Silver hit a jackpot last election, 2008. with his predictions, even though he probably fudged, and it wasn't that difficult to call. Silver should thank his lucky stars and ride his credibility on out in a long career of respect for his expert analysis, but he's letting his Obama loyalty fog his reason.
Silver can't expect anyone with a tad of insight into this election to believe that Romney is losing by 5 points in Ohio and that Obama has a 67% chance of winning. Silver is throwing his career away, and for what? Does he think the Demcoratic Party will reward his loyalty? They will discard him like the discredited Obama-fool he's become. It's not too late Nate to do the right thing and objectively make your picks. Such a promising career he had.
