Based on the voting model that I created here, I am now going to report what that model would predict for the outcome of this election. As the title of this post already tells you, this model will likely have** low****predictive value** for this year’s election and should in no way be read as anything other than an amusing blog post. SUN is not SBS (for the purpose of this exercise, I am treating it as such, however), SOCC is particularly energized this year, there is a new coalition (S.Ex.), and the candidates themselves have almost no carryover (I believe that there is one returning incumbent, as well as two other returning candidates, but there could be one or two more) from last year. Oh and did I mention that I’m using a model based on one year of data? All of this combines to tell us that my aforementioned model will not have anywhere near the value that it had for last year. That said, I have run the predictions, so here they are:
Predicted “Future Senators:”
I’ll leave you all with that. As I said, this last bit was an exercise in having some fun, so don’t read into it too much.
