Ozean Media in connection with the Ward Scott Files recently completed a “Political You Pick ’em” contest. We asked people to enter the contest and pick who they thought was going to win – NOT polling them on who they were going to vote for. The contest was open from 10/20 to 10/27.
We agreed to keep the people who entered the contest anonymous, but we will release the opinions in the aggregate.
