Sneaky, can we get this payout corrected? See comments. Should be zero, not 100!

SP – While my net worth would be better off the way you cashed it out, cash out should have been at 0 rather than 100.

I agree with MFWinAlford – I think this got cashed out in reverse.

Thanks SneakyPete for creating all these questions— you do a lot to keep political junkies like me happy and involved. Now I’ll have to go cold turkey until 2014.

Obama has received 303 without Florida, which is undecided at this time, according to

Although it looks like he took FL by a few thousand votes, which would make it 332.

Payout should be zero, not 100? He did not fail to get 290 votes.
