    Ryan Nod Leads to Obama Gains on Iowa Electronic Markets

    August 14, 2012 | By UI News Services


    The price of a contract representing Mitt Romney’s winning the popular vote in November has fallen more than 5 percent on the IEM’s Winner Take All market since he named Ryan as his vice presidential candidate Saturday morning. His contract had been trading for 41.3 cents before the nomination was announced, but more than 2 cents to 38.9 cents Tuesday morning.

    The Tuesday price means the market believes Romney has a 38.9 percent chance of winning the popular vote in November.

    Meanwhile, the price of a contract for Obama winning the popular vote has gone up 1.5 cents in the three days since Ryan’s appointment, from 59 cents to 60.5 cents Tuesday morning.

    Mebbe you should be more selective of your sources if you want to have more credibility.

    Huffpo and dot edu anything already have a pro-Obama bias as a default setting. :upeyes:

    Are people making bets on the election?

    You don't have any idea what the IEM is, do you?
