Tor's Maine Gubernatorial Primary Prediction

Every year, I have a simple way of predicting who will win any election. Most people this year seem to think that the Republican primary for the Maine governor's race is too close to call. I think it's going to be a landslide.

My methodology is simple. On my way home from work on the eve of the primary, I count the campaign signs out on peoples' lawns. This year the count was:

Emery 5

Mills 4

Woodcock 2

For Sale 26

The results are incontrovertible. Most folks don't care about whom the GOP is putting up to try and wrest the Blaine House from Baldacci. They're abandoning ship. You know things are bad when even the socialistic Green candidate Pat LaMarche's radio ads say taxes in Maine are too high.
