  1. IOWA electronic market has lower participation this year, and you’re saying it’s a fairly accurate representation of the election. Does that mean lower voter turn out, Or, am I just reading too far into that? πŸ™‚

    1. Well first of all it *looks* like lower participation to me but that is not a rigorous assessment. The participation may be at normal levels and I’m just looking more often.

      And jumping from my flimsy assessment to a prediction on voter turnout is unsupported. IF there is lower participation in IEM it could be caused by all number of factors relating to markets, their popularity etc.
