2016 Election Predictions – Calling All Political Pundits

With Election Day fast approaching, our televisions have become clogged with pundits preaching predictions for Nov. 8. Join the fun – camera crew and makeup not required – and see how your picks stack up against others in the repair station industry.

The association’s election year contest is back. Do you have what it takes to be ARSA’s 2016 Pundit of the Year? Put your skills to the test by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/r/ARSA2016Pundits.

For this election, ARSA’s government affairs team is focusing on the U.S. Senate, which currently has 54 Republicans, 44 Democrats and two independents (both caucus with the Democrats). After swinging back to GOP control in 2014, tumult on top of the Republican ticket has put the majority in doubt. We’ve chosen ten of the closest Senate races to test your prognostication abilities.

Of course, no political prediction would be complete without a presidential selection; you’ll get started by picking who you think will be the next occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Remember to pick who you think is the likely winner and not necessarily the candidate for whom you plan to vote.

We’re not ignoring the House of Representatives altogether: your final challenge will be to predict the total number of seats the Republicans will hold after the votes are tallied. (All 435 seats in the House are up for election.) You’ll get to answer the same question for the Senate, where 34 of the 100 seats are up.

Choose who you think will win – see if you have what it takes to be the 2016 Pundit of the Year.
