Nate Silver;

Of FiveThirtyEight.com has Obama at

64.4% to WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is up 3.5% in just one week. He has Obama at nearly 300 Electoral College votes!!!!!!!!!!

Here is more great news;

On Wednesday morning, Bloomberg released a poll that showed President Obama 13 points ahead of Mitt Romney among likely voters.


This is also in response to another OP;

Yougov poll: Obama 44% Romney 44%

Yougov poll; The Economist/YouGov poll is a partnership between The Economist and YouGov, a leading online pollster, to research American public opinion. Our weekly poll, based on a sample of 1,000 adult Americans, looks at standard measures of public opinion. It also uses the speed of internet-polling to ask topical questions each week.

Some data will be published in the print edition of The Economist. But the full range of questions and answers will be published every Thursday at www.economist.com/yougovpoll.

This is from the actual polling company's website and thanks to Jenmito for the research.

For those of us who are Political Newbs, Nate Silver is a Master at polling data. He is not a pollster per se but takes the previously published polls and puts a QUANTITATIVE value to them based upon prior results. He is the go to person for anything political, except of course, Rachael.

1. That YouGov poll is not good news, but I trust Nate Silver. He's been spot on...
