Mike, you and I agree on the council races for the most part. I think Schoaff will lead and more then likely Crawford. After that a crap shoot. When you get down to 1% swing in voting it is anyone's race.

Even if the race ends up as you called it. Horner, Larsen, and Brightbill did have a hand in the election.

On the Mayor's race. You may be right and I am barking up the wrong tree (which will not be a first). But I see it a great deal closer and maybe a Kelty win.

I see the 2nd District race as close, but Schmidet winning.

I guess that the election is over for another year. Sylvester and Talerico have declared he winners and there is nothing left to ask except ..."Why did the Libertarians bother to run a full slate of council candidates?"

It appears that politics as usual will continue in Fort Wayne and the "old boy" influence network will prevail yet again.

I am voting for Kelty, Smith and Larson (as a single "at large" vote). I will not support a single Harrison Square proponent.

Most people's predictions turn out to be way off. They are either posting their own wishful thinking, trying to make the other side's cause look hopeless, or both. I am seriously considering banning predictions on this blog. People will still cite polling data, past election returns, factors that will play a roll in turnout, etc. I just don't want people pulling two or three numbers that add up to 100 out of their butt and calling that a prediction.

Isn't that the point of a blog to post your opinions ?

Robert Enders said...

Yes, and I just posted my opinion of predictions.

I'll take a poll on it Wednesday. Both Mike and Sam will be way off and they both know it.

Why would Mike and Sam post results that they know will be way off? That doesn't make any sense.
