For the Record

I suppose I should make some predictions so we can see how wrong I was tomorrow morning. I think Farrell will win here in CT's 4th CD albeit by a very narrow (4 percent or less) margin; the last two polls put her ahead and TradeSports has her as a definitive lock. Still, Blue State Republicans can be very stealthy: I live in a solidly Republican neighborhood but a passerby would not notice very many Shays signs. News 12 predicts high turnout, which certainly jibes with what I saw at 7am this morning.

I also predict Maymin will take around 3 percent of the vote. If Shays loses, the missing points will be in Maymin's tally but there will be absolutely no news coverage of Maymin as the spoiler; instead Farrell will be held up triumphantly as the People's Choice.
