Nate Silver in not the end all, be all
his record may be, should be better than any one poll.

His stats approach may support more correct answers more times than not, but the concept that a batter always swinging away will result in more scores than one bunting does not mean the right batter in the right situation is not better off bunting.

The Redskins lost, so Romney's going to win.

Free-loading Republicans, it seems.

Though there are many (500+) paths to the White House, it looks like the condensed version is simple enough.


And given all the chaos already going on in states like Florida and Ohio, please don't let it come down to them (or rather, for those states, "Please let it be a landslide").

The electoral college will likely be a much bigger margin than the popular votes.

agreed.

the GOP does seem to be doing their best to suppress the urban vote though.

I think the fact that the GOP made a sudden strategy shift focusing on Pennsylvania and Minnesota shows that they realized that their hopes were slim and thought maybe they could pull a shocker in what has been considered a non swing state.

they're trying to create the illusion perception of momentum.

McCain did this too.

As per usual. I am shocked and dismayed at the situation in Florida. I live in Los Angeles and the longest I've ever waited to vote was 30 minutes. And this was in '08 in the morning rush. It's appalling to hear about 3-4 hour waits AGAIN.

Agreed. I chuckled when my Mom forwarded me a blurb from Dick Morris talking about how they had so much momentum because Obama had pulled out of Florida and NC. I felt bad explaining why he did that.

I just read this on a different forum.

"For all the Obama supporters and undecided who just don't get it:
I have a small business, in fact a business of 1, me. An LLC. I turned down a major customer today, a $100,000 a year customer. I did that for several reasons:
I cannot do all the work myself
I am afraid to hire someone
There is too much risk
There is not enough reward, all that extra work those 80 hour weeks for the next 3 months would just put me into a higher tax bracket and I would pay much of that $$$ in taxes
And the big one, I think it is 60-40 that Obama is going to win. Why should I work and pay taxes when it will be spent on abortions and wars that I do not approve of? I am not a young man anymore, the day I will face God and explain how I used my life is only 20-30 years in the future. I don't want to have paid for abortions and sent young men off to die in Afghanistan."

Am I missing some context here? Because this is just appalling if it's really true:
