We've only a few short days to the general election. Oh, where has the time flown?
From our Why-I'm-Voting-For... series earlier this cycle, it's no secret that yours truly is sticking with the incumbents.
Maybe I'm blind to the winds of change blowing -- though I really think that's just the jetstream in its usual seasonal shift -- but based on the results of the primary, and the generally low-attention this election's received, I'm inclined to say that the City Council come December will look a lot like the body come November.
Well, let's put some quantitative behind the qualitative, with the qualification that this one is just for fun. (Heck, while people are always interested in free concert tickets, I never could get Michael Bacon to claim the $25 I owe him from the last election cycle contest.)
My question to you, BCR readers, is: what do you think the combined percentage total of all four challengers (Steven Williams, Donald Hughes, Matt Drew, and Allan Polak) will amount to this cycle?
Answers should range from 0 to 400 -- though in the event either of those antipodes actually occurred, we'd be calling in Jimmy Carter as an elections observer. No decimal points.
BCR's guess? 72. Share your guess in the comments here, we'll see who comes closer.
