Jimmy Kimmel Live took their cameras to the streets Wednesday in Los Angeles, conducting a casual poll on the outcome of the second presidential debate — at 2 p.m. PST. Four hours before the debate started, show producers asked people on the street which candidate fared better.

“Who do you think won last night’s debate?” the Kimmel interviewer asked.

    Observe the eye motions of the ones who said things about the debate……..

    Then watch Romney’s eyes if he keeps them on the camera for a few seconds.

    He moves his glance around alot, typical of a con man. Or an investment banker selling a bad deal.

    This is ridiculous. I hope they had to ask dozens of people to find a few who were such relaxed and natural liars. Unless there is some other explanation?

    Now we know that Rasmussen can get a head start on the next poll without affecting the results.

    We are all making implied forecasts when we invest our money and place our trades.

    Not sure about this. I think there is a big difference between making a specific forecast and placing a positive expectancy bet. I think effective trading and investing is about making a series of positive expectancy bets, not specific forecasts. If I have a jar with 8 red marbles and 2 blue marbles, and I randomly draw a marble any single draw could be red or blue. It would be silly to forecast a single draw, but if I can get a 1 to 1 payoff for betting red, I’ll keep doing that over and over and over.
