NYTimes: Intrade.com is one of the best predictors of national elections

This via TechPresident:

Online prediction market Intrade.com is one of the best predictors of national elections, reports the New York Times.According to Intrade, John McCain is the favorite for the Republican presidential nomination; Hillary Clinton is the favorite for the Democrats

No, really? What would be interesting is to see their predictions closer to election day, or even closer to the primaries. Right now, people’s opinions are probably all media driven.
