    Anyhow, since he has become a part of NYT I've been falling away from him because he seems to get caught up in the MEDIA spin as well where when he was at 538 he gave it to you straight from the hip.
    Has everybody slipped into full-on delusion mode and lost their minds here? Nate's model works the same as it did when it was giving us 95-96% chances of victory---the difference now is that the polls have moved away from us.

    You know what else? This is exactly why Nate said he would probably give up FiveThirtyEight after this year. When his model has good news for us, Republicans ooze out of the woodwork and claim he's in the tank for Obama. When his model has bad news for us, this site is full of batshit diaries about how he's not telling us what he's supposed to and is being influenced by some sinister forces out there. Give me a fucking break.

    If I were Nate, I'd be fucking fed up with this shit too.

    Compassion is not weakness, and concern for the unfortunate is not socialism.
