The Primary Prediction Contest

If you’re too lazy to make your own office pool , join Trailhead’s instead. Send us your predictions, and we’ll track who is the top Trailhead soothsayer. The winner gets a blogosphere shout-out and unending respect.

The rules:

  • Points will be awarded for correct guesses on first, second, and third place finishers in the states listed. No need to get the full slate in exact order to be awarded points.
  • Certain states are weighted more than others. See the spreadsheets for point rundowns.
  • Democratic and Republican predictions will be tallied together.
  • There’s a tiebreaker just in case. Guess the number of delegates the frontrunner will have through Feb. 5. Maximum number of delegates is on the spreadsheet.

Entry is simple. Download the spreadsheet and fill out your name and your predictions. Then send it to . Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3. We’ll keep you updated.
