Obama Won. So Did Nate Silver.

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Obama, Polls, Romney

While I wasn’t expecting such a sweeping victory, one guy was: Nate Silver. His Five Thirty Eight blog was a must read throughout the campaign and his projections consistently showed a very likely Obama win. Romney never really came close to defeating Obama in the numbers game except for the week immediately after the first […]

Obama Leads In Majority Of National Polls

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Obama, Polls, Romney

Nate Silver pulls together the new national numbers… So this definitely puts a wrinkle in the Romney narrative about winning the popular vote, but not the electoral. Of course that was a silly notion to begin with, but I’ve been seeing it all over Facebook and Twitter, as I’m sure you have too. Okay, so […]

So what stopped the bleeding? I think it boils down to two words: Joe Biden. Yeah, he was brash, but he gave folks the kind of doubt they need to take a second look at what Romney/Ryan are really selling. And Romney’s camp hasn’t really landed any strikes OR made any gaffes during that time. […]

The latest polls that came out on Wednesday were literally some of the worst of Romney’s campaign. Nate Silver puts it bluntly… Unlike many recent days, when Mr. Obama’s national polls were slightly less euphoric than his swing state surveys, Wednesday’s national polls seemed to support the notion that Mr. Obama has a clear lead […]

First, ,a href=””>let’s look at historical numbers going back to 1988… I was actually surprised to see that Obama and McCain were tied at this point in 2008, but the Katie Couric interview of Palin in 2008 didn’t happen until late September…and that’s when the tide started to shift. And then you had the financial […]

Well…the numbers show us that Dems and Repubs have pretty much made up their minds. But those Indies that Romney talked about in the video? Yeah, they’re still figuring it out.

More precisely, Romney and the RNC pulled in $106M. Obama and the DNC pulled in $71M. So a huge money gap there and just one more indicator that it’s set to be a tough election cycle. From Buzzfeed: Earlier today the Romney campaign announced its $106 million haul, split with the Romney Victory joint fundraising […]
