CNN Does Scenario Analysis! (Perhaps better than some banks…)

Is it just me or is CNN more technologically advanced than its competitors? CNN’s primary coverage is simply awesome (in the more formal sense of the word). There has been lots of attention being given to technology and it’s role in reporting this election. However, to see someone pull up a monitor and immediately show how things “play out” when a particular candidate wins the various permutations of all remaining states, and to be able to vary the margins of victory on the fly, is extremely effective. And as the votes are being tallied, to be able to see population distributions and show the various districts is very intuitive.

It’ll be interesting to see this technology in action on election night.
