As the Minnesota Senate Race readies for a recount, I have a very simple prediction:
Al Franken will win the Senate seat easily.
By at least 1,000 votes.
I say this because there is a process set-up for a hand recount.
This means that people who made some error will have a second chance to get their ballot counted.
According to the article there were over 33,000 ballots that didn't record a Senate vote.
I'm assuming at least 1/3 of them were in error.
Of that group, I'm betting Franken wins by 10 percentage points.
This is because of the sad reality that many democrats are less informed, less skilled, and less able voters. Sometimes it is due to age or disability, but mostly due to a lack of education.
Therefore expect the Democrats to win another seat!
