Feds Seek Shutdown of Site Predicting '24 Biden Loss

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

These days, the website PredictIt is about the only place to go for unfiltered opinions of everyday Americans speculating on the future of U.S. politics. PredictIt users have registered their collective opinion that Joe Biden has only a 20 percent chance of being reelected in 2024—a staggeringly low number for a president who’s barely a year and a half into his term.

Naturally, the Biden Administration wants to shut it down.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), headed by Biden appointee Rostin Behnam, has decreed that PredictIt must cease operations by February 15, 2023. The reason is unclear. The CFTC’s Division of Market Oversight (DMO) explains PredictIt “has not operated its market in compliance with the terms of the letter” that authorized its operation. As a result, the DMO has withdrawn its authorization. And that’s it. That’s all the agency thinks Americans need to know.

For its part, PredictIt “maintains that all open markets are within the terms of the . . . letter.”

PredictIt lets everyone see what everyday Americans, rather than just “experts,” think about future political events, without filtering those opinions through potentially biased pollsters. This makes the site a valuable resource.
