Is it Jon Test-over?

As one would expect for a state as red as Montana, Tester is trying to distance himself from Biden.

The poll from J.L. Partners, provided exclusively to the Montana State News Bureau, shows Sheehy leading Tester within the margin of error, by 48% to 45% with 7% of those polled undecided.

Unsurprisingly, undecideds seem to lean R, and voters overall are focused on issues that are good for Republicans.

@SemioticRivalry I find it interesting that the Democrats are much more concerned about "threats to democracy", and the Republicans are much more concerned about "election integrity". To me they're almost synonymous.

@TimothyJohnson5c16 framing is everything

@SemioticRivalry "Daily Mail's preferred pollster has Sheehy leading Tester."

I think given that Biden lost Montana by 16 points in 2020, the market below should trade a decent amount higher than this one.

Alright shenanigans are over, back to trying to actual predict this. Newly subsidized arbitrage:

@nikki

The Split Ticket Is Real!

@Joshua my math says that the environment would have to be ~D+10 for this race to be a tossup. we'll see if i'm an idiot

bought Ṁ1,000 YES

@SemioticRivalry Is your math based purely on the Presidential election, or does it incorporate other factors?

@houstonEuler i'd rather not go into too much detail to my main counterparty, but i'll just say that it's a very simple method but isn't super well known.

@Joshua Are you just betting this higher so you get #1 in Master's league?

bought Ṁ20 YES

@TimothyJohnson5c16 there are about ten simultaneous mana fights happening across the site right now hahahah
