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.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
