Manchin in New Hampshire

In November, I wrote that "Joe Manchin likes to dither while the whole world watches." Some things never change. Manchin has not declared a presidential candidacy, so those of you with low forecasts score well on this one.

But Manchin is still going around New Hampshire talking about how there are "options out there." While he claims he doesn't want to be a spoiler who gets Trump elected, he hasn't given up the possibility of a third-party run.

This was yet another question where the Nonrival crowd forecast was on the correct side: at an average forecast of 35% far more people doubted a Manchin run than believed in it. We finished Season 2 on a roll!

I'll send a Season 2 wrap up email soon, along with plans for Nonrival's future not too long after that. Thanks for forecasting.
