What a great analysis of the presidential race just five days before election day.
Nate Silver, the respected creator of FiveThirtyEight just increased President Obama‘s chances of winning to 79%, with a whopping 300 Electoral College votes.
270 Electoral College votes are needed to become president.
President Obama’s lowest chance of winning was put at 61.1% on October 12, and it’s been steadily climbing ever since.
Silver today points to President Obama’s battleground states “firewall” holding, good news for Mr. Obama’s hopes of winning the electoral college vote, the one that truly matters on Nov. 6th.
Meanwhile, all the rightwing wackos are attacking Nate Silver. They’ve said he can’t count, is incompetent and even said he’s gay, as if sexual orientation has anything to do with counting polls.
