, please join your fellow readers who pitch in from time to time to keep our democracy-advancing, justice-seeking journalism charging hard (and to help us avoid a real budget crunch as June 30 approaches and our fiscal year ends).
