Iowa Electronic Markets for the 2012 presidential election

This is a pretty cool combination Financial / Political blog post I must say.  How about a real futures market where you use real money to bet on the presidential campaign?  It has been around for a while.  Actually, the concept of “decision markets” has been around even longer.  At one point HP used an internal decision market to refine sales forecasts.  At any rate, checkout the main site,  jump straight to the current quotes, or look at the price history graph.
