You can post your Senate and House 2018 prediction totals here. This thread will be open until November 3rd at 10 am PST.
The person(s) with the highest point total gets 1 year added to their 270soft subscription.
For your totals, include Sanders and King (if you think they will win their seats) as Democratic seats. 50-50 is considered Republican control of the Senate (due to the Vice-President breaking ties).
For House totals, just indicate R or D and then the amount ahead. For example, D+15 if you think the Democrats will have around a 15 seat lead over the Republicans in the House (which would translate to 225-210). If any Independents are elected to the House, they will not be included in the totals.
- Correctly predict who controls the Senate +10 points
- Correctly predict who controls the House +10 points
- -1 point for each 2 Senate seat from results (-0.5 for each 1)
- -0.1 points for each 2 House seat from results (-0.05 for each 1)
For example, if someone predicts 51D-49R, and the actual result is 52D-48R, then they get +10 for predicting who controls the Senate, but -1 for being 2 away from the correct total = 9 points.
So somewhere near the top of your prediction, write (for example)
You can then elaborate as much as you’d like below that.
