Super Tuesday Prediction Time: Vote Early, Vote Often

What a day!

Twenty-four states hold primaries, caucuses or (in one case) a convention today. On the Democratic side there are contests in 22 states with 1,681 delegates at stake; for Republicans it's 21 states and 1,038 delegates.

Put simply, it is the single-largest primary day in modern political history. And with Sens. Barack Obama (Ill.) and Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.) seriously contesting nearly every state on the Democratic side, and Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) trying to close out former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination, it promises to be a very exciting night.

And you know what that means -- it's time for another round of Fix predictions.

The rules of the game have changed somewhat to account for the HUGE numbers of states voting today. Instead of picking the top three candidates (as we have asked in the past), we want your predictions on which states each of the candidates will win and how many delegates they will wind up with after today's voting. We also want your overarching storyline for the night's festivities.

To qualify, the prediction must account for winners in all 22 states (for Democrats) or 21 states (for Republicans) as well as the 1,681 delegates (for Democrats) and 1,038 delegates (for Republicans). Just list the candidate name, the states he (or she will win) and the total delegates they will pick up today. (Note: We DON'T want the TOTAL delegate count, just where the delegates up for grabs today go.) Don't forget to throw your storyline in there too!

Although the rules have changed, the prize remains the same. Winners will receive an official Fix t-shirt to be worn proudly -- and regularly -- in the winner's home town. The t-shirt will almost certainly improve your social life and boost your IQ several points. Or not.

Predict away!
