    There's a bit of chatter about the spread between Betfair (which, as I understand, Americans can participate) and Intrade (which we cannot)--the two sites from which the PredictWise graph is determined.  Currently, the spread is 12 points.  

    Betting for O on Intrade and R on Betfair will (essentially less fees) yield a 12 point return.   They say the Brits are banking this 12 point return by fleecing our Republicans who are artificially skewing Intrade's odds.

    Conservatives in the good ol' USA are indeed the world's outliers.  The Brits thank them for their "factless" worldview.
