Apparently, Romney won the Republican debate last night. He went from distant second to distinct first-place at InTrade political securities. He last traded at $51.50, with McCain close behind at $44. The market is fluid though: in light trading, the latest bid is $52, but the latest ask is $59, reflecting a lack of market consensus on exactly how valuable he is. The spread on McCain is even larger, with a bid of just $26.
Giuliani utterly failed to distinguish himself in a very placid debate. The results are in: he last traded at just $7.60.
