Predictions Redux: The Hoosier-Heel Primaries

To the many Fixistas out there who tried to predict the outcomes of Tuesday's Democratic Indiana and North Carolina state primaries -- thank you!

And now, for the winners of the official Fix t-shirts as judged by politics producer Sarah Lovenheim.
We asked for the correct order of finish, and percentage of the vote for Sens. Barack Obama (Ill.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.).

In the Hoosier state, Clinton won with 51 percent to Obama's 49 percent of the vote. The Tar Heel Sate contest wasn't that close. Obama took with 56 percent to Clinton's 42 percent.

Our Indiana winners are: David Blaylock, Alabama.independent, and Swinford. There were others who nailed the correct finishes but their predictions were sent in AFTER the polls closed thereby disqualifying them.

As for North Carolina, It's Better in the Obamas (great name) won.

We also asked for the next day's storyline. A number of Fixistas nailed it but we picked BillBolducinMaine for keeping it concise:

Storyline: "Obama, Clinton split states. Analysis shows that Clinton won't win popular vote or delegate vote, but vows to fight on."

Winners: Send your preferred size and mailing address to me at chris DOT cillizza AT washingtonpost DOT com. Losers: Dream of the day you will wear the coveted Fix t-shirt on your back.
