Greetings, all. I’ve been a bit slow with the analysis. Disruptions in Princeton…though we do have power! It is interesting to see Governor Christie and President Obama get serious – together – about the work of recovering from what I hear is a major mess.
Reader Jeff Cardille has cooked up a cute Excel spreadsheet to allow you, on Election Night, to automatically tabulate the victory scenarios for Obama and Romney. Enter the winner as he is declared in each of 8 swing states (256 possible scenarios). The spreadsheet shows what fraction of the remaining possibilities lead to victory for each candidate. It’s neat – check it out EV-Tracker-2012 (and two Web versions) for Election Night. Soon I’ll also have a Geek’s Guide (as I did in 2008).
Thanks to Jeff C., d c, David R., Sanjeev K., and Brian C.
