Thom Hartmann: Intrade has Walker above 90% - if he wins, what happens next?

1. This win would be a near fatal wound for the Democratic Party.

2. I don't know what Intrade is, our why they would have Walker at 90%, but...

 

... if he holds on to his office it will not be good for Dems nationally, and it will be awful for everyone in Wisconsin making under $200K per year.

Intrade is a type of futures market for any event that hasn't happened yet. You but futures in the event that you believe will happen. As the event become more or less likely the value of your shares rises or falls in value. It has a very good track record of being right on its predictions because it harnesses the wisdom of millions of people, especially as the event gets closer in time.

4. What happens is we stay on the same path we've been on for thirty years.

 

More for the rich, less for everyone else, descent into third world status. Of course, that happens if he loses too, just slower.
