The Motion Sick: It’s A “Close” Race!!!

I’ve been saying this to people all day, but Megan McArdle (who has a great blog) puts it best:

“This is a strange election in another way–it’s not really close, but people are watching it as if it is. In 1996, my office had to use a point spread, and post a hefty premium, to get people interested in betting on the Clinton-Dole matchup. We’ve all known for a while that Obama was going to win, wistful dreams notwithstanding. But everyone’s watching as if this were the seventh game of a tied world series.”
