And the winner is....
After hours of tabulations and calculations, we are ready to declare a victor in the Fix's election prediction contest.
Our work was made somewhat easier by the fact that only a few predictors managed to get all three winners -- Chris Christie, Bob McDonnell and Bill Owens --- right.
Before we unveil the winner, let's review the results.
New Jersey Governor
Chris Christie (R) 48.7 percent
Jon Corzine (D) 44.6 percent
Chris Daggett (I) 5.8 percent
Bob McDonnell (R) 58.7 percent
Creigh Deeds (D) 41.3 percent
New York 23
Bill Owens (D) 49 percent
Doug Hoffman (C) 45.9 percent
Dede Scozzafava (R) 5 percent
And the winner is......"jcw_colby" who not only called all three winners right, but also missed the exact percentages in them by just 12 points combined.
To the winner goes the official Fix t-shirt. If you are "jcw_colby" make sure to send me an email at chris DOT cillizza AT washingtonpost DOT com with your mailing address and preferred size.
Thanks to everyone who participated. And, with 2010 nearly upon us, there will be LOTS more t-shirt winning opportunities in the months to come.
