South Dakota, Montana Primary Predictions
All good things must come to an end.
Today's primaries in South Dakota and Montana mark the official end of voting in the Democratic nomination fight and, as importantly, the last chance for Fixistas to win official Fix t-shirts in our primary prediction contest.
Unlike states earlier in the process where scads of polling made it easier to know what to expect, there is very little data to go on when it comes to these final two states.
American Research Group released surveys yesterday in both states. In South Dakota, ARG had Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) ahead 60 percent to 34 percent over Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.); in Montana, the ARG poll put Obama ahead 48 percent to 44 percent.
Strategists for both candidates don't buy those numbers, however, believing that Obama is comfortably ahead in Montana and more narrowly in the lead in South Dakota.
It's up to you to figure out who's right. As always, we want the correct order of finish (with percentages) in each state. Closest to the pin in each wins an official Fix t-shirt. Another t-shirt is up for grabs for the person who most accurately predicts the dominant story line coming out of tonight's voting.
All predictions must be made in the comments section below. Any predictions emailed to the Fix will not be counted. Polls close in South Dakota at 9 p.m. eastern time so any predictions posted after that will be ruled ineligible.
Winners will be announced later this week. (Looking for the winners from the Puerto Rico primary on Sunday? It's been a little busy here over the last 48 hours, but we will have the results later in the week as well.)
Go to it!
