On Intrade, the nation's preeminent futures market, where online traders bet on the outcome of upcoming events, traders are almost positive they know who will be our next president: Obama. Futures traders now give him an 92.7%+ chance of victory in today. McCain is at his lowest point to date on Intrade--this afternoon coming in at a paltry 8.0%. Intrade very often gets it right; sometimes it can be startlingly off, as it was on the morning of the New Hampshire Democratic primary this January, when traders predicted a staggering 99% chance of victory for Obama. Hillary Clinton went on to win the primary later that day.
