Sanborn's predictions without much comment. By the way, I've voted. And my predictions do not necessarily reflect how I cast my vote.
Governor's Race: Daugaard will win decisively, but not by the margin predicted by the polls. Heidepriem's last-minute advertising will likely move a few, but not enough.
House Race: Herseth Sandlin loses by a wider margin than polls predict. She has never been loved by South Dakotans the way Johnson, Daschle and McGovern were at one time. She has made the same mistakes that Daschle and McGovern did insofar as she has become part of the Washington elite, much more quickly than either of them. She's been viewed as a carpetbagger from the beginning, and there aren't enough loyal Democrats to carry her back to Washington. Undecided voters will in the end swing to Noem. Some of Marking's supporters will enter the booth knowing he cannot win and will cast for Noem.
IM 12: The smoking ban. Smokers will not have the energy after dealing with the rest of the political season and will be too exhausted to complete their ballot. Smoking ban wins.
IM 13: I predict that many more people recognize the benefits of medical marijuana than polls suggest. It will be a surprise to pollsters, but I think South Dakotans do have compassion and this measure will barely squeak approval.
I've put them out there. What say you Forumpians? Will I be dining on Crow next Wednesday?
