Robert Creamer crunching numbers for Obama

Progressives for Obama post Creamer arguing why the math supports an Obama victory in Nov....
The people at the website www.fivethirtyeight.com have created a statistical model to predict the odds that a candidate will win each state in the general election. The model is based on a regression analysis of recent polling and sixteen additional political and demographic factors. It assigns a likely vote spread and the numerical odds that a particular candidate will win the state. The model updates its findings regularly based on recent polling data from the state.
And the model supports an Obama victory. If anyone knows games with numbers, it's gotta be Creamer....

Moot point. Except for the real kool aid drinkers, the general public is not going to vote in four more years of Bush's utterly bankrupt policies in literally every area that he has touched. McCain supports them all.

And the attempts of right wing bloggers to sow doubt by making breathless insinuations is just going to piss people off, since the general public is also getting sick of the GOP spin circus as well.
