Obama or Romney…who will win? I find it so interesting that while some surveys say Obama leads by 4-5%, others have Romney with the same lead. Yes, there are margins of error.. but not to explain what’s truly going on. I get it, surveys are very much an imperfect science. I personally use live “markets” where people put actual money to see what the most likely results are. If investors/gamblers are willing to put their money, I’d say that is the most likely outcome. Where do things stand now? Today I looked at both InTrade (event trading) and Betfair (sports/political betting)

Betfair: Obama given about 67% chance of winning
InTrade: Obama given 64.7% chance of winning 

Do you trust survey results?
