Contest participants see big day for Dems

More than 200 visitors to WisPolitics.com submitted entries in this
year's election prediction contest. Averaged out, a solid majority of
respondents predicted a Democratic sweep on Tuesday.

In the presidential race, 83 percent predicted Barack Obama would win
the national race while 15 percent picked John McCain and a handful
picked either Libertarian Bob Barr or the Green Party's Cynthia
McKinney. A wider majority -- 94 percent -- predicted a Wisconsin win
for Obama.

In the 8th Congressional District rematch between Democrat Steve Kagen and
Republican John Gard, 83 percent picked Kagen and 17 percent picked
Gard.

The contest also asked respondents to guess the partisan breakdown in
the state Legislature. In the Assembly, 71 percent of respondents
predicted Democratic control, 5 percent predicted a tie (49 from each
party plus one independent) and 25 percent predicted it would remain in
Republican hands. In the Senate, 59 percent predicted a Democratic
majority while 41 percent predicted Republicans would take control.
