This may be a FAQ, but a couple of lite searches didn't turn it up, so here goes.

Has anyone back-checked the voting results for Dueling Fools and checked:
1) Whether bull votes outway bear, with the idea
that people bias towards positive views rather
than negative.

2) Whether the ratio of bull:bear correlates well
with fluctuations in leading economic indicaters
with the idea that people whose finances are
rosy vote rosy.

Of course I realize that it's possible that the Dueling Fools themselves persuaded voters (*smile*) but I thought it might be interesting to check the error bars for psychological factors.
