Psst...wanna know who is going to win the Japanese election today? My crystal ball which also goes by the name of Google Trends says it's going to be a fair sized win for Shinzo Abe of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) despite him being behind the present Prime Minister Yoshihiko Noda's Democratic Party for almost all of the election period.
Google Trends has got a 100% record so far this year in picking the winner so hock your television or pawn your wedding ring if you need to but get your money on Mr Abe.

Update: Shinzo Abe won a landslide victory in the Japanese General Election. Well done again Google, your grrrrrreat.
