On Monday and Tuesday, in homage to the "turnout is everything" analysts, I predicted the outcome of tight races based on the USA Today weather map. Today is judgment day. How accurate was the weather forecast election forecast?
Prediction: Dry weather increases Democratic turnout, and Chuck Schumer wins.
Result: Dry weather, and Schumer won.
Prediction: If it rains, devoted Republicans vote and Ellen Sauerbrey unseats Gov. Parris Glendening.
Result: It rained, but Glendening won easily.
Prediction: Rain should suppress Democratic turnout, and Sen. Lauch Faircloth wins re-election.
Result: It rained, but Democrat John Edwards defeated Faircloth.
