Default NATE SILVER: Donald Trump would most likely win the election if it were held today

NATE SILVER: Trump would most likely win if election were held today - Business Insider

Quote:
If the election were held Monday, Donald Trump would likely win.

That's what renowned statistician Nate Silver projected on Monday for his data journalism outlet FiveThirtyEight.

In his "Now-cast" election model for who would win if ballots were cast Monday, Silver gave the Republican nominee a 57.5% chance of winning the presidency.

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton had a 42.5% chance of securing the nation's highest office if voters were to take to the polls Monday.

Silver's model had Trump winning in the swing states of Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, North Carolina, Iowa, Nevada, and New Hampshire. He would win 285 electoral votes in Silver's model.

Silver tracks electoral votes, which is all that matters.

Various left wing sites that track electoral votes still put
Hillary up, using words like landslide.

What I found was that all claimed that Hillary would win all the contested sites.

Not likely to happen.

Left wingers place alot of stock in the polls. They really hate it when their candidate is loosing. Kind of hard for them to face, being the hateful party they have become.

The hate they spewed is now comming back to them in spades. And the party in Philly is just beginning!!

Today's polls don't matter.
Election day matters.

Left wingers?

Um, Trump bragged about the polls throughout the primary.

Also the RNC was chock-full of people saying Hillary should be jailed/executed, so please don't pretend that your side is wonderful.

NATE SILVER: Donald Trump would most likely win the election if it were held today
Each party gets a bump after their convention...


If it were held today, I guess he would be most likely...

Although I find it interesting to note different people who denounce polls when it doesn't go their way and yet gobble up this one.

The worst thing about you on the right supporting Trump is you do it without ever knowing how he will fix the supposed problems he claims he will fix. You just want to believe. So when things get even worse if he is President you will continue covering for him. Just like Germany in the 30's

I won't.
Already said I'd be the one screaming the loudest if that happens, and I will.
Count on it.
Any more questions?

I was excited about Obama the first time around and was sold on Hope and Change.

I am supporting him in that I have no other choice.
Not Hillary, not anyone else.
My choice, not yours.
