I don't remember seeing this before:
University of Colorado model points to big Romney win | The Daily Caller

The model, the only of its kind to use more than one state-level economic indicator, has correctly predicted the winner of every presidential election since 1980.

This has probably been posted hundreds of times. It has also been stated numerous times that the model was created after the 2008 election so in reality it hasn't predicted anything.

Now don't go around stating the facts or anything, right wingers don't like that

Maybe it was the high altitude.
Maybe they were tired.
Maybe they didn't feel good.

Ace Spinner,

And the model was applied retroactively to 1980 and calcualted the correct winner every time. Obama, pollsters polling 10+ points more Dems than Repubs, the entire media corps, Europe, and the American liberals are in for a gigantic shock on Nov 6th.

Seriously, you haven't seen this before? It has been in tons of threads since August. And it has also been debunked each and every time, but thanks for arriving to the party after everyone already went home.

No spin, just reporting the facts.

Looks like you're the one doing the spinning, the polls have been pretty accurate over the last few elections. Also, anyone that thinks Romney, including this model, is going to win Minnesota would make me question their sanity.

People have no idea what 'hindcasts' are, do they? But yet some of these same people discounting this model are quick to jump on climate model predictions of the climate hundreds of years from now. Because, guess what - those models are trained and scored by their hindcast predictions of past weather/climate.

So what???????? Big deal!

The University of Colorado interviewed mass-murderer James Holmes and deemed him not only mentally fit, but the right CANDIDATE for one of their post-graduate programs.

Taking this into account, I do believe I would be somewhat suspicious concerning what the University of Colorado is advocating.
