Basically it works this way. The more people vote the more likely Obama is to being able to win. This was the case in 2008 when there was high voter turnout.

The Republicans know this and this is why they are doing everything to keep people from being able to vote.

Especially women voters...who the nasty GOP forgets about when they quote rush and think he's all funny and great

Roy was telling women who to vote for........lol...they clearly have ZERO negotiation skills.

Then again, Machiavelli's advice to keep your enemies closer is so over their heads.

Intentionally ignorant.

As for the adults in this forum, they can decide for themselves whether or not this person is credible.

Nate Silver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The accuracy of his November 2008 presidential election predictions—he correctly predicted the winner of 49 of the 50 states—won Silver further attention and commendation. The only state he missed was Indiana, which went for Barack Obama by 1%. He also correctly predicted the winner of all 35 Senate races that year.
