Scott Adams commissions a survey of economists

Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame, commissioned a survey of 500 economists in which he asked them about their opinions on how the presidential candidates would do in several categories. The results may, or may not, surprise you.

Thanks, Scott Adams, for giving economists some street cred by (gasp) soliciting their opinions! Economic thinking is really valuable, even if economics is no exact science, and even if most people think that economists just do... well, they don't even know, but they think it must be unimaginably boring.
