McCain, Clinton Lead Iowa Electronic Markets
January 30, 2008 | Financial TimesFor the market, the U.S. presidential campaign is taking shape. Judging by trading on the IOWA ELECTRONIC MARKETS, John McCain's chances of being the Republican nominee are 76 percent. For the Democrats, Hillary Clinton's chances are put at 65 percent. Worryingly for Barack Obama, given that the market seems to have called the Republican race correctly, his futures failed to rise after his dramatic win in South Carolina.
