A Romney win in Ohio would put his odds of winning the presidency at parity with Obama. According to current prices, the conditional probability of a Romney presidency is 47.0% if he wins Ohio and 0.9% if he loses this state.

Under current prices, if Romney loses OH, his probability of winning the presidency is 0.87% = 0.83/(0.83 + 94.11). But if Romney wins OH, his probability of winning the presidency is 43.65% = 2.20/(2.20 + 2.84).

This sort of conditional probability calculation was my motivation for creating the market. Thanks for playing.
