Limbaugh Notes Kerry IEM Futures

In a discussion of presidential polls, Limbaugh explained the presidential futures market run by the UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, and referred to graphs of the IOWA ELECTRONIC MARKETS. "And you can see when you look at both these graphs, both these charts, that Kerry's never been in the lead, a significant lead for any length of time. This is a brief bubble back in July, which has to be the post-convention bounce that Kerry's slightly up," Limbaugh said. "People are putting money behind it. You have to say the polls are relevant because the people who are making these graphs move one direction or another have to be getting their information from someplace in order to play their hunches but aside from that, it's fascinating. And they move it every day."
