Worries over the confirmation of Ben Bernanke eased somewhat today as the administration reiterated its support for the current Fed Chairman and polling of Senators showed that he's at least on track to get the 60 votes needed. Traders at Intrade currently have the odds of confirmation for a second term at 90%. We are wondering if Bespoke readers, whom we think as a whole represent a good picture of 'the market', are putting the odds above, the same, or below the 90% mark. Please take part in the poll below and tell us whether or not you think Ben Bernanke will get the 60 'yes' votes needed to win confirmation for a second term by the Senate. Thanks for participating!
