Two weeks ago, Kevin McCarthy was removed as the Speaker of the House. Since then, there has been no Speaker.

Jim Jordan is currently the Republican nominee and Manifold thinks there's a 50% to 60% chance that he will be the next Speaker:

The first vote on the House floor is due to take place this afternoon at Midday local time. Manifold predicts a 90%+ chance that this vote will take place today, but less than a 15% chance that it will be decided on the first vote:

The late votes from the members who missed their turn the first time around took the votes against Jordan to 20. That's a lot more than we were expecting and the shock winner of this market is 20-29!

How many Republicans will vote against Jim Jordan on the next ballot?

Miscounted the number of votes that were delayed by 1! Gosh DARN it

ah shucks

LMAO

Most fun I've ever had watching CSPAN!

It's exciting to watch the odds change live during the voting!

At the start of voting, 5-9 and 10-14 were the heavy favourites. At one point they were roughly 90% between the two of them! When the votes against Jordan started pouring in, even the 20-29 and 30+ options started spiking. Now that we're getting towards the end of the alphabet, 15-19 is looking like a clear favourite.

But quite a few Republicans missed their turn the first time through, so they could make a huge difference to the total when they vote at the end!
