My electoral prediction variometer is ready!

But I will not make it freely available, you will need to write me to get the Excel sheet if you want.

The reasons are simple:

It is a very simplified version of my more complex sheet

I never intended to build one, but eventually it built itself out of need

I do not want to appear competing with other sheets that I never tried anyway because I did not want to be influenced by anything.  I do not know whether other models are good or bad as I have not tried a single one of them, too busy coming up with my own one :)

I did it all on my own so I get full blame or full glory, but I do not have the need to make it a public display either way.

Then again if one of you wants to make it freely available be my guest.

In other words it is a tool to use among friends and post here whatever results you get, or comments you have.

    Hi Daniel,
    I've never posted anything on your blog, but read you always.
    I'd like to get your electoral prediction variometer. I'm keeping in one folder some polls to compare predictions with results. I have Datos Interdat, Caracas Chronicles', Miguel Salazar (sorry) and hope to have yours.
    ps. I read your "Pre-mortem" post. I completely agree with you, but we must give some credit to Chavez, who made us discover -the hard way- that we are not as civilized as we thought we were.

  2. you need to write me.
