Dept. of Irony

The stock market, not surprisingly, is soaring on news of a Bush victory. How much money is George Soros making on this? Enough to make up whatever he spent on the Kerry campaign?

The big winner in the polling department is again the remarkably accurate George Washington University Battleground Tacking Poll:

As of 9:30am this morning, the Associated Press estimate of the final popular vote is Bush=51.1%, Kerry=47.9%, Other=0.58%, and Nader=0.34%. The Tarrance Group prediction for the popular vote, based on the GWU Battleground Tracking Poll was Bush=51.2%, Kerry=47.8%, Other=0.5%, and Nader=0.5%. (hat tip: Steve Finerock)
