Remember these two posts from late last year (below)? With the general elections coming down the pike and roughly 4-1/2 months left in the trading year, I thought it would be interesting to revisit and update the 2008 S&P 500 reader prediction poll. So far the lower barbell outliers have it (GSPC -12.4%)!
While I'm not usually one to reveal my "political" affiliations, I've started us off with one vote for -0% to 7.5%. Register your revised estimate of the S&P500's year-end performance on the right-hand sidebar, and please leave comments on this one! Have some fun with them and enjoy your weekend.

Note: There were actually 23 responses to the original poll -- apparently Google managed to 'lose' half of them over the course of the year. However, the barbell distribution was similar -- best to see the post.
