North Carolina Primary Forecast

Who’s going to win today’s primaries?  The “It Score” weighs in….


Last month we applied our algorithm to local elections for the first time and ended up correctly forecasting both of Utah’s state conventions with 100% accuracy (utahpolicy.com) by calculating each candidate’s “It Score”.  Because of our success we decided to apply our magic math skills and giant data sets to the calculation of “It Scores” for the candidates in North Carolina.  Sorry for potentially spilling the beans early but hopefully it reduces some tension at the conventions.  Our results…
District 13


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

The margins in this district are sparse with exception between Bill Randall and Paul Coble who have It Scores of 16 and 18 respectively.


District 12


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

Brosch is currently defeating both his would be contenders.  The Democrats in this district will need to invest in improving their It Score prior to the general election.

District 11


Democrat Winner

                                                                     
                                                                   Republican Winner

Assuming Meadows and Rogers win the nomination…Meadows is going to need to work on his digital influence to beat Rogers.
District 10


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

Republicans seem to be winning this district.
District 9


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

The It Score indicates that Pittenger likely has a significant lead over his Democrat contender Roberts…if he wins.

District 8


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

This race is looking to be tight in the general election.  The Republicans are currently beating the Democrats according to digital influence.

District 7


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner


This race will likely be tight in the general election.

District 6


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

Foriest lags Coble significantly.  Coble has a notably larger It Score relative to his Republican contenders.


District 5


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

Bruce Peller has an It Score of 23.  He will likely lose to Motsinger, but Motsinger will have difficulty catching up to Foxx who has a significantly higher digital influence.

District 4


Democrat Winner


Republican Winner

George Hutchins It Score is 22.  This means that it may be a close call between Allen and Hutchins.  Digital influence has Allen coming out on top.  Whoever wins the primary is significantly lagging behind Price and will really need to set up their campaigning.

District 3


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner


Jones will likely win.  Anderson is currently trailing for the general election.

District 2


Republican Winner


Democrat Winner

Ellmers wins with a healthy margin.  Wilkens needs some work to get within striking distance before the generals.
District 1


Democrat Winner



Republican Winner

Gubernatorial

Republican Winner


Democrat Winner


Butterfield has a healthy margin over his competitors.  DiLauro is really going to need to spend some significant work on his digital influence if we wants to beat Butterfield in the general election.
