randomjsa: Oh we know why Obama is in the position he is in and it's got nothing to do with how great he is or how 'bad' Romney is.If we had an honest media and entertainment industry Obama would not even be running for reelection and he certainly wouldn't be winning.

Christian Bale: The way he measures the poll data and his deceptively simple median method, which have correctly predicted the last two presidential electionsWHOA the LAST TWO??? No way. That's impossible. No system could be that accurate!"In '04, we only missed Hawaii."Ok that's a little more impressive. Why didn't the journalist highlight this rather than "BOTH of the last TWO elections"
Christian Bale: Of course, his BCS computer was trashed by Farkers for saying Oregon State is currently #1.So Farkers don't respect astro-physicists and therefore science, I guess. Or they're just smarter than him.I wonder which it is.
Chabash: Whoa, hang on there... None of us Beavers expect to stay there long, but you can give us a moment to shine for Christ's sake!

Phil Moskowitz: There's gotta be some massive fraud that'll shave some points, surely.
impaler: Correct me if I'm wrong, but Nate Silver uses the Monte Carlo method?
beefoe: Wow, 99 states out of 100 correct one month out. Will be very intersting to watch the returns and compare to the model.
Gosling: The funny thing is, here's where Silver is more credible than the rest of the media:Silver is considering where the tipping-point states are and how things are going in them, but he's not acting as if they're tied all the time or even particularly toss-ups.The rest of the media, meanwhile, is taking states like Pennsylvania and Michigan, where the lead is getting into double digits and the ads have all been pulled because Obama has them locked up, and adamantly refusing to take them out of the toss-up/swing-state category. They're just walking back to the 270 mark from wherever it is the election actually is, and whatever the tipping-point states are, those are automatically swing states so as to drive up the ratings on election night. They're not. They're just not.
Great Odins Raven: I have a feeling my republican friends are going to be really, really pissed when they lose badly. They really think that Obama has no chance.But I guess they are probably saying the same thing about me and the democrats odds.
zipdog: This is just an attempt to convince people they do not need to go out and vote for their candidate of choice on November 7.
