Expand-o-meter: Signed, sealed, delivered

Posted By on Thu, May 2, 2013 at 4:37 PM

Chances of expansion passing, final reading: 100 percent
See here for previous entries on the Expand-o-Meter.

All good things (and beaten-to-death gimmicks) must come to an end, and so after 14 long weeks, the Expand-o-meter retires. Last week, the governor signed healthcare expansion bills into law. After our temperature fluctuated wildly up and down, the heat was on in the homestretch, and against all odds, expansion is coming to Arkansas. That’s something worth dancing about.

Lowest reading: Feb. 8, 35 percent

Highest reading: Mar. 29, 85 percent

The final days: The Expand-o-meter viewed expansion as a 50/50 shot the weekend before the big votes, and then veered down to 25 percent and all the up to 90 as things changed rapidly. You can look back at the crazy swings in the House vote here and on the Senate side here.
