    Well very interesting – claiming to be unskewed, claiming Obama is in the lead when Gallup, Rasmussen & give Romney a 5-7 point advantage, with a clean sweep of the marginal states.

    • If you believe Gallup polls you are going to be very disappointed in 3 weeks time.

      Again I say to you, get some facts. Looking at a very wide range of polls, and going state by state, Obama is on his way to a second term.

      I suspect when this comes to pass, rather than face up to your failure, you will go to ground and we wont see you for a while.

      Not that that’s a bad thing.

  • Silver’s predictions for the last UK general election weren’t very accurate. All polls must be treated carefully as should guys like Silver.
