Wisconsin recall: A Fix prediction contest

Voters are voting in Wisconsin. And you know what that means: It’s time for another Fix prediction contest.

In the comments section below, we are looking for your best (educated) guess on the order of finish in the race between Gov. Scott Walker (R) and Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett (D) — with percentages! As a tie-breaker, make sure to include your guess on what total turnout will be in the race.

All predictions must be made in the comments section to count. And predictions must be made by 9 p.m. eastern time, which is when polls close in Wisconsin. The winner gets that prize of prizes: an official Fix t-shirt.
