gtraz: By that logic the GOP could run a ham sandwich and win.


That would be a candidate I could really enjoy a beer with.

Nate Silver is currently showing Obama with a 70.1% chance of winning. Who am I supposed to believe?

I think I'll go with the nerdy Jewish kid. Jews are good at that math stuff.

The school is named University of Colorado, but they abbreviate it CU?

Sounds like they might be dyslexic. I'd be wary of that 77% figure; they might have put the digits in the wrong order.

My friend pointed out that the election is now between Stool and Chair. I found that amusing.

gtraz: GanjSmokr: HotWingConspiracy: Lt. Cheese Weasel: UColorado has hit the last 7 elections on the nosey.

LOL no

It was created this year and has predicted nothing.

The poll has accurately predicted every presidential election since it was developed in 1980. It is unique in that it employs factors outside of state economic indicators to predict the next president.

The shiatty blog is wrong. Follow the links back to CU and you'll see the model was only built this year and uses historical data available only since 1980. They fit that data to the elections since then and low and behold matched the results. They haven't predicted anything.


So they're using their test set as their training set? Hilarious. They'd get an F for that project in any statistical modeling class.

Cletus C.: I don't know which would be worse, Obama winning and the mindless gloating and braying of his followers or Romney winning and those same faithful trotting out their election fraud and "bought the presidency" box of whines that will drag on for four years.

There will be no winner, ultimately.


It makes sense you offered no analysis of the consequences of their policies. Otherwise you'd just be hoping Mitt doesn't get elected.

I can just see the results of a Romney win and it pisses my face off

Does everything in his power to hamper economic growth, but recession is ending so economy finishes correcting itself. Romney gets all the credit. Obama added to worst presidents list with Carter.

Pisses my farking face off.

Or...as it says in all those financial disclosure statements, "Past performance is not an indicator of future results."

You can take your cue from the pop-up ad that appeared with TFA: "Be the first to know about more leftist abuses on college campuses. Sign up here."

Yeah...that's an unbiased, impartial source. Riiiiiiiiigggtt!

Nobody ever went broke betting on the innumeracy of the conservative movement. Could make some good money setting up a bizarro-Nate Silver website that always predicts Romney ahead.

I find it surprising that I even read the blog article... I'm not doing more work than that!

JOHN MCENROE MY CHILDHOOD NEMESIS: CampusReform.org is designed to provide conservative activists with the resources, networking capabilities, and skills they need to revolutionize the struggle against leftist bias and abuse on college campuses.

Created to give conservatives powerful new weapons in their fight for the hearts and minds of the next generation of citizens, politicians, and members of the media, CampusReform.org facilitates the establishment of conservative student networks and supports their development as a powerful voice of activism on their campuses. It makes available new opportunities for groups' interaction with alumni, parents, faculty, and other members of the broader community interested in taking a stand for conservative principles on America's college campuses.

Connecting up-to-date communications technologies to a principled stand for limited government, the free market, national defense, and traditional values, CampusReform.org makes possible a new generation of student activism to identify, expose, and combat the radical left now.


Why is everything a war with Conservatives?


War makes rape more accessible. And boy, do they love rape.
