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:
