#mapoli Prediction Contest!!!

Voters might not realize it, but greater Boston is experiencing its most interesting primary in years. The only thing missing — until right now — has been your chance to show that you can predict the winners better than all the other smartypants pundits out there.

Answer all 10 questions below and submit them as comments to this post, or to David@DavidSBernstein.com, or shoot them to me on Twitter or Facebook or whatever works best for you.

The deadline for entries is SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 1 at midnight.

Please provide your name, although I will not disclose your votes (so nobody will know that you predicted that the candidate you work for will lose). The winner will receive public acclaim and bragging rights.

(Apologies to the Beacon Hill set: I decided not to include any state legislature races.)
