Prediction: The strength of the socialist vote grows rapidly in the United States. (Numbers with asterisks are predictions.)

1888: 2,068
1902: 127,713
1904: 435,040
1908*: 1,108,427
1910*: 1,688,211

Predictor: Jack London in The Iron Heel, published 1907




Reality:  The socialist vote was on the rise, but not quite as quickly as London had hoped. 1912 saw an election where four parties brought in significant votes in the race for president, with Eugene V. Debs, the Socialist standard bearer, picked up 900,000 votes for about 6% of the vote. Debs would get roughly the same number, 914,000, in 1920 running from jail due to his anti-war activities, but because of growth in the electorate due to women's suffrage, this was only about 3% of the vote in this contest.

Looking one day ahead... INTO THE FUTURE!
