    precisely because it's based on shares.

      during the actual election it was very close. Somehow I was a bit quicker to realize to look at how Bush carried counties so made some decent money but everyone else caught up very fast. (As in I remember buying Montana shares when i saw polling coming out to put Obama ahead, it surged but then was corrected and I sold as it corrected when ppl realized it was just that areas that when for Kerry were coming in, so on election day they are pretty close).

      •  So, did you break even at least? (0+ / 0-)

        I don't know, it reminds me of the futures Rumsfeld, etc. set up for "future terrorist attacks"...just seems like a perversion of the democratic process in order to make a buck...you know, the essence of American politics, LOLs.
