Afternoon Predictions: Thread Two

I asked this morning how our expectations will change throughout the day as we hear from anchors, surrogates and pundits. Your early predictions are here. What do you say now? Let's hear your afternoon predictions for both states, with point spreads.

One winner from each prediction thread will get a present from TalkLeft (I'll have to figure out a fair way to choose if there's a tie.)

An Indiana poll is below, you can still vote here in the North Carolina poll. [More...]

    though Certain Elements have tried to influence-unduly, I feel-the turn-out model:

    Clinton by 9% in IN and by 3-4% in NC.

    Our girl is a fighter, and she's just getting started.  Next stop, the White House!

    I like your predictions! (none / 0) (#8)

    I predict indecisive victory (4.00 / 1) (#4)
    by catfish on Tue May 06, 2008 at 03:57:27 PM EST
    for one of the two candidates. And an indecisive loss for his or her opponent.

    Also: much spinning in the fallout.

    I'll agree with the spinning part. (5.00 / 1) (#17)

    in NC, Obama by 11.

    Here goes: (none / 0) (#5)
    by Dalton Hoffine on Tue May 06, 2008 at 03:57:44 PM EST
    I didn't vote in the morning one, but...

    From what I see here in NC, in RTP, turnout amongst white males is high--and those I asked were for Obama. There are a number of buses and services being offered to get college kids to the polls.

    So~

    My prediction

    IN - Clinton by 8
    NC - Obama by 11

    Clinton by 9 in Indiana and (none / 0) (#6)
    by Shainzona on Tue May 06, 2008 at 03:58:46 PM EST
    BO by 8 in NC.

    I stick by my earlier predictions. (none / 0) (#7)
    by madamab on Tue May 06, 2008 at 03:59:26 PM EST
    HRC wins IN by 10+
    Obama wins NC by 2-5

    Of course, I'm usually wrong about percentages and stuff. But I refuse to change my ideas based on such silly things as facts. ;-)

    Clinton by 11 (none / 0) (#9)
    by DJ on Tue May 06, 2008 at 04:00:32 PM EST
    and Clinton by 1

    Yeah that's right! n/t (none / 0) (#13)

    by dugan49 on Tue May 06, 2008 at 04:01:33 PM EST
    the poll consensus is always right. Clinton wins Indiana by 3 or 4 pts .    Obama wins N.C. by 8 or 9.

    Wish I had better news.

    If that hapens, it is over and (none / 0) (#21)

    by Anne on Tue May 06, 2008 at 04:46:30 PM EST
    for Hillary +9 in Indiana
    Obama by <3 in NC

    Willing to go +12 and Obama by <1 as my margin of error always works in Hill's favor.

    Here's hoping :) (none / 0) (#28)

    from this morning's prediction but will bump each candidate's margin of victory up a bit.

    Indiana - Clinton by 9.2%
    North Carolina - Obama by 4.4%

    I say (none / 0) (#37)
    by g8grl on Tue May 06, 2008 at 06:04:01 PM EST
    Hillary +8 in IN, +2 in NC.

    Everyone exits saying they voted for the messiah to avoid thuggery

    As I said in the morning thread: (none / 0) (#38)
    by g8grl on Tue May 06, 2008 at 06:11:34 PM EST
    Explanation:  People have been telling the pollsters that their vote won't be affected by Wright but they think other peoples will not vote for Obama because of Wright.  This is the same as people asking their doctor for a "friend" that has a rash.  Maybe people would like to think they are enlightened enough not to be offended by Wright, but when picking a President, they will not choose someone who has ? marks where his values should be.  I think it's likely that Obama won't get 90% of the 35% of the AA vote, or that the AA vote won't come out for someone who has made them look bad by exposing some of their extremists.

    To make this a horse race ... (none / 0) (#39)
    by Tortmaster on Tue May 06, 2008 at 06:42:13 PM EST
    ... Hillary Clinton needs to win by 100% of the vote in North Carolina and by 50% of the vote in Indiana. My real predictions:

    NC:

    Obama 54%
    Clinton 46%

    IN:

    Obama 47%
    Clinton 42%
    Operation Chaos 11%
