Wed. AM Update: Wang rises! Sam Wang's prediction now at 318 electoral votes, see below.

Nate Silver's latest prediction, as of T-minus 6 days before the election, is a 77.4% chance of Obama winning, up from a 72.9% chance just yesterday.

His electoral vote count stands at 299, up from 294.6 yesterday. This closely aligns with the current prediction of Sam Wang at Princeton Election Consortium, which stands at 305 318 electoral votes.

Obama's numbers continue their long and steady rise for the past three weeks. Look at the trends. Ask yourself: would you trade places with Mitt Romney right now?

Bonus good news: Thanks to trix in comments, new Quinnipiac Ohio poll:

Obama 50
Romney 45
Can I get a hell yeah?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
