The moment you’ve anxiously awaited has arrived. We’ve tallied the votes and found the winners of our Alabama/Mississippi (yes, we’re a little behind) and Illinois primary prediction contest winners.
The prize: an official Fix T-shirt.
In Alabama, here were the actual results:
* Rick Santorum:34.5%
* Newt Gingrich: 29.3%
* Mitt Romney: 29%
The winner of the contest was Danndallas, one of a few commenters to guess the order of finish correctly in both races while guessing 10 points off of the actual results. (Many of you overestimated Romney’s appeal in the deep South).
For Illinois, we asked you to predict the finish of the top two candidates, along with their vote shares, with turnout as a tie-breaker.
The actual results:
The winner is StillRm, who was a mere 0.3 percent away from the actual results.
Danndallas and StillRm: Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and preferred T-shirt size. Everyone else: Better luck in Louisiana this weekend!
