Quote from Neumann CNN Appearance

GEORGE NEUMANN, George Daly Professor of Economics, was a guest on CNN's Crossfire talking about the Iowa Electronic Markets. Hosts Paul Begala and Tucker Carlson interviewed Neumann live outside the Pappajohn Business Building. Neumann talked about who trades in the markets and its performance in the 2000 Presidential race. He also noted the current trading in the Democratic Nomination Market. "Right now, we have one market in the Democratic Convention. And in that, Howard Dean has been the leader at 60 percent right now. But he's fallen from 70 percent about a week ago. Clark has come up from 10 percent to 20 percent. And that's been pretty much the dynamic there. Everyone else is below the radar screen," Neumann said.
