John Delaney&#8217-s statement that people (did he say &#8220-pundits&#8221- or &#8220-people&#8221-?&#8230-) were predicting a John Kerry victory in November of 2004 (while InTrade was predicting that George W.

I know that the polls were favoring Bush, slightly, but I don&#8217-t know whether the political buzz was quantified scientifically, really.
