painful short week until the election, it is now competition time.
Your mission is to correctly predict the winner of the Presidential election, the Electoral College and states won per candidate. Create your map at 270 to win and share it here. Picks are due by midnight tomorrow.
You get one point for every correct state, electoral college vote and correctly predicting the winner. You will subtract one point for every EC vote over your prediction so say you predict, 310 EC votes and the winner receives 300, you will receive 290.
If you correctly predict the Electoral College vote, the winner and get every state correct, you receive a 538 point bonus.
The tie breaker is to predict the percentage both candidates win.
First place GETS FIRST CHOICE OF THE FOLLOWING PRIZES, and so on to fifth place.
The prizes are: attend 1 (one) Georgia State University sports match of your choosing in Atlanta with yours truly.
